What is a Sprained Ankle?

sprained ankle occurs when your ankle ligaments are overstretched. Ankle sprains vary in

their severity, from mild "twisted ankle" or "rolled ankle" sprain through to severe complete

ligament ruptures, avulsion fractures or broken bones.

What Causes a Sprained Ankle?

Ankle sprains can occur simply by rolling your ankle on some unstable ground. Common

examples of this occur when awkwardly planting your foot when running, landing unbalanced

from a jump or stepping onto an irregular surface.

What are the Symptoms of a Sprained Ankle?

A history of your ankle rolling is the key ingredient to suspecting a sprained ankle. At the

time of the injury, you may hear a popping or cracking sound and will notice swelling,

bruising and ankle pain. Lateral or medial ligament sprains are usually acutely tender

over the injured ligament.

Depending on the severity of your ankle sprain, you may have trouble walking or standing

on your foot.  In these cases, crutches, strapping or a walking boot may be necessary

to help you to mobilise throughout the day.

In more severe cases, there may be sharp pain deep in the ankle joint associated with a

talar dome fracture or pain between your lower shin bones, which may be a syndesmosis or

 high ankle sprain.

How is a Sprained Ankle Diagnosed?

Your physiotherapist is highly skilled in the assessment and diagnosis of ankle sprains.

Your history and a thorough clinical examination will determine the severity of your

sprained ankle.

If required, you may be referred for an X-ray, CT scan or MRI to confirm or exclude specific

ligament or bone injuries.

Which Ankle Ligaments are Commonly Sprained?

Your ankle joint, known as the talocrural joint, is made up of three bones: the tibia (shin bone -

inside ankle bone), fibula (outer lower leg - outside ankle bone) and talus (deep ankle bone).

Underneath the talocrural joint lies the subtalar joint, which is the articulation between the talus

and the calcaneus (heel bone).

Your ankle ligaments attach from bone to bone and passively limit the motion available at each joint.

On the outside of the ankle lie the lateral ligaments, which are the most frequently injured in an

ankle sprain. These include the:

  • anterior talofibular ligament (ATFL)
  • calcaneofibular ligament (CFL)
  • posterior talofibular ligament (PTFL)

The main medial (inside of ankle) ligament is the much stronger deltoid ligament.

High ankle sprains involve the inferior tibiofibular ligament and syndesmosis. These are

more disabling ankle injuries and are often misdiagnosed as the more simple sprained ankle.
