Ankle dislocations almost always occur with a sprain or fracture. When an ankle is dislocated, the adjoining bones in the joint are displaced to the point they no longer have contact with each other. During an ankle dislocation, the bones of the ankle, including the fibula, tibia and talus, ligaments and the soft tissue surrounding the dislocated bones, including tendons, muscles, nerves and blood vessels, are affected.
