Ankle sprains are one of the most common injuries that we see at our physical therapy office in Queens, New York. A simple misstep can cause the ankle to twist leaving the tendons, muscles, and ligaments in and around the ankle damaged.
For whatever reason, sometimes the wrist develops disabling pain and using the wrist only makes this pain worse without giving it the chance to heal. The most common injuries of the wrist include tendinitis, a sprain, and arthritis. Using physical therapy, it is possible to strengthen the wrist and alleviate wrist pain.
Let me tell you the best secret to never sprain an ankle again. When this secret is done after an ankle sprain, your ankle is unlikely to roll again and if it does, it most likely will not sustain an injury. The secret is ankle strengthening exercises. Strengthening exercises improve balance, ankle strength, and the muscles surrounding the ankle allowing it to handle balancing your weight.
