Treating Ankle Sprains
Ankle sprains are common. In fact, they account for up to 25% of sports injuries. You don’t need to be an athlete, however, to sprain an ankle. It can happen just participating in everyday activities or even wearing the wrong shoes. A simple roll of the ankle in a heeled shoe or walking on uneven ground can be enough to sprain an ankle.
