Ankle Sprains

An ankle sprain refers to the tearing of a ligament or ligaments in the ankle. Most people have twisted their ankle at one point in their life, but if your ankle becomes inflamed and painful after you twist it, you may have stretched, torn, or sprained the lateral part of your ankle. This is the most common ankle injury and it can occur with very little physical activity.
