Do your ankles hurt anytime you walk? Are they worse
first step in the morning? Maybe you have a history
of ankle sprains or even broken ankles. Have you
been told you have ankle arthritis? Have you been
told you need surgery or might even need your ankles
fused? This condition is not that abnormal. In fact,
many people are often not given many options for
pain in the ankles all the time (chronic ankle
What is an ankle sprain?
The bones of the ankle are stabilized by rope-like
structures called ligaments. There are four main
ligaments around the ankle. One group of three
ligaments is located on the outer (lateral) side of
the ankle. It is called the lateral ligament
complex. The other ligament is located on the inner
(medial) side of the ankle. It is a thick ligament
called the deltoid ligament. An ankle sprain is a
stretching or tearing of these ligaments. Ankle
sprains are relatively common, and lateral ankle
sprains are more common than medial ankle sprains.
What does an ankle sprain feel like?
At the time of the injury, there may be a cracking
or tearing sound. Mild to severe pain usually
follows rapidly, followed by swelling and, in severe
cases, inability to weight-bear. Often there is
discoloration or bruising around the injured area.
The ability to move the ankle through its normal
range of motion may be limited by swelling and pain.
When these ligaments are stretched or torn, the
ankle may become unstable, and movement of the ankle
joint becomes less controlled.
How are ankle sprains detected?
The assessment of an ankle sprain requires an
accurate determination of the events that surrounded
the injury and a physical examination of the injured
ankle, including special tests of the ligaments. In
more severe cases where swelling is excessive, the
injured ankle may need to be evaluated again at a
later date in order to adequately assess the
integrity of the ankle ligaments. Ankle sprains may
be classified into one of three categories: Grade 1,
Grade 2, and Grade 3. Grade 1 ankle sprains involve
stretching of the ankle ligaments. Grade 2 ankle
sprains involve stretching and partial tearing of
the ligaments. Finally, Grade 3 ankle sprains, the
most severe, involve complete tearing of the
Can an ankle sprain be detected on
Damage to the ankle ligaments cannot be seen on
x-rays. However, x-rays may be required to ensure
that a fracture (broken bone) has not occurred.
Other diagnostic tests, such as bone scans, CT scans
or MRI's, are not usually required in the majority
of ankle sprains.
How are ankle sprains treated?
The treatment of an ankle sprain depends on the
severity of the injury. Each treatment plan should
be individualized. Initially protection (by use of
crutches and/or a brace), rest, ice, compression and
elevation (PRICE) of the injured ankle will help
reduce pain and/or swelling. Medications may also be
required to help reduce pain and swelling.
After an ankle sprain the long-term goal is to
return the individual back to their previous level
of activity. Achieving this goal will depend on the
function and stability of the ankle. A general
rehabilitation program, which includes strengthening
exercises, flexibility exercises, aerobic
conditioning, technique refinement and
proprioceptive (biofeedback) retraining, is the most
important factor in improving ankle function and
stability. Stability may be improved by an ankle
