High Ankle Sprain

A high ankle sprain is an injury to the higher ankle ligaments, which are located above the ankle joint . The most common ankle sprain that many of us have had, affects the lower ligaments of the ankle. 

These high ankle ligaments connect your tibia (shin bone) to the fibula (outside leg bone). The injury involves the syndesmosis between the lower tibia and fibula just above the ankle joint. 

Your syndesmosis is a fibrous joint where the two leg bones are connected together by ligaments or connective tissue and usually have very little mobility. 

 High ankle sprains are much less common but are more disabling than your traditional lower ankle sprain.
