Sprained Ankles are one of the most common sports injuries. Often caused by uneven terrain, direct trauma, or a sudden pivot causing twisting or turning of the ankle, ankle sprains vary in recovery time.

Once one has occurred, the risk of another is high due to weakness around the joint. A sprain of the medial ankle occurs when there is excessive eversion of the foot.
