A human foot & ankle is a strong, mechanical structure that contains 26 bones, 33 joints, 107 ligaments and 19 muscles

Treatment and prevention

There are four key reasons why an ankle sprain should be promptly evaluated and treated by a foot and ankle surgeon:
An untreated ankle sprain may lead to chronic ankle instability, a condition marked by persistent discomfort and a “giving way” of the ankle. Weakness in the leg may also develop.

A more severe ankle injury may have occurred along with the sprain. This might include a serious bone fracture that, if left untreated, could lead to troubling complications.

An ankle sprain may be accompanied by a foot injury that causes discomfort but has gone unnoticed thus far.

Rehabilitation of a sprained ankle needs to begin right away. If rehabilitation is delayed, the injury may be less likely to heal properly.
