I've never heard of the term 'skaters ankle', but the most common form of sprained ankle which is when your ankle is bent toward the instep (lateral) side of the foot is called an 'inversion or lateral sprain' and usually involves the anteriorfibular and calcaneofibular ligaments.

 

In German that would be called a Verstauchung und Zerrung des oberen Sprunggelenkes involving the Lig. talofibulare (anterius) (posterius) u Lig. calcaneofibulare.

 

If your ankle is bent in the outer (or medial) direction it would be called an 'eversion or medial sprain' and would primarily be affecting the deltoid (medial) ligament.

 

In German that would be a Verstauchung und Zerrung des oberen Sprunggelenkes involving the Lig. deltoideum

 

There's a third type of sprained ankle which is much rarer but reportedly not uncommon amongst ice hockey and roller derby players and some other contact sports which is called a 'high (sysndesmotic) ankle sprain' and affects the tibiofibular ligaments which connect the long leg bones tibia and fibula.

 

A German doctor would probably refer to that as a

Verstauchung und Zerrung des oberen Sprunggelenkes

Innenband

Lig. tibiofibulare (anterius) (posterius), distal

 

Because recovery periods can range from 3 weeks to over a year (!!!) it is very important that if you do have such an injury you should make an appointment ASAP (!!!) with the right kind of specialist who will have plenty of experience in diagnosing the degree of the sprain and the correct conservative treatment.

 

Search for Sportsmediziner + your PLZ+Berlin using www.google.DE (!!) to find one.

 

The basic rule of thumb to follow in the immediate post-injury short term is summed up with an acronym R I C E which means 

R) resting the ankle,

applying I) ice,

C) compressing,

and E) elevating it.

 

HTH and gute Besserung!
