Suffering from Ankle Sprain?
A sprained ankle is a common injury that occurs when the ankle ligaments are stretched or torn. Symptoms include pain, swelling, and bruising around the ankle. Treatment includes rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE). Minor ankle sprains can be treated at home, but more severe sprains may require physical therapy.
Ankle sprains are caused by a variety of things such as stepping on an uneven surface, twisting the ankle joint too far, or landing awkwardly from a jump. They can happen to anyone, but are more common in athletes. Prevention tips include stretching regularly before exercise and wearing supportive shoes.
