Active controlled motion in early rehabilitation improves outcome after ankle fractures: A randomized controlled trial
from Clinical Rehabilitation
Ankle fractures are common with an incidence of up to 187/100,000/year. There is a bimodal distribution with a peak in younger males under 30 years and females over 60 years. Weber’s classification is widely accepted. Non-operative treatment is only possible in no or minimal (<2 mm) displaced stable fractures without concomitant ligamentous injuries. The aim of an operative treatment should be an early functional postoperative treatment in order to start the rehabilitation process as soon as possible.
