Knee pain is a common complaint among the general population who actively engages in physical activity. Not only in the active population, the elderly age group also seems to be vulnerable to various knee related symptoms and pain has shown to be one of the major contributors to the wide array of such complaints.
Although it can be a sports injury, an ankle sprain often happens while walking on uneven surfaces. Usually, the foot twists inward and the outer area of the ankle is sprained. This causes pressure or possibly tearing of the outer ligaments that support the ankle joint.
