What Is an Ankle Sprain?

Ligaments are strong, flexible bands of tissue that connect bones at the joints. This video discusses how a sprain can damage the ligaments of the ankle.

Orthopedic doctors frequently see patients with ankle sprains. This type of injury is common in sports, as athletes can easily roll their ankles when running, jumping, or suddenly stopping. However, an ankle sprain can happen as easily from tripping over a child’s toy or a sleeping pet. No matter the cause, a sprain can tear one or more of the ligaments that hold the bones of the ankle in place. The visible signs of a sprain include bruising and swelling. Pain is common as well.
