In brief: Causes of sprained ankle

A sprained ankle is often caused by twisting your foot, which makes the ligaments of your ankle stretched over their normal range:
• A fall that causes your ankle to twist
• Walking on irregular surfaces
• Losing your balance with your high heels
• Previous ankle sprain which have already weakened your ligaments
• Participating in sports that require a lot of rolling and twisting, such as basketball, tennis, football, etc.
, which makes you vulnerable to sprain your ankle
