What is an ankle sprain and how can we know its severity in kids?

An ankle sprain is the stretching of one or more ligaments that attach to the bones of the ankle. In severe cases, the ligament is torn. Ligaments are elastic-like bands attached to bones that help move joints.Ankle sprains most often occur on the outside area of the ankle. This means the ankle is twisted inwards. The ankle can also twist outwards. A mild injury is a strained ligament with a little swelling. A severe injury is tearing of the ligament with more swelling.
