Ligaments are fibrous, elastic bands of tissue that connect and stabilize the bones. An ankle sprain is a common, painful injury that occurs when one or more of the ankle ligaments is stretched beyond the normal range of motion. Sprains can occur as a result of sudden twisting, turning or rolling movements. 

If you think you have suffered an ankle sprain, schedule an appointment with our foot and ankle specialist, Dr. Paul Maloof, by calling (757) 827-2480.
