Ankle Sprain

05-Agosto-2014Overview

The ankle joint, which connects the foot with the lower leg, is injured often. An unnatural twisting motion can happen when the foot is planted awkwardly, when the ground is uneven, or when an unusual amount of force is applied to the joint.

What Causes Ankle Injuries?

04-Agosto-2014Discover the Answer

An ankle injury occurs when the ankle joint is twisted too far out of its normal position. Most ankle injuries occur either during sports activities or while walking on an uneven surface that forces the foot and ankle into an unnatural position.

To reduce pain and swelling:

  • Sit with your foot elevated higher than your knee at least 4 times a day.
  • Apply an ice pack 20 minutes of every hour you are awake for the first 2 days.
  • After 2 days, use the ice pack for 10 - 20 minutes 3 times a day, as needed.

What Kinds of Ankle Injuries Are There?

03-Agosto-2014Sprains, Strains, and Fractures

Ankle injuries are defined by the kind of tissue -- bone, ligament, or tendon -- that's damaged. The ankle is where three bones meet the tibia and fibula of your lower leg with the talus of your foot. These bones are held together at the ankle joint by ligaments, which are strong elastic bands of connective tissue that keep the bones in place while allowing normal ankle motion. Tendons attach muscles to the bones to do the work of making the ankle and foot move, and help keep the joints stable.
