Ankle Sprain

It is a rupture or stretching of the ligaments that surround and tie the leg to the foot when tripping while walking or jogging.
They vary according to the severity of the injury, but generally include: pain, redness, bruising, swelling, or loss of ankle movement.
If you think you have sprained your ankle, do the following:
  • Relax.
  • Use ice inside a bag and fix it on the ankle for a third of an hour.
  • Remove the bag when you feel numbness in the ankle.
  • Press it.
  • Lift the feet higher than the body level, and do not put weight on the ankle.
  • Using safe pain relievers, which do not interfere with your health condition.
  • If the pain and swelling continues, consult your doctor so that he can rule out a fracture.​
