By ICIM member Ross Hauser, MD: Chronic ankle sprain and instability treatment

Chronic ankle sprains can be tricky to diagnose and treat. The reason? Ankle instability may not show up after the first acute ankle sprain for up to one year and there is no consensus on how to tell if a patient will have instability in the future. This is made clear by new research in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, which says that a new sports injury is not always an acute one, but one that can be identified as an old chronic injury with an increase in symptoms. This is common sense, if you have chronic ankle sprain, and over the course of a few days swelling, discomfort and pain increases, this is likely being caused by a new injury. One that patients most of the times may not even be aware of. more
