Ankle sprains are measured in grades. A Grade 1 ankle sprain occurs when the ankle ligament is slightly stretched. With a Grade 2 ankle sprain your ligament is partially torn, and with a Grade 3 ankle sprain your ligament is completely torn. Once you stretch your ankle ligament it will continue to get more and more stretched out with each additional ankle injury, thus increasing the risk of reinjury.
