Sore or Weak Ankles

While an ankle sprain usually is caused by the tearing or stretching of the ligaments of the ankle, an ankle strain is caused by the stretching or tearing of muscle or tendon. A tendon is a fibrous cord of tissue that connects muscles to bones.

These strains take place when a muscle is stretched and suddenly contracts, as with running or jumping. This type of injury is frequently seen in runners who strain their hamstrings. Many times the injury will occur suddenly while the runner is in full stride. Symptoms for an acute muscle strain may include pain, muscle spasm, loss of strength, and limited range of motion.

The usual treatments for both a sprain or a strained ankle are the same. Making use of applying ice to your ankle can keep the swelling down and help shrink the blood flow which increases when the muscle or tendon is stretched from an Ankle Strain.

Therapeutic exercise can also help restore strength and flexibility. During these exercise it is usually recommended that you wear an ankle wrap or Ankle Compression Band like our Ankle Band from It will help in your exercise routines to help make it easier to move your ankle the way the therapist instructs you.
