The ankle is a weight-bearing joint where three bones meet i.e. the tibia and fibula of the lower leg and the talus of the foot, which sits on top of the heel bone. The ankle is a complicated joint and it is commonly injured. An Ankle Injury is an injury to the ligament and ligaments are strong band-like structures around joints, which attach bones together and support the joints. An Ankle Injury can take place by when it is over-stretched during a sudden pull and the ligaments at the side of the ankle are the ones most commonly sprained. Ankle Injuries/Sprains causes inflammation, swelling and bleeding around the ankle and moving of the joint is painful. An ankle injury is treated with rest, ice, compression and elevation. That is to say, for the first 48 hours, an Orthopedic advises to treat the sprained ankle by way of the above treatment. However, in a severe injury, the Orthopedic recommends Physiotherapy to get the ankle joint back to a full range of movement and improve the strength of the surrounding muscles. Although an ankle injury can take several weeks to heal, it is always advised to take proper rest. Since Ankle Injuries are common, particularly, in those involved in running sports or any other outdoor activity, most injuries result from a sudden twist of the ankle.
