About the problem
The ankle is most frequently sprained with what is called an " inversion” injury, this means the rearfoot has folded over and outwards. This stresses the horizontal (outside) ligaments of the ankle joint and the Substandard TibFib joint. The invert injury an " eversion” strain is much less common and involves a larger force that pushes the ankle inwards. This stresses the inside (inside) plantar fascia.
