There are over 15,000 ankle sprains per day in America. OSPTA Morgantown strives to prevent and/or lessen the severity and chronicity of ankle injuries for recreational, high school, and collegiate athletes. We offer a preseason musculoskeletal screen to detect biomechanical faults and weaknesses that could lead to ankle injury. We utilize the functional movement screen, proprioceptive training, flexibility, and protective equipment to enhance your ankle injury rehabilitation and decrease reoccurances of ankle injuries. We offer early intervention for ankle sprains because we have recognized that if the treatment is initiated immediately, the long-term results can be improved. Prior to the athlete returning to sport, he or she will be prescribed an advanced intervention program that is aimed at preventing a reoccurrence of injury.
All of our patients are provided with thorough education of anatomy, biomechanics, physiology, and functional movement so that they have a better understanding of the importance of prevention and rehabilitation of ankle injuries.
