Have you ever rolled your ankle over the weekend? Are you constantly rolling your ankle when walking or playing sport? Have you lost that deadly side-step you use to have?
If so, it might be worthwhile checking in with your ankles and seeing how they’re going.
Ankle sprains are a very common occurrence ranging from the general population to elite athletes. There are 3 main types of ankle sprains.
- Lateral ankle sprain (outside of your ankle).
- Medial ankle sprain (inside of your ankle).
- High ankle sprain (front of ankle and up into lower shin)
Lateral ankle sprains are the most common of the 3 and account for 85% of all ankle sprain injuries. With both medial and high ankle sprains accounting for the remaining 15%.
