Basic First Aid How to Tell the Difference Between an Ankle Sprain a Break

You know at some point in time many of us are going to incur injuries to our lower extremities including the foot and ankle.Hi, i’m captain joe bruni and what i’m going to discuss and go over is how to tell the difference between a sprain and a possible break in the ankle or foot region.Expose the foot and the ankle region by removing any foot covering and sock that may be in the area.If the area looks discolored or angulated or not in alignment, it very possibly may be a break of the ankle.Normally, with a sprain, there will be swelling.

And discoloration, but no deformity in the ankle or foot region.Also, ask the person if they feel any numbness.Numbness is usually a sign of a break.Sprains are generally more painful than an actual break in this area.Apply some type of ice in the area to treat it for fifteen minute intervals, on and off, and a pressure bandage if it’s a sprain.With a break, normally the person will not be able to move the foot area or be able to stand on it.With a sprain, they may be able to apply slight pressure by trying to stand or.

Move the foot although, it may be painful, it generally will not be broken if they are able to move it or put slight pressure on it.With a break, they will not be able to move it or stand on it at all.A sprain or a break is a pretty painful experience and both may require a trip to the emergency department for xray and further evaluation, but with proper treatment, pain and swelling can be alleviated until the patient arrives at the emergency department.I’m captain joe bruni.Stay safe and we’ll see you next time.

How to Treat Sprains and Strains First Aid Training St John Ambulance

Music plays strains and sprains are common injuries that affect the soft tissues around joints a sprain is when a ligament has twisted or torn, while a strain is when the muscle has been overstretched.And a rupture is when a muscle or a tendon is completely torn.There are three things you should look for pain and tenderness, difficulty moving, swelling and bruising.If someone has a sprain or strain you should remember rice, which stands for rest, ice, comfortable support and elevation if someone has a strain or sprain, help them to sit or lie down.

And support their limb in a comfortable raised position.To cool the area, apply a cold compress, like an ice pack, cold pad or frozen peas wrapped in a towel.Leave the ice pack or cold pad in place or wrap a soft layer of padding, like cotton wool, around the area.Then, tie a support bandage around the area to hold it in place.This needs to go up as far as the next joint on each side.Raise the injured area and support it with something soft like a cushion.

Ankle Sprains Part 3 Rehab Protection

certainly, grade one ankle sprains are probably the easiest to treat.These are the ones that we see most commonly with our weekend warriors, and also, our athletes of any capacity.Those are patients that we typically will place in some sort of supportive brace, whether it’s an ankle stirrup brace, or an aircast.It’s important that we follow the recipe of rest, ice, elevation, and compression.We also try to get these patients into physical therapy as quick as possible.We find that the faster we’re able to get the swelling,.

And the fluid, and the inflammation out of the joint, the faster the patients are able to return to athletic activity.In patients with a grade one ankle sprain, we’ll often fit them with something called an aircast.This is basically a stirrup brace that fits on the inside and outside of the ankle to basically, give it support.In patients who are of a grade two, a strong grade two or grade three ankle sprain, we’ll get patients fitted with something called a cam walker boot, which is a very protective,.

Soft, spongy boot, that will act almost as a cast for the patient, that they can bear a little weight in, and often use some sort of assisted device, such as a crutch or a walker, to help them with mobility.In patients who are active or in an athletic situation, and even some patients who are recovering from a prior ankle sprain, we’ll fit them in something like this, which is called a velocity brace.This has a nice, rigid outer and inner structure, but it also has laces for nice,.

Tight rigidity of the ankle, so that patients in an athletic situation have the support that they need without having to worry about their ankle giving out or twisting.Grade two and grade three ankle sprains are a little bit more challenging to treat, in the respect that we follow the same paradigm of treatment, however, the time for those patients to heal is a lot longer.Your typical grade one ankle sprain will heal in about two to three weeks, whereas, grade two and grade three can often lead to.

Four, six, to eight to twelve weeks, in the most severe cases.It’s not uncommon for a grade three ankle sprain to actually take longer to heal than an ankle fracture.Because of that, it’s imperative that those patients are in physical therapy, it’s imperative that those patients are really doing their strengthening and stretching exercises to get the ankle back into the shape that they need to do their activities.In severe cases, we’ll see a rare instance where we’ll have to go in arthroscopically, clean out a joint, especially in a severe grade two.

Or a grade three ankle sprain, where there’s so much soft tissue damage to the inside of their joint, that we have to go in arthroscopically and clean it out.Typically, that’s not done for about two to three months, or even sometimes up to six months, depending on how the quality of their physical therapy regimen is following.On a different note, high ankle sprains, it’s imperative to look at your xrays with good scrutiny.It’s also important to look at the mri so that you can see.If there’s a ligament tear to the ligaments.

