Brief answer: Nothing abnormal Detailed answer.... Hello, Thanks for the query. Recurring twists of your ankle may be due to your overdoing of exercises and walking on uneven surfaces. I don't find anything abnormal in this. My advice to you is to be more careful while going for hiking and not over do your exercises.Be careful when putting your steps. I hope it helps however you may revert to me for any further query. Best of luck Thanks
