INTRODUCTION. The sprains are the commonest injury of the ankle. The main symptoms of acute ankle sprains are the pain, the swelling and the restricted range of movement of the ankle. The aim of this study is to evaluate the correlation between ankle edema and the range of movement of the ankle.
MATERIALS-METHODS. Nineteen young people, 14 men and 5 women, 17 to 32 years old, with acute grade I or grade II ankle sprain were evaluated. The treatment was common for all of them. It included intermittent cryotherapy and elevation for the first 3 days, and although bandage and rest for 10 days. The edema, the pain and the passive and active movement, were evaluated on the 1st, 3rd and 10th day following the injury. A tank was used for the pre and post treatment volumetric measurements; the VAScale was used for the evaluation of the pain and an expandable goniometer (Gollehon) for the movement of the ankle.
RESULTS. There was not found significant correlation between volume of ankle edema and active or passive range of movement. It was found correlation between pain and range of movement of the ankle.
