Ankle sprain is very common. In France, its daily incidence is estimated at 6000. It often causes pain, a temporary period of disability and can results in recurrence and chronic ankle instability. Therefore, an early management and follow up treatment is necessary. Now, functional treatment is clinically the treatment strategy of choice for ankle sprain. It is based on rest, ice, compression, elevation and can use a functional support (like an ankle brace). To evaluate gravity and improve management, a clinical assessment delayed between 4 and 5 days post injury is necessary.

Replacement of the ANKLE JOINT.
Fractures of any of the bones of the ANKLE.
The articulations extending from the ANKLE distally to the TOES. These include the ANKLE JOINT; TARSAL JOINTS; METATARSOPHALANGEAL JOINT; and TOE JOINT.
Entrapment of the distal branches of the posterior TIBIAL NERVE (which divides into the medial plantar, lateral plantar, and calcanial nerves) in the tarsal tunnel, which lies posterior to the internal malleolus and beneath the retinaculum of the flexor muscles of the foot. Symptoms include ankle pain radiating into the foot which tends to be aggravated by walking. Examination may reveal Tinel's sign (radiating pain following nerve percussion) over the tibial nerve at the ankle, weakness and atrophy of the small foot muscles, or loss of sensation in the foot.
