Sprained Ankle’s are one of the most common musculoskeletal injuries. They can happen to everyone – whether you’re athletic or not.
It occurs when the ankle joint twists either inwards or outwards on landing.
Ankle injuries most commonly occur in sports requiring jumping, turning, twisting, and changing direction type movements. In most cases (80%) of people sprain the ankle by rolling it to the outside – which damages the lateral ligaments. This can easily happen simply by stepping on uneven surfaces and losing your balance.
