Have you ever had a sprained ankle…..yeah you probably have. They SUCK, I’ve had six I’m surprised my ankles haven’t just fallen off yet. Anyone is at risk for an ankle sprain but especially athletes. I played basketball for 15 years and it wasn’t until high school that I started experiencing ankle sprains so bad. I’ve always heard from a bunch of people that once you sprain your ankle it just keeps happening. They were not joking. So I always wonder why are ankle so fragile. I get that there are a lot of little tiny bones and tendons in there but why doesn’t this happen with any other part of your body.
This article proves my point exactly about ankle sprains they are so common among all sports. Guys and girls get them equally. I think that these are the most common injuries because there are all different types of ankle sprains. Ankle sprains occur the most because besides the finger and toes those are where the smallest bones are.
