What Are Ankle Injuries?

Ankle Ligaments are strong, stretchy bands of connective tissue, which is mostly made up of collagen. Since connective tissue has a low vascularization and as a result, doesn’t get much blood flow, injuring your ankle can lead to torn ligaments in ankle which can take a long time to heal.

Ankle ligaments become injured when they are stretched beyond their normal range. This usually occurs after your ankle twists inward or outward suddenly, generating a sprained ankle. Stepping or jumping over an uneven surface can also sprain your ankle.

There is some degree of ligament damage in all ankle sprains, but they can be classified in three different levels depending on how severe the injury is.

  • Level I: ankle ligaments become partially stretched, and only micro-tears appear on the tissue.

  • Level II: these injuries cause a partial tear in one of the ankle’s ligaments. They are also characterized by an abnormal degree of laxity in the ligaments.

  • Level III: these are the worst possible ankle sprains. These injuries involve a completely torn ligament in the ankle. The avulsion of the ligament and/or ankle fractures can also occur. These injuries are very severe and usually require some sort of  treatment. Most of the time up until the resent technology, invasive surgery was the only option for repair. 

The treatment for the torn ligaments in ankle sprains can vary greatly depending on the severity of the injury.

After the initial trauma, it’s always a good idea to apply ice and compression to the ankle while you make your way to the doctor, they will get necessary imaging tests to determine the grade of your sprain, the exact location of the ligament tears, and the type of treatment you will need to follow.

 

Almost all ankle sprains can be treated without surgery with a combination of rest, immobilization and rehabilitation exercises. However, fully torn ligaments in ankle sprains tend to require surgical interventence.
