About the condition
The ankle is most commonly sprained by what is called an “inversion” injury, which means the ankle has rolled over and outwards. This strains the lateral (outside) ligaments of the ankle and the Inferior TibFib joint. The reverse injury an “eversion” strain is less common and involves a greater force that pushes the ankle inwards. This strains the medial (inside) ligament.
Inferior Tib- Fib joint
Reccurence of ankle sprains is common if specific balance training is not carried out
