When the ankle is sprained, the injury is to one or more of the ligaments on either side of the ankle. The degree of injury can range from a mild stretching to a partial tear to a complete tear. The degree of injury is usually 1-2-3.

An MRI is not usually indicated in an uncomplicated sprain. Treatments can range from ice, compression elevation and rest all to way to cast boot immobilization. In between treatments can include taping or numerous types of ankle braces.

If the ligaments do not heal properly, the ankle will be somewhat less stable. It is important to allow time for this to occur. It can take as much if not more than 6 weeks. This depends on variables such as age, health, compliance etc.
