Ankle sprain is a very common sports injury, and even some friends may have a foot wart when they walk normally. After the ankle sprain, the first reaction of many people is to move the ankle first. People won’t pay much attention if there is no pain or only slight pain. Some people think that the twisted ankle is just a small injury, and it is good to apply can be healed with a bandage.
So, what is Ankle sprain? And how should we view and deal with the “little thing” of stinging the foot?
Let’s start with talking about children’s ankle sprain.
If a child often suffers from ankle sprain, as a parent and guardian, the first thing to consider is the child’s arch development. Children’s foot arches gradually form after the fat layer degenerates. If the child’s foot is underdeveloped, it is likely to lead to insufficient arch strength. When walking, the center of gravity cannot be placed on the center of the sole but is concentrated on the sole, which leads to an increased probability of crooked feet.
Also children are prone to cramps, which may also be caused by uncomfortable shoes. If the sole is too soft or the upper is too low, the stability of the ankle will deteriorate, and there will be no support and protection. If the foot is unstable, it may cause an ankle sprain.
Another reason is that ankle sprain may also be a manifestation of calcium deficiency. It is necessary to pay attention to nutrition, supplement calcium-containing foods appropriately, and treat with calcium-supplementing if necessary.
Many adults also suffer from an ankle sprain. What is the reason for this? Here, we mainly analyze from three aspects.
1. It may be caused by the shoes. Patients who often wear high-heeled shoes, will cause instability of the feet. It is very easy to produce ankle sprains while walking.
2. It may be caused by insufficient muscle strength around the ankle joint. For example, office workers or the elderly, who has long-term inactivity and lack of exercise may cause insufficient muscle strength in the above-mentioned parts. In the process of walking, you may be prone to sprains
3. It may be caused by an old injury. For example, after an ankle sprain occurred, it was not treated in time and properly. It may lead to the relaxation of the ligament in this part, or directly cause the instability of the joint. In the following period of time, it may cause a repeated ankle sprain.
After the ankle sprain, the joint is painful, and you may think that’s it. Most of the sprained feet are located in the ankle varus position. When the sprained place is in the varus position, the ligament that is injured on the lateral side will be pulled instantly, causing severe pain.
In order to relieve pain, the human body will unconsciously perform compensatory movements, and subconsciously use the inside of the foot to land on the ground to increase the ankle valgus angle, reduce the traction on the injured ligament, and relieve pain. However, such a gait will increase the ankle valgus angle, and gradually change and form a wrong lower limb force line in the later stage.
Ankle pain is relieved, but it also brings calf and thigh muscle pain, knee joint discomfort, and waist muscle tightness.
So don’t underestimate ankle sprain. Foot health is closely related to our entire body. We should pay attention to foot health, find problems in time and go to professional places for recovery and treatment to ensure the correct lower limb strength line.
