Consultation and assessment

Immediate treatment should involve the PRICE routine-Pain reducing medicines, Rest, Ice packs, Compression (strapping with an elastic bandage) and Elevation which will assist in the recovery. The ankle should then be reassessed after 4-7 days. Treatment aims to provide a stable ankle with good alignment and function. Incomplete ligament rupture requires protection with an ankle brace or strapping, with early mobilization and functional range of motion exercises. It is essential for patients to undergo neuromuscular retraining exercises directed by a physiotherapist to help provide a stable ankle with a good range of movement. The treatment of complete rupture is controversial. Some advocate early surgical repair, however, secondary repair of ruptured ligaments, even years later, has produced comparable results.
