As Fall is in full swing and winter is quickly approaching, football season and basketball season are upon us. And you can’t have sports without sports’ injuries, right? “One injury, in particular, keeps athletes out for longer periods of time, and that is the high ankle sprain. It is different than a common ankle sprain in that it injures a set of ligaments located above the ankle joint. This area is especially prone to injury because it is exposed to high forces in athletics like running, cutting, and contact, says podiatrist Jamie Settles Carter, DPM.

“The difficult thing is that these high ankle sprains have very little swelling or bruising, making them hard to see with the naked eye. The telltale sign that a high ankle sprain has occurred is when athletes experience pain radiation from the ankle up when performing twisting motions. And this is when you should go see your doctor,” says Dr. Carter.
