In brief: Chain chain chain.

The hip bone is connected to the knee bone and the knee bone is connected to the ankle bone.
The ankle bone is connected to the toe bone and that is why you have the swelling in your ankle. All are inter connected. if one link de-stabilizes, you can expect another link, further down to do the same. The swelling is the bodies way of stabilizing the increased stress to the joint bellow the hurt knee
