Ankle fractures result when a direct blow or stress forces the ankle inward or outward past its normal range of motion. This can occur when a jumping or running athlete lands on an uneven surface. It may also occur when the foot is on the ground and the body gets twisted.
Why are ankle injuries so common?
Ankles carry a large portion of the body weight and are often injured, fractured, strained or sprained. Ankle injuries are very common in those who take part in sports.
