About ankle injuries

Ankle injuries are relatively common and can be the result of slips and trips, sports injuries and a variety of workplace accidents. The most common form of injury is a strain or sprain, with an estimated 5,000 Britons spraining an ankle every day. This usually occurs when a ligament or muscle fibre stretches beyond its limit and tears, causing pain, swelling, bruising and restricted movement.

Sprains and fractures

Ankle sprains can improve following a recovery period, the length of which will vary depending on the extent of the damage. People with minor sprains are usually able to resume their day-to-day activities within three weeks. 

Ankle fractures can be more serious and sufferers may require weeks to properly recover.
