What Causes An Ankle Sprain?

What Causes An Ankle Sprain?

An ankle sprain refers to the injury to the soft tissues, usually the ligaments, of the ankle when it turns in during physical activity. As you know, the ankle sprain is that familiar sports injury that usually results from twisting your ankle – maybe from coming down from a jump incorrectly, planting your foot in the wrong spot during a cut or just from losing your footing while running.

There’s often that moment when you wonder whether you just harmlessly rolled your ankle or truly sprained it. The prolonged pain as you keep moving gives you the answer you weren’t looking for.
