Athletic Training

regarding treatment of ankle sprain

10/10/2011

Question:

when i apply anti inflammatory gel over the ankle and wrap the crepe bandage, i feel burning sensation and i don`t feel the burning sensation when the area has not been covered by anything and is left open...is it normal...? and should i continue wrapping the crepe bandage all the time or should remove it in between...?

Answer:

Thank you for your question, but I am not sure that I have enough information to provide you appropriate guidance.  Can you provide more specifics as to the gel and the crepe bandage? 

However, I would use caution since you are complaining of a burning sensation that is only present when the wrap is on which could be caused by a variety of factors.
