Even after surgery, athletes are highly susceptible for a second ACL injury and to develop osteoarthritis later in life.
The most common cause of ankle pain is due to an ankle sprain. Sprained ankles occur when the foot exceeds its normal range of motion and as a result, the ligaments in the ankle joint stretch or tear.

Ankle physical therapy helps to regain the range of motion lost after an ankle sprain along with strengthening the muscles, reducing pain, and ultimately helping the patient return to normal activity and sport.
