Lateral ankle sprains account for 85% of all ankle sprains. This common injury is most frequently sustained during sporting activity. The ATFL is the weakest of the lateral ankle ligament complex, and is most frequently injured. Ankle sprains are often undertreated, resulting in chronic pain, muscular weakness, and instability. The consequence of this common injury for professional sports clubs is days lost in training and matches missed due to injury as well as the cost of rehabilitation. In the UK, an estimated 302,000 ankle sprains are seen each year in Accident and Emergency Departments.

Abstract

Lateral ankle sprains account for 85% of all ankle sprains. This common injury is most frequently sustained during sporting activity. The ATFL is the weakest of the lateral ankle ligament complex, and is most frequently injured. Ankle sprains are often undertreated, resulting in chronic pain, muscular weakness, and instability. The consequence of this common injury for professional sports clubs is days lost in training and matches missed due to injury as well as the cost of rehabilitation. In the UK, an estimated 302,000 ankle sprains are seen each year in Accident and Emergency Departments.
