Abstract. Introduction: A sprained ankle is an injury that occurs when you roll, twist or turn your ankle in an awkward way. This can stretch or tear the tough bands of tissue (ligaments) that help hold your ankle bones together. The incidence of training injuries is almost constant for players between the ages of 13 and 19, with the majority of injuries ranging from 1 to 5 injuries per 1,000 hours of training, while younger players have lower incidences. The incidence of injuries during the match tends to increase with age, in all age groups, with an average incidence of about 15 to 20 injuries per 1,000 hours of play in players over 15 years of age. Objective: The aim of this study is to verify the efectiveness of an individualized kinetic program in association with myofascial techniques. Methods: The myofascial techniques used are IASTM (Ergon therapy), dry needling, cupping and kinesiotaping. In this study a 18 years old football player was included. The evaluation was performed by the Biodex (for the muscle strength) and lunge test (for the range of motion). Results: After a month o treatment, our patient improved his strength and range of motion. Conclusion: Studies have shown that these techniques of myofascial release provide a huge effectiveness on the flexibility of the muscles, having even much more efficacy than stretching. Using myofascial techniques, has a much quicker result on the recuperation of the ankle sprain offering a great efficacy on the total recuperation of the pacient.

Key words: manual therapy, rehabilitation, ankle sprain.
