Abstract
Studies on the prevalence and service utilization pattern of ankle sprain in sports have mostly emerged from developed countries. However similar studies are lacking in Indian context. Punjab is a state in India that is known for its sporting talent and sports culture. Investigators could not locate any study on the prevalence of ankle sprain among players of Punjab. Such studies are required to sensitize the community about the problem and to plan intervention. Keeping this in mind the present study was undertaken with the aim to study the prevalence of ankle sprain and service utilization among players of Punjab.
The point, 12 month and life-time prevalence of ankle sprain was 8.29%, 42.93% and 71.70% respectively. 82.35% players with current ankle sprain had sustained ankle sprain on previous occasions also. 58.82% ankle injured players did not seek professional help. Previous ankle sprain, reduced ankle range of motion, weak planter flexor and evertor muscles along with balance deficits were significantly associated with the occurrence of ankle sprain. The treatment provided to the players was tilted towards the use of medicines, ice application and taping/bandaging. The component of exercise therapy was found lacking in the management programme.
Considering the high rate of recurrence it is imperative that the players and coaches are educated about the importance of complete phase wise management of ankle sprain.

Key words: Ankle sprain Prevalence Exercise therapy Service utilization
