Ray Falade 25 April 2010 Extra Credit Soap Note Ankle Soap note Subjective: Josiah Andrews was contesting for a rebound. When he grabbed the ball he landed directly on someone’s foot and his ankle forced into an inversion resulting in an inverted ankle sprain on the left leg. As far as we know this is the first time that he has had an ankle injury on his left leg. However he did strain his calf on the same leg two seasons ago Objective: Upon looking at Andrews leg there were some obvious swelling, slight ecchymosis, and the athlete would not let us touch his leg all too much, indicating that he was in pain whenever we palpated his ankle. Upon performing the anterior drawer, we saw that the TFL (talo-fibular ligament) was indeed damaged. Patient NWB although there were times he did try to walk on his own, however it was a no go. Assessment: As stated earlier injury to patient was left ankle TFL sprain; possibly a 2 nd to 3 rd ankle sprain. Plan: The obvious immediate action taken was RICE (Rest, Ice, Compress, Elevate).
