Thomas San Giovanni, Orthopedic Surgeon, at Miami Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute, says an ankle sprain is one of the most common injuries they see in orthopedics and it is probably the most frequent thing doctors see in the ER, so there are about 25,000 ankle sprains every day.

According to him, there are certain people that may have a predisposition for ankle sprains based on some of their alignment and also some of the desired activities that they have, such as sports.
