Ankle injuries are frequently thought of as sports injuries, but you don’t have to be a collegiate or professional athlete to suffer from an ankle sprain. You don’t even have to be a “weekend warrior” to twist or turn and injure your ankle. That’s right. It can be something as unfortunate as missing a step when walking down a flight of stairs or twisting an ankle while wearing heels on a girls’ night out.
So yes, ankle sprains can happen with daily activities or while playing a pickup game of basketball. Ankle injuries occur daily, and more than 1 million people visit emergency rooms each year for these issues.
