The ligaments on either side of the ankle do not have anything to do with the toes. There are several ways to determine if ligaments are torn. Most experienced doctors can tell by examination that there is something wrong. Stress xrays can be done. A diagnostic ultrasound or even MRI are more accurate tests.

Discuss your discomfort with your doctor.
