HOW CAN I RELIEVE PAIN AND DISCOMFORT CAUSED FROM AN ANKLE SPRAIN?
Ankle sprains occur when the ligaments around the joint are stretched, and can vary in severity depending on the way the structures are stressed. At the time of the injury you may experience swelling, bruising or pain in the ankle.
Bauerfeind’s high-quality supports or braces with medical-grade compression are designed to reduce ankle swelling and provide pain relief. A cushioned pad is embedded to support both the inner and outer parts of the ankle for extra protection. Our special knit material is very gentle on the skin and allows for a comfortable brace to complement your recovery process.
HOW TO TREAT PAIN CAUSED BY AN ANKLE SPRAIN?
- Regularly apply ice packs in the first few days to the affected area to help reduce swelling and pain.
- Do plenty of balance and strengthening exercises for healing and prevent risks of re-injury. Your doctor can recommend a physical therapist to teach you what to do.
- Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications and analgesic may be helpful.
- Severe or persistent pain should be investigated by your doctor.
Play it safe: Consult a doctor if you experience unusually intense and persistent tendonitis pain.
