Ankle injuries account for 14% of all sporting injuries. Two thirds of ankle injuries involve the lateral or outside ligament. The remaining third injuries may include fracture,Talar dome damage or sprained syndesmosis. If the pain is ongoing seek medical opinion.

About 40% of ankle sprains reoccur. This maybe due to the disruption of motion and movement sensors. There is good evidence supporting balance or proprioceptive exercises to aid in the prevention of recurrence of injury whereas there is little evidence for Taping so far. Wobble boards exercises commenced when the acute pain has settled may help to prevent ongoing injury.
