What if my child sprains their ankle at a trampoline park? | Bangkok J-CLINIC

Hello, my name is Sato and I run J-CLINIC, a physiotherapy and acupuncture clinic in Bangkok.
Recently, we’ve been receiving many inquiries from parents whose child who got hurt while playing on the trampoline and needed treatment.


Trampolining is a popular sport for both adults and children.



Trampolining is fun—who doesn’t enjoy jumping high and floating in the air? And continuous jumping uses all the muscles in your body and gives you an excellent aerobic workout.


But trampolining can also easily lead to injuries. If you haven’t mastered the basic jumping techniques, you can strain your ankles and knees.

In this article, I’ll talk about common trampoline injuries, how to treat them, and how to prevent them.


Common trampoline injuries


Common injuries from trampolining include


The most common trampoline injury: Sprains

The most common trampoline injury among patients who come to our clinic is sprains.


Many of our clients tell us, “It’s just a sprain, so I thought it would heal if I put a compress on it.” But if you’ve twisted your ankle hard, the ankle ligaments may be torn or partially damaged. So it’s important to receive treatment as soon as possible.



Examination of the sprain: Our doctors or physical therapists will use touch (palpation) to examine your ligaments and tendons for damage.


Treating sprains at J-CLINIC

J-CLINIC will treat your sprains with ultrasound/high-voltage therapy, manual therapy and taping, and give you rehab guidance.

Ultrasound/high-voltage therapy to relieve pain


We’ll relieve your pain with a combination of (1) high-voltage electricity to loosen tension in the superficial muscles and (2) ultrasound to relax the deeper muscles that can’t be reached by hand.


This combination therapy also repairs cells and is one of the most popular forms of care used by professional athletes.

Manual therapy and taping

We use massage to loosen muscle tension around the ankle. Taping then immobilizes the ankle, which will speed up the healing process.




We especially recommend taping for children, as they tend to have a hard time staying off their feet.


Training and self-care guidance

After the pain subsides, we’ll show you exercises to do at home and self-care tips to prevent repeat injuries.


Strengthening your shin and calf muscles to help prevent future sprains. Stand on your toes and then lower your heels. Repeat. If you put a Pilates ball between your knees while doing this exercise, you can strengthen your inner thigh muscles at the same time.



Using a Thera-Band to stretch and strengthen your shin and calf muscles. Like the above exercise, this will help prevent future sprains.



Using massage balls to soften the Achilles tendon. Greater flexibility in your Achilles tendons will increase your ankle’s range of motion and make it harder to sprain your foot.


How to avoid injury on the trampoline

Here are some things you can do to avoid injuries on the trampoline.


Start by practicing to jump straight up.


First aid for sprains

If you suffer a sprain, icing is the first step in first aid. Icing will help you recover quickly.
And remember the basic first aid “RICE”.


If you are at a trampoline park, it might be a good idea to take a lesson with an instructor the first time. Learn how to jump correctly and enjoy trampolining without getting hurt!
