If you've ever had an ankle sprain, you know how frustrating and debilitating it can be. The pain, discomfort, and lack of mobility can make it difficult to do the things you love, whether it's playing sports or just going for a walk. But did you know that the real issue behind the pain and discomfort is often misunderstood?
Conventional wisdom says that it takes four to six weeks to recover from a grade two ankle sprain. But the truth is, it's not just the ligaments that are causing the problem. The nervous system plays a big role in inhibiting muscle function and causing stiffness, limping, and hesitancy. It's a natural response to protect the injured area, but it can also make things worse by causing inflammation and restricting movement.
That's where neurological soft tissue therapy comes in. At Evo Performance Rehab, we take a different approach to ankle sprain recovery by focusing on the nervous system. By identifying and reeducating the areas where the nervous system is keeping muscles shut down, we can help you regain full range of motion and get back to your favorite activities faster.
One of our clients, a basketball player who had sprained his ankle, came to us limping and on crutches. But after a session of neurological soft tissue therapy, he was able to walk out without any pain or crutches. It's stories like these that show how powerful this approach can be.
