The ankle sprain is an injury to the ligaments of the ankle sprain, strain, stretch or twist. The strain can be caused by a direct blow to the ankle or as a result of a fall, a bad support or a bad move. There are three types of ankle sprain by severity. The first-degree sprain is minor, since the ankle ligaments are not broken, the area is slightly swollen, painful and spills may occur. In this case you can return to physical activity in no time with a taping. In the second degree sprain, there is partial or complete ligament rupture, pain and swelling are older and less movements can be performed with the foot. In the third degree sprain, there is complete rupture of ligaments, the pain is intense, the mobility of the foot is very small and the injury is accompanied by a much larger spill. Therefore, sometimes surgery is required.
