The ankle joint (articulatio talocruralis) is wrapped in medial and lateral ligaments. The joint covers a relatively small area for the amount of load it takes on from walking, running, and jumping. Sprains tend to occur as a result of stepping or falling with all one’s weight on the outer (or more rarely the inner) side of your foot. If this leads to the stretching, partial, or complete rupturing of ligaments, that would be considered a sprain. Sprains most often affect the lateral ligaments, and they can be either partially or completely torn. Complete ligament tears lead to instability and disrupted mechanics in the joint. The condition is associated with severe pain, swelling, and an inability to stand on the respective foot. The symptoms may vary in intensity, depending on the severity of the sprain.
Treatment also depends on the severity of the sprain – in the case of stretching or partial tearing, treatment includes rest, icing, keeping the leg raised, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). In cases of partial tearing, the treating orthopedist may recommend crutches and a removable brace for 2 to 6 weeks. In case of complete ligament tears, surgical treatment is necessary.
