Best Answer
The most common ways to break your ankle:Quite easily: There are at least 4 directions it can break from; you step carelessly or land bad etc. and either the outer or inner side of the foot can be broken outward... Or you might fall a flight of stairs and all, breaking it backward or forward, but usually it breaks to the side.

Common causes of breaking an ankle include:

tripping and falling (especially in sports), car accidents (crushing injuries), landing incorrectly after jumping from great heights, twisting your ankle and not resting it, overuse, strong impact of a heavy object.

A fall or hit to your ankle can break one or more of the 3 main bones in your ankle joint :

  1. the fibula
  2. the tibia
  3. the talus

Sometimes the injury can be more intense and include some of the 2 dozen bones in your foot.

If you want to purposely break your ankle- Don't. WikiAnswers does NOT give advice on how to harm your body. Click on the related Question below

There are several ways that a person can dislocate their ankle, including falling in a hole. Someone can also fall from a distance and land on the ankle wrong, which could dislocate it.
