A high ankle sprain occurs when the ligaments above and around the ankle (see image below) get damaged or over-stretched. High ankle sprains are more serious than other ankle sprains because these specific ligaments hold the two lower bones of the shin together.

A high ankle sprain is an injury that involves a different set of ligaments than in the common ankle sprain. These ligaments are located above the ankle joint and between the tibia and fibula. They form what is known as the syndesmosis (pronounced “SIN-des-MO-sis”).

Low ankle sprains are the most common type of ankle sprain. They happen when you rotate or twist your ankle toward the inside of your leg, which causes the ligaments on the outside of your ankle to tear or stretch. High ankle sprains can happen when you have a fractured ankle bone.
