Treat ankle sprains immediately
Ankle sprains happen when you roll, twist or turn your ankle in an awkward way. This can stretch or tear the ligaments — the tough bands of tissue that connect your bones to each other.
The most common location for an ankle sprain is on the outside of your ankle. That’s where the ligaments are weakest. People often refer to this type of sprain as “rolling” your ankle.
Most ankle sprains occur during sports or recreational activities. But you don’t have to be playing a sport to injure your ankle. Walking or running on an uneven surface can cause a sprain. So can simply stepping off a curb wrong. Ankle sprains also can occur as a result of trips and falls.
If you have a mild ankle sprain, you may be able to walk on it and put weight on it immediately after injury without too much pain, although you’ll likely have some bruising and swelling around the joint. A moderate or severe sprain will cause more pain and make it difficult or impossible to put weight on your foot without pain because too much damage has been done to the ligaments for them to hold up under weight bearing. Moderate and severe sprains usually require at least some period of immobilization to heal properly.
Sprains can range from mild, moderate to severe, depending on the extent of damage to the ligaments. In general, the more ligament fibers that are torn, the worse the sprain. Most ankle sprains are mild or moderate. But even a relatively mild sprain can cause significant pain and swelling and may make it difficult to put weight on your foot. A moderate or severe sprain can cause much more pain, swelling and bruising, as well as joint instability.
There are three grades of sprains:
Grade I: This is a mild sprain. The ligaments are stretched, but there are no partial or complete tears.
Grade II: This is a moderate sprain. Some of the ligament fibers are torn, but the ligament is not completely ruptured.
Grade III: This is a severe sprain. The ligament is completely torn, making the joint unstable.
If you have a mild ankle sprain, you can treat it at home with the RICE method:
Rest: Avoid activity that aggravates your pain.
Ice: Apply ice to the injured area for 20 minutes at a time, several times a day.
Compression: Use an elastic compression bandage or ankle brace to help reduce swelling. Be careful not to wrap it too tightly, as this can cause additional swelling.
Elevation: Raise the injured ankle above the level of your heart to help reduce swelling.
If you have a moderate or severe ankle sprain, you’ll likely need to see a doctor. He or she may recommend that you wear an ankle brace, splint or cast to immobilize your ankle and allow the ligaments to heal. In some cases, surgery may be necessary to repair a torn ligament.
After the initial period of immobilization, you’ll likely need to do physical therapy exercises to regain range of motion and strength in your ankle and leg. A physical therapist can teach you these exercises.
