Sprains - The stretching or tearing of the ligaments which connect bone to bone in the ankle, usually caused by the inward twisting of the foot. Sprains can range from mild to severe, depending on how badly the ligaments are torn. Complete ligament tears are severe sprains.
Strains - An inflammation of the tendons that connect muscles to the bones and is usually the result of overuse. Pain or swelling typically occurs. If untreated a strain can develop into tendonitis by the tendons pulling apart.
Tendonitis - An inflammation or slight tearing of the tendons, usually caused by stress or overuse of the tendons. Pain, swelling, inflammation and irritation are the most common symptoms. Achilles tendonitis is most common.
Achilles Rupture - Complete tear, rupture or "pop" of the Achilles tendon, usually occurring from overuse or a sudden motion such as jumping, climbing stairs or sprinting.
