Can you tell me if a jogger has stepped in a pothole and sprained his ankle. What systems have suffered damage?
Sprained ankle. A sprained ankle is an injury to the ankle ligaments and tendons surrounding the ankle joint. If a sprained ankle lasts more than a week than it is no longer a sprained ankle.... Need to rule out tears of the ligaments and tendons at that point.
Systems. No systems usually suffer damage . It is usually localized to the ankle and or lower leg and foot .
A & P 101. (A) musculo-skeletal (B) nervous (C) Integumentary (D) Circulatory (E) All of the above.
Sprained ankle. Somebody with a sprained depending the severity of it can tear the ankle ligaments or even suffer a fracture . Evaluation by the proper specialist is advised.
