Ankle sprain: Tears of the anterior talofibular ligament and an ankle effusion are indications of an ankle sprain. The effusion can often extend into the flexor hallucis longus tendon sheath. Most ankle sprains will heal with rest, ice, compression and elevation. Some patients will have persistent pain and may need further evaluation.
