Jumping/landing or changing direction is the most common reason for rolling an ankle
The main causes of ankle sprains are sudden changes in direction, or jumping and landing awkwardly (often on someone else's foot).
Symptoms people often describe can range from difficulty standing, swelling, and sometimes even bruising.
It is estimated that one third of ankle sprains will be re injured when returning to sport in the first year, and often are more severe when done a following time.
