Recurrent Ankle Sprain Treatment Shelbyville TN

This exercise will help to maintain a good range of motion in your ankle joint, especially if you have sprained it before. An ankle sprain results in the development of scar tissue, which forms haphazardly and can cause the ankle to become tight and have a decreased range of motion.
