Physical therapist management of complicated bilateral ankle sprain: case study and description of clinical reasoning
Journal of Orthopaedic and Sports Physical Therapy
Ankle sprains (AS) are common, disabling, and costly within society. Although evidence for clinical management of isolated AS is becoming better known, many AS coexist with other conditions that contribute to chronic ankle and foot pain. Concomitant AS with bilateral (B) chronic ankle and foot pain suggests the potential for clinically meaningful functional inter-relationships between lower extremity (LE) and trunk structures. The purpose of this case study was to demonstrate clinical reasoning that guided a pragmatic impairment based approach to rehabilitation of an individual with B AS complicated by other conditions associated with ankle and foot pain.
