Ankle sprain
An  ankle sprain is an injury that causes a stretch or tear of one or more  ligaments in the ankle joint. Ligaments are strong bands of tissue that  connect bones at the joint.
Sprains may be graded I, II, or III depending on their severity:
grade I sprain: pain with minimal damage to the ligaments
grade II sprain: more ligament damage and mild looseness of the joint
grade III sprain: complete tearing of the ligament and the joint is very loose or unstable.
Sometimes sprains are just classified as mild or severe, depending on the amount of ligament damage.
There  are many ligaments in the ankle. The most common type of sprain  involves the ligaments on the outside part of the ankle (lateral ankle  sprain). Ligaments on the inside of the ankle may also be injured  (medial ankle sprain) as well as ligaments that are high and in the  middle of the ankle (high ankle sprains).
