WHAT IS AN ANKLE SPRAIN

Ankle sprain is one of the leading causes of ankle pain in the general population and is particularly common in people active in sports and dancing. Most ankle sprains occur after an accidental twisting inversion of the ankle joint. This may injure or tear the outer ankle ligaments (anterior talofibular ligament and posterior talofibular ligament) leading to pain and swelling around the ankle joint. Fortunately, most patients who sustained ankle sprains recover after a few weeks and can continue their usual activities.

The recommended initial ankle sprain treatment in Singapore is RICE therapy (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) and is effective in relieving pain and swelling in most cases and preventing further injuries to the ankle in the first 24-48 hours.
