Ankle Fracture

Ankle fractures happen when the ankle is twisted the wrong way on a fall and can range from a simple break in one bone to several fractures in the area. The more bones that are broken, the more unstable the ankle becomes.

Signs & Symptoms of Ankle Fracture

Signs and symptoms of ankle fractures include pain, progressive swelling, and skin discoloration, or an unusual foot position.

Treatments of Ankle Fracture

Upon fracturing your ankle, a doctor will typically reposition the foot in order to avoid any further damage to the soft tissues, nerves, and blood vessels. Ankle fractures are usually treated with casts, braces, rest, exercise, and sometimes surgery. This is necessary in order to rebuild the muscle and the mobility of the ankle joint.
