Ankle dislocation is almost always accompanied by sprain or fracture. When ankle dislocations occur, adjacent bones in the joints move to places where they no longer touch each other. During ankle dislocation, the skeleton of the ankle, including fibula, tibia and talus, ligaments and soft tissue surrounding the dislocated bone, including tendons, muscles, nerves and blood vessels, will be affected.
