If you find yourself with an ankle sprain and it is situationally difficult to get to a physical therapist, try these ankle rehab exercises for the first few days.
I was fortunate to receive these cheat sheets from my physical therapy friends. I now give these sheets out to Soldiers when they get hurt over the weekend, or when I know they can’t make it to physical therapy any time soon. This would be awesome for when down-range.
Assessment of the injury is important. If Ottawa Ankle Rules are negative and the injury is minor, it may be appropriate to give out this handout for ankle sprain rehab.
