Ankle Sprain is a common injury that occurs when the ligaments surrounding the ankle joint are stretched or torn, often due to an abrupt twisting or rolling motion of the foot. This injury can lead to immediate pain, swelling, bruising, and difficulty bearing weight on the affected ankle. The severity of a sprained ankle can range from mild to severe, with more severe cases potentially involving complete ligament tears. However, most cases are mild and recover within several weeks.
