About Ankle Sprains

Ankle sprains are very common in sport and everyday activities.  The main mechanism of injury is ‘rolling’ or twisting the ankle when the foot is planted awkwardly.  The structure damaged can vary, however the most common sprains involve the ligaments on the outside of the ankle.
.
Recurrence of ankle sprains is very common following an initial injury.  This due to residual weakness in the surrounding muscles, laxity of the supporting ligaments, altered balance and a change in the brains ability to pre-empt your next move
