Ankle joint: Injury risks

The ankle joint has a major function for the motion sequence of our feet. If we twist our ankle, the capsule band apparatus can be stretched, partly or completely torn. Beware of own judgements of an injury! The sensation of pain is not a good indicator for ankle injuries since the degree of pain and severeness of an injury do not necessarily correspond. The AGA, Europe’s biggest Specialist Society for Arthroscopy and Joint Surgery, explains common ankle injuries and their medical treatment, gives information on injury risk from malposition and gives useful advice for injury prevention.
