An ankle sprain is an injury to the ligaments, a band of tissues that are strong and elastic. The ligaments are responsible for keeping the bones connected and joints steady in the ankle.
An injury may occur when you accidentally twist or turn your ankle in an awkward manner. Ankle sprains may result from falls, sports such as football and basketball, or from walking on uneven ground.
Practice R.I.C.E. to relieve pain and reduce swelling following an ankle sprain.
Consult a doctor immediately for treatment and to rule out any serious injuries.
Please take the painkillers that are prescribed by your doctor if you experience any pain or discomfort.
You are advised to contact your doctor if the pain persists or worsens.
