A strain is an injury to one of the muscles that connect the lower leg to the foot. It differs from a sprain which is a partial or complete tear to a ligament and not a muscle.
An ankle strain can occur when muscles in the lower leg or ankle are either overstretched or torn and is a condition treated by our team of healthcare professionals.
Ankle strains are categorized as being Grade 1 or mild (excessive stretching), Grade 2 or moderate (partial tear) or Grade 3 which is a severe strain (complete tear).
Treatment for ankle strains are similar to ankle sprain injuries and include RICE or Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation.
