Ankle Adjustments Most Effective in Reducing Pain

A study to determine if adjusting the ankle as a treatment of ankle sprains found this treatment to be superior to ultrasound therapy. Thirty patients, with subacute and chronic grade I and grade II ankle sprains, were divided into two groups. Although both groups showed improvement, statistically significant differences in favor of the adjustment group were noted with respect to reduction in pain, increased ankle range of motion and ankle function.
