Ankle & Foot Splints

  • There are around 2.2 million ankle sprains in India every year, i.e. the equivalent of     60,000 per day.
  • In 20% of cases, a sprain causes residual effects, instability or chronic pain.
  • A mild sprain is caused by stretching of the ligaments, a moderate sprain by     elongation of the ligaments and a severe sprain by partial or total tearing of the     ligaments.
  • 99% of isolated ankle sprains involve stretching, elongation or tearing of the lateral     collateral ligament (LCL).
  • Initial treatment from DO to D2 to D3, is based on the RICE protocol :
  • R... Rest
  • I.... Ice
  • C... Compression
  • E... Elevation
