Injury clinic: twisted ankle

Bolton physio Andy Mitchell examines one of football's most common injuries: the twisted ankle

He’s the man who runs onto the battlefield to revive you after a clash of heads with Iron Man.

Equipped with his bag of magic sponges and frostbite spray this unsung hero waves his magic wand over your war wounds, restoring the battered limbs to full strength.

This man is: The physio. And heading up FourFourTwo Performance’s injury clinic is Bolton’s combat medic Andy Mitchell.

As well as patching-up the Trotters’ Premier League stars he’s provided insight on the causes, symptoms and treatment of football’s most common injuries exclusively for you.

The first injury to come under the microscope is the twisted ankle. In this video Mitchell gives you the lowdown on assessing the damage.
