"Ankle sprains are a common injury that occurs when the ankle rolls, twists, or turns in an awkward way. When the ankle twists, it can strain, stretch or tear the ligaments that help stabilize the joint. Two of the most common types of sprains are lateral (spraining the outside of the foot), or high ankle sprains. High ankle sprains are more common in athletes, and occur when there is tearing of the ligaments that connect the tibia to the fibula," says Matthew Wagoner, DPM, a podiatrist at Triad Foot Center and a member of the Cone Health Medical Group.

"The first step in treating a sprained ankle is to reduce inflammation and swelling through rest, applying ice, wrapping the injury in an ace bandage, and elevating the ankle. Further treatment depends on the severity of the injury and if the individual is able to bear weight on it. Mild sprains may only take a few days of rest and ice to heal, while others may require immobilization of the ankle through a walking boot or something similar. Ankle sprains very rarely require surgery," says Dr. Wagoner.
