Ankle Injuries

Ankle injuries are the result of some form of trauma. The ankle joint is formed by 3 bones, the tibia (the medial part of the ankle), the fibula (the lateral/outer part of the ankle), and the talus (the foot part). The tibia, fibula, or both can be broken/fractured. Ankle injuries can involve ligament injuries (sprain), most likely of the anterior talofibular ligament (ATFL), the ligament connecting the fibula and the talus, is injured. In a high ankle sprain the anterior inferior tibiofibular ligament (AITFL) is injured.
