Ankle sprain is a very common disease among all soft tissues injuries. Most people will experience it repeatedly if not properly treated on the first time, as known as Chronic Ankle Instability. It is a misconception that most people think that ankle sprain does not need to be treated. Our ankle depends on various ligaments to provide a firm support. When our ankle is sprained, some ligament will be partially tear, some might get completely tear or even have bone fracture if in some serious case. So, why some will experience chronic ankle instability? According to studies, a torn or injured ligament will have a higher tendency to get injured again and the odds are between 40%-70%, repetitive ankle sprained will cause the ligaments laxity and weak, just like a loose rubber band after being pulled several times, thus those who does not recovered from the first ankle sprain will experience it again and again.
