Guide to Ankle Sprains
Twist and turn your ankle and you can sprain it.Here's how to know when it might be more serious.
One reason to see a doctor if the symptoms of an ankle sprain persist is the possibility that something else is wrong. For example, the cartilage (the cushioning material covering the ends of bones in joints) in the ankle may be injured. "You can knock off a piece of cartilage when you have a sprain," says Dr. Berkowitz.
