As a parent with a child that plays team sports, you've probably got what seems like a hundred things to remember and take care of every day. From practice times to washing socks to learning the rules of the game and everything in between it can be a taunting task.
All preparation and hardwork aside, most parents aren't sure what to do when their child athlete gets their first ankle injury and what the appropriate treatment steps are to take to ensure they don't hurt themselves worse or the injury becomes a recurring one. For this reason, our certified athletic trainers compiled a quick guide for parents to learn all about ankle injuries and how to prevent them from happening in the future.
In the United States, an estimated 25,000 ankle sprains occur every day and are the most common sports related injury in the country – which means the odds of your child getting an ankle injury playing sports is fairly high.
