Lateral ankle sprain is a common musculoskeletal injury that frequently results in prolonged pain and disability. The amount of research evidence related to lateral ankle sprain is ever increasing, making it difficult to keep up with the latest research and apply it to your practice. This second part of a two-part course will discuss recommendations for intervention based on the 2021 Academy of Orthopaedic Physical Therapy's clinical practice guidelines. Specific manual therapy skills, exercise dosage ideas, and case scenarios will help you transfer knowledge and skills directly from the screen to your practice.

1. Prevention

It’s said that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. In this chapter, learn to analyze lateral ankle sprains according to the disease prevention model. The chapter will include specific interventions that correspond to preventing lateral ankle sprains so you can choose the right intervention at the right time for the right patient.

2. Manual Therapy

Hands-on treatments are very common in physical therapy and may be appropriately applied to people with lateral ankle sprains to reduce symptoms, improve range of motion, and increase function. The purpose of this chapter is to describe the research evidence and guideline-informed applications of specific manual physical therapy interventions.

3. Exercise

Physical therapists, as human movement specialists, use exercise and activity as their chief form of intervention. This chapter will review therapeutic exercise applications for people with lateral ankle sprains. You will use the information from this chapter to plan, progress, and regress a therapeutic exercise program for people with lateral ankle sprains for the best possible outcomes.

4. Process, Pitfalls, and Pearls
