The ankle is the most common site of sprains in the human body. An ankle sprain can happen to anybody at a time when you least expect it. Normally, it occurs after a sudden unnatural twisting of the foot which can tear the ligaments of the ankle. An ankle injury affects every aspect of your daily life, most notably your ability to walk and drive.
The symptoms and sign of ankle sprains may vary depending on the severity. There might be tenderness, bruising, swelling and stiffness. Walking can be painful if the ankle sprain is serious.
A mild ankle sprain may not require a doctor’s attention but if any of the following happen after you twisted your ankle, consult your doctor.
- Uncontrollable pain even after taking medications
- You are unable to walk or cannot walk without severe pain.
- The ankle is swollen beyond normal and is not improving within 5-7 days.
Stop Shin Splints
Physical Therapy for Shin Splints
The shinbone or the tibia is the front surface of the lower leg. This part of the body is under constant stress and strain when we walk, jump and run.
An overuse injury happens when a certain threshold of tolerance is crossed. This is a condition called shin splints. Intense pain occurs on the front, inside, outside and at times, the back of the lower leg. If left untreated, this pain can lead to stress fractures of the tibia. Shin splints occur due to damage and inflammation of the muscle tendons. The pain can be rather unbearable, forcing individuals to take prolonged periods of rest to allow for the inflammation to heal. Physical therapy plays an important role in the treatment of shin splints.
Visit your physical therapist if:
- There is a lingering pain after exercising or physical activity. The pain does not subside after 3-4 days of resting and icing the joint or limb.
- There is a dull pain, which recurs with activity.
- Pain does not resolve with over the counter pain relief medication.
- The lower leg is swollen or shows signs of bruising after activities.

Quick Treatment for Growing Pains
This has been one of the challenging areas for me as a Dad and a Physical Therapist. My daughter, who recently turned 7, seems to come up with these sometimes random, but sometimes not so random leg pains. These pains are generally passed off as “growing pains” and dismissed as a rite of passage. This becomes difficult for me being a guy (solve anything) and a P.T. (solve anything related to the body) to just dismiss. What can I say, I am a solve it kind of guy.
Research “tells us” that the pain is typically going to occur on both sides, usually comes on at night, pain is typically located in the muscles of the shin, calf, thigh, or back of the knee. The pain is not usually in the joints (this one is particularly interesting to me – I’ll explain later). Pain can be mild to severe, the kids feel better in the morning, and no signs of inflammation (that can be seen). This last one is also interesting – children may be moody or tired when experiencing growing pains. Continue reading
