Ankle Rehabilitation

Ankle/Foot Summary

Concepts to Understand

  • What does the evidence suggest is the role of ankle bracing and taping in the prevention and treatment of ankle sprains? (do not rely on clinical experience, or “well I do/not believe in bracing”... what the evidence say?)
  • What are shin splints? Why is the term “shin splint” insufficient? Be sure you can detail a good differential diagnosis for anterior shin pain.
  • Ensure you know in detail the special tests for grade I, II, and III inversion ankle sprains.
  • What are the Ottawa guidelines and how are they meant to be used?
  • What are the different means of identifying a stress fracture of the foot? When is each most appropriate? Where might you see false negatives?
  • Name 2-3 special tests for a syndesmotic ankle sprain. What is the typical mechanism of injury?
  • What type of orthotic post would you use to address calcaneal (valgus/varus)?
