Here at PhysioPrescription, we get a huge amount of visitors wanting to rehab their sprained ankles as fast and as strong as possible. In light of that, we have compiled a short list of the best sprained ankle rehab tools to help you, help yourself!
All of these are really helpful in ensuring your sprained ankle rehab is effective through active rehab – and not just the old-school “wait and see” or rest approaches.
Give them ago, use them and see the difference. Not only in how fast you recover but also you will likely end up performing better and feeling stronger than before the injury.
Sprained ankle rehab tools:
1. The Bosu Ball Balance trainer.
This is perfect for not just sprained ankle rehab but also, knee, hip and core training.
2. The Balance Disc
The wallet-friendly balance re-trainer that is smaller, easier to travel with and a more economical option for sprained ankle rehab compared to the Bosu ball
3. Theraband Resistance Bands
Physios love this as there is no need for a gym, rehab exercises can be done anywhere. There is no limit to what you can do with a theraband.
4. The McDavid Light Ankle Brace
Lace up ankle braces have been shown to massively decrease risk of sprained ankle re-injury and are advised to be used for a year after ankle sprain (read more about this here).
5. Tubigrip compression tubing
The second most utilized sprained ankle rehab tool in any physio clinic. Great for managing swelling and giving light support.
