The Biggest Key to Rehabbing an Ankle Sprain Fast

There is normally only one thing that keeps an athlete from starting rehab and it is...swelling at the ankle joint.

So in order to start rehab right away (after the doctor has confirmed that you do not have any structural damage such as torn ligaments or broken bones) you must get the swelling down.

Most doctors push the RICE program - Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation.

This method is fine if you are a couch potato, but most people who are active want to take action to get their ankle rehabilitated.

Ice is critical to reducing swelling and using an ice whirlpool definitely has advantages over just ice in a bucket because heat is taken away from the ankle so much faster.

But ice is not enough...you must use the muscles and a biomechanical movement to force the swelling out of the ankle joint.

The problem with moving your ankle to reduce swelling is the pain that you are experiencing as a result of your injury.

Its amazing to me how many doctors take the conservative RICE route with no consideration for getting the patient back into life as fast as possible.

Find a rehab program will get you back to normal in as short a time as possible.

Good luck and fast rehabbing...
