Did you know that during an ankle sprain, the ligaments around the ankles are usually torn from the twisting forces? When the twisting force is too strong, the bone might break during the twist and this is the cause of an ankle fracture.
Dr David Su, orthopaedic surgeon at Gleneagles Hospital, suggests ways we can treat and prevent ankle injuries such as common sprains and dislocated ankles.
If you seek treatment for an ankle injury, consult a specialist.
