Ankle Sprains
A Sprained Ankle is one of the most common injuries in both athletes and non-athletes and occurs due to stepping onto an uneven surface or stepping down on an angle onto the ankle.  A sprain occurs when the ligaments of the ankle become stretched past their normal range of motion.

Ankle Sprains are divided into three categories depending upon the severity:

  • Grade 1 sprain: Slight stretching and some damage to the fibers of the ligament.
  • Grade 2 sprain: Partial tearing of the ligament.
  • Grade 3 sprain: Complete tear of the ligament.

Symptoms of an Ankle Sprain can include:

  • Pain in the ankle
  • Swelling of the ankle
  • Bruising of the ankle
  • Inability to bear weight on the ankle
Ankle Fractures (Broken Ankle)
**If the bone has protruded through the skin, immediately go to an Emergency Room.

The ankle joint consists of the three separate bones: the tibia, the fibula and talus and a fracture is classified by which bone has been affected.  Ankle fractures can occur as a result of direct impact to the ankle such as a car accident or sports injuries.  Also, the application of excessive weight when the ankle is rolled or twisted can cause a fracture.

Symptoms of an Ankle Fracture can include:

  • Pain in the ankle
  • Swelling of the ankle
  • Bruising of the ankle
  • Visible deformity of the ankle
  • Inability to bear weight on the ankle
Achilles Tendon Ruptures
The Achilles Tendon is a strong piece of material that connects the muscles of the calf to the heel bone and allows for control of the ankle and foot.  If the Achilles Tendon becomes overstretched it can become ruptured, either partially or fully.  Most Achilles Tendon injuries occur as a result of a quick change in direction when the foot is planted or a forceful pivot of the foot.

Symptoms of an Achilles Tendon Rupture can include:

  • Hearing or feeling a sudden “pop” at the back of the leg
  • Sudden sharp pain in the leg
  • Swelling at the back of the heel or calf
  • Difficulty walking or bearing weight
  • Difficulty raising the toes
