Ankles endure significant daily stress. Even minor issues can lead to injury. Ankle pain often develops gradually from repetitive micro-injuries, affecting everyday individuals and elite athletes. Conditions range from simple bruising and sprains to severe Achilles tendon ruptures or fractures.

Early consultation with a physiotherapist for your ankle is crucial. Professional assessment can address underlying dysfunctions, preventing minor injuries from becoming chronic. The best approach to ankle pain is prevention through stability and strengthening programs.

Many patients attempt self-diagnosis and treatment based on online information, often leading to misdiagnosis. This can result in more complex musculoskeletal problems or pain in other body areas. Our multidisciplinary team is trained to accurately assess whether an injury is acute, chronic, degenerative, or requires immediate medical attention.

Our ankle pain clinic treats various ankle conditions using evidence-based research and advanced technologies. Our approach covers everything from injury prevention to post-surgical rehabilitation, ensuring comprehensive patient care.

Ankle Sprains, Strains and Fractures

Ankle sprains and strains involving stretched or torn ligaments are common injuries. Ankle fractures, often resulting from missteps, are more severe and frequently occur in older individuals due to decreased bone density.

Minor sprains can cause temporary immobility and discomfort. Current best practices recommend the PEACE and LOVE protocol for treatment, replacing the older RICE method.

Fractures can affect the shin bone, fibula, or ankle joint, potentially causing pain in surrounding ligaments. The stability of the fracture is crucial in determining treatment. Stable fractures often heal with conservative measures like walking boots or casts, while unstable fractures may require surgery.

Proper treatment for ankle injuries depends on the specific location and nature of the injury. Fibula fractures typically require immobilization, while tibia fractures often necessitate surgical intervention.

Early and accurate diagnosis is essential for effective ankle physiotherapy treatment and optimal recovery from any ankle injury.

Pre- and Post-Surgical Ankle Rehabilitation

Post-surgical ankle rehabilitation in Singapore is critical for recovering from ankle surgery, aiming to restore function, strength, and mobility. The process addresses common post-operative issues such as swelling, pain, reduced range of motion, and muscle atrophy. These challenges may be more pronounced if there was a long pre-surgery wait without rehabilitation.

Our ankle physiotherapists, specializing in post-operative care, work closely with orthopedic surgeons to optimize patient outcomes. This collaboration is particularly beneficial for ankle sports injuries in Singapore.

The rehabilitation process typically follows these stages:

  1. Initial Recovery: We use advanced technologies like MAGNETOLITH treatment, Shockwave Therapy, and INDIBA® radiofrequency to break down scar tissue and stimulate cellular healing
  2. Early Rehabilitation: Introduces gradual weight-bearing activities, muscle-strengthening exercises, and proprioception and balance training
  3. Advanced Rehabilitation: Focuses on progressive strengthening, functional training for daily activities or sports, and gait training
  4. Return to Activity: Incorporates sport-specific or job-specific training, gradually increasing intensity and duration

The rehabilitation timeline varies depending on the surgery type and individual factors. Throughout the process, our team ensures alignment with the surgeon’s guidelines to facilitate a complete recovery of function and strength.

Ankle Arthritis

Ankle arthritis treatment is tailored to the specific type of arthritis present, including osteoarthritis (the most common), degenerative conditions, and rheumatoid arthritis. Early intervention for osteoarthritis can often prevent the need for surgery or joint replacement.

Ankle arthritis can disrupt muscle function, causing compensatory strain in other body areas. Physiotherapists play a crucial role in identifying these biomechanical imbalances and developing comprehensive treatment plans to address the condition and restore muscle function.

Soft tissue treatment can sometimes alleviate joint surface strain and pain. However, arthroscopic surgery may be necessary when joint surfaces are significantly damaged. For severe ankle arthritis, orthopedic surgeons may recommend ankle fusion, which removes damaged tissue and permanently fuse ankle bones, though this can lead to extended recovery times.
