Ankle Sprains

Q: I sprained my ankle, but it still hurts. Why is this?

A: This could be for a number of reasons.  First of all, you may actually have a fracture or broken bone, and NOT a sprain.  The only way to know that the injury you suffered was actually a sprain and NOT a fracture is to have x-rays taken.  Ankle injuries can also cause damage to ligaments, tendons, and cartilage, which are structures around the ankle joint.  Returning to activity prematurely after an injury can lead to prolonged or recurrent pain, as can repeat ankle sprains.
