Summarized by Plex Health
Last Updated: 10 May 2022

Your ankle joint links your foot with your lower leg. Three tendons keep your ankle bones from changing out of place. When one of these tendons is extended too much or torn, a sprained ankle is. Doctors quality ankle sprains by exactly how extreme they are: Mild. Your ankle still feels steady. Anything that stretches your ankle greater than it's used to can hurt a ligament. Certain people are more probable to sprain their ankles. You may additionally go to higher risk if you: Play sporting activities, especially on an indoor court; Have balance issues; Wear high heels or shoes that do not fit well; Have rigid or weak ankle joints, such as due to a previous injury.