That hold the tibia and the fibula together, it’s almost always a surgical situation where you have to screw the bones back together, so that the ligament can heal itself.It’s important to remember that the ligaments in our ankle are there to create a healthy and stable environment for the foot to support us on.If those ligaments are not functioning the right way, what will happen is the ankle will continually start to turn, and they’ll get repetitive sprains.The more repetitive a sprain, the more problems the patient will have in the future.

That can lead to a ligament that does not heal, that can lead to a situation where the patient will step on something as small as a pebble on the road, and their ankle will overturn.That can become a situation which can, again, lead to a surgical problem.The time spent in physical therapy is dependent on the phases that you’re in.Acute phase usually takes about four to seven days.The middle phase, the recovery of range of motion phase, could take from seven days to about two to three weeks,.

Depending on what type of tear or disruption they may have.To recover to full activity could be anywhere from seven days up to about four to six weeks.Goals following an ankle sprain are, primarily, rest, ice, compression, elevation.Rest the injury, mobilize it so it has a proper healing environment.Ice helps decrease the inflammation.Compression will help decrease the swelling.Elevation also helps decrease the swelling, decreases the amount of blood flow to that area.The intermediate phase, then, would be to restore range of motion, start proprioceptive basic strengthening exercises,.

Then, the last phase would be to sportspecific or workspecific goals, as far as, what to they need to do, do the need to climb ladders do they need to go back to running activities or are they more sedentary proprioception is the body’s ability to realize where it is in space, and how to react to the forces, uneven surfaces.Your foot hits the ground, and it’s an uneven surface.So it has to know where it is, then it has to fire the appropriate muscles to respond to that uneven surface.

If we were in a general environment where there’s no clutter or uneven surfaces, it probably wouldn’t be important, but it’s not an ideal environment.These people are working in steel rooms, stepping over steel structures, stepping in ditches.We really need to strengthen them and prepare them to get back into their activity.First thing we’re gonna do is warm up your ankle.Things stretch better when they’re warmed up.We’re gonna do ankle pumps, up and down.You’re gonna do 30 to 50 reps at home.You’re gonna open your legs up a little bit,.

Then you’re gonna go in and out.We start with a warmup, simply, just ankle pumps in all different planes.From there, i usually like to do a towel stretch, where we pull the foot into a dorsiflex position, or pull the foot up towards the shin.From there, i like to get the patients on their feet.We do that same stretch in a standing position.We go into the strengthening phase, i start with singleleg balance, move to the opposite leg in different planes, to throw themself off balance.

That gives them some proprioceptive response, and it also gives them some strengthening in a standing, more functional plane, versus having them do something on a table.From there, i will go into a lunge matrix, where they’re lunging at different angles, and that will give them their deceleration and explosion in a different direction.Sports athletes and industrial athletes, i treat, basically, the same.The only difference is the sports athlete has more of an explosiontype, tied to fiber, so we need to train them in that quick explosiontype mechanism also.

We’ll get their flexibility and everything back to a certain point, then we have to take them to that next level.They need that quick reaction time.Recurring ankle sprains are more common when they do not followthrough with rehab.It’s when they have a plantarflexed foot, or they don’t regain their full range of motion, the ankle is what they call, in a loosepack position.So anytime they step on an uneven surface, the ankle will roll to the weakest point, and it will rollover to that sprain.If they regain their full range of motion,.

The ankle structure is able to lock up, and it’s more stable and you’re less likely to have a recurring ankle sprain.I always tell my patients, it’s not that i’m treating your ankle sprain, i’m trying to prevent a recurrence.Ninetyfive percent of how well the patient does is what they do with their home exercise program.I only see the patient two, three times a week, for maybe, a half an hour to an hour session.They’re with themselves 247.The immobilization phase, the resting position for their foot is hanging down,.

So the back structures of their leg get tight.Just the resting phase of what we put them in, creates a contracture of the ankle.It’s very important, since they’re in that position 78 of their day, that they do their home exercise program to counter the effects of that immobilization.Seeing me two, three times a week isn’t gonna do it.The exercise program started the first time they come into the office, and we assess the success of that home exercise program each time they come in.After an ankle sprain,.

Physical therapy is very important.You have to remember to be consistent with that home exercise program.It’s the home exercise program that will help you return faster to the activities you enjoy.Those exercises focus on range of motion, strength, and proprioception, your body’s ability to balance and stabilize.Whether you have to get back to sports, or work, or even just leisure activities, it’s important to continue working on that ankle strength and stability.Normal ankle function is essential to any weightbearing activity that you do.At coordinated health, we work as a team.
