Various ligaments of our body can be moved in a limited way and there are several boundaries which help in providing stability to the joints. If this restricted movement is hampered and ligaments that join the bones of the ankle are pushed beyond a limited extent, then it causes a sprain.
There can be various symptoms of ankle sprain such as firstly the swelling in the affected region takes place due to the inflammation. The blood vessels surrounding the joints can leak due to which the fluid can come out of the tissue region and this will eventually lead to the migration of white blood cells of our body and inflammation takes place.
The ankle sprain can be diagnosed with the help of a physical examination procedure performed by a medical health practitioner or doctors. During this examination, the doctors try to move the ankle joints in order to keep a check on how far you can move your joints.
The doctor may even perform the X-ray in order to rule out the possibility of any bone fracture. And in case the fracture is present, then further MRI scanning is done. It can be done even when there is any serious injurious condition or the damage is severe at the ankle joint (MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging technique through which a strong magnetic field is applied so as to get the detailed images of the different body parts and check any functional or structural abnormality). This MRI scanning will help to predict the seriousness of the injury in a more appropriate manner.
