Ankle Sprain

An ankle sprain is a condition where there is an over extension or tearing of ligaments along the lateral "outside" of the ankle joint. Usually caused by trauma to the above mentioned area ie., stepping out of a car or off a curb and "twisting" the ankle inwards. Treatments include air casts, soft casting, and in the worst cases use of crutches for a period of time (1 or 2 weeks).
