Re: Physiotherapist treating repetitive ankle sprain, region Morges

I don't have any names to offer but rather a suggestion on the type of treatment you should go for. Typically if you are having the same type of ankle injury (i.e. rollover sprains etc.) you should be looking at retraining the Proprioceptive system. There are specific exercises that the therapist can work on (mostly around balance).

You tend to loose the proprioceptive reflex system if the ankle has been injured in the past and immobilized for any amount of time (be it a ankle brace, open support cast or full cast). Without the proprioceptive system, every time you are on uneven ground you risk hurting the ankle again. A bit of retraining should really help.

There may of course be other structural issues but at least make sure that the Proprioceptive system is working correctly.
