A torn or stretched ankle ligament can occur from simply walking down the street or when playing vigorous sports. The damage can range from mild to severe. A complete tear of the ankle ligament can cause your ankle joint to partially dislocate. This might sound like a pop and can be as painful as an ankle fracture. Immediate medical attention is required to determine the extent of your ankle injury.
