A sports medicine physician can assess the ankle to establish an accurate diagnosis. Pain medications can be prescribed to help with pain and swelling. Physiotherapists can prescribe a full ankle training programme to strengthen the joint as well as neuromuscular re-education to reduce recurrent ankle sprains by improving proprioception.
A podiatrist may prescribe or recommend foot orthotics to increase foot stability and with difficult cases, surgery may also be considered.
