The sprain occurs when we tear the deltoid ligament on the inside or our ankle. These sprains are more rare for 2 reasons;

  1. The bone on the outside of your shin prevents the ankle from moving too far.
  2. The ligaments on the inside of the ankle are stronger than the ligaments on the outside of the ankle.

Treatment

  1. Rice/Police

  3. Stretch; evert ankle
