Ankle sprains occur when the ligaments that connect bone to bone are stretched too far, causing inflammation and sometimes tears. These injuries most commonly affect the ligaments on the outside of the ankle when a person's foot rolls too far inward. This injury is called a "lateral ankle sprain." This can happen while walking on uneven surfaces, stepping off a curb, playing sports, or during a fall.
