  2. Sometime the quality of research is breathtaking! The effectiveness of any Rx is dependent on making the correct diagnosis in the first instance - this is where the problems in managing ankle ligament injuries arise from. I have lost count of the number of times someone comes in for advice after lateral ankle sprain and informs me that they have been to A&E and had been given an x-ray - but "nothing was broken" and they were advised to go home with some ice and a compression bandage. Two weeks later they still can't weightbear and their lower leg is still the colour purple...

    If anyone in the NHS orthopaedic community with some influence on national triage policy is reading these posts, please, please include an ultrasound scan during your investigations otherwise all the ice in the Arctic won't make any difference if the ligament has been disrupted.
