Why is the ankle joint easily re-injured after a sprain

The ankle joint is composed of the distal tibia, distal fibula, talus and surrounding ligaments. It is a multidirectional joint and is the closest weight-bearing joint to the ground, so it is easy to be injured. Generally, ankle sprains without fractures are mostly treated conservatively with plaster, braces and elastic bandages fixed for 3 to 4 weeks, and injuries to the ligaments involved in the composition of the ankle joint are easy to be ignored, resulting in laxity and instability of the ankle ligaments after recovery and easy to be injured again.
