Introduction

Ankle sprains are one of the most common musculoskeletal injuries; over half a million individuals present at emergency rooms with ankle sprains each year in the United States alone. Even though ankle sprains occur relatively frequently, they are not simple injuries, nor is their management straightforward. Clinicians need to consider the biomechanics of the passive and active subsystems. These systems include the bones, ligaments, and muscles working together to perform a specific function. Ankle injuries are usually managed conservatively, and the prognosis is generally good. However, several factors can influence recovery. These factors, when identified early, can ensure the correct treatment protocol is selected.

Aims

This course aims to discuss the complexity of ankle sprains and their management in order to achieve stable and long-lasting results.

Outline

This course is made up of videos, reading, forum posts and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:

  1. Video
  2. Reading activity
  3. Quiz

Target audience

This course is aimed at Physiotherapy and Physical Therapy clinicians, students and assistants. Other interested professionals such as athletic trainers, occupational therapists, nurses or medical doctors interested in this subject are also invited to participate.
