An ankle sprain occurs when the ankle slips or twists in an unexpected way. It can cause pain, swelling, and the person may feel uncomfortable while walking (limited range of motion) due to the tear in the ligaments that help the ankles to hold the bone. It will get better by taking rest, giving ice packs, and taking pain relievers.
