Ligaments are fibrous, elastic bands of tissue that connect and stabilize the bones. An ankle sprain is a common, painful injury that occurs when one or more of the ankle ligaments is stretched beyond the normal range of motion. Sprains can occur as a result of sudden twisting, turning or rolling movements.

Ankle Pain

Ankle sprains are one of the most common causes of ankle pain.  The pain associated with a sprained ankle can be mild to severe depending on the severity of the injury.  It is important to use RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression & Elevation) as your immediate first aid.
