All About Ankle Fracture

18-Agosto-2014Learn About Your Injury

An ankle fracture is a break in 1 or more ankle bones. These fractures may:

  • Be partial (the bone is only partially cracked, not all the way through)
  • Be complete (the bone is broken through and is in 2 parts)
  • Occur on 1 or both sides of the ankle

16-Agosto-2014What to Expect

You may be referred to an orthopedic (bone) doctor. Until that visit:

  • You will need to keep your cast or splint on at all times and keep your foot raised as much as possible.
  • Do not put any weight on your injured ankle or try to walk on it.

Ankle and Foot Pain

15-Agosto-2014Home Care

Home care for ankle pain depends on the cause and what other treatment or surgery has taken place. You may be asked to:

  • Rest your ankle for several days. Try NOT to put much weight on your ankle.
  • Put on an ACE bandage. You also can buy a brace that supports your ankle.
  • Use crutches or a cane to help take the weight off a sore or unsteady ankle.

Go to the hospital if:

  • You suspect a broken bone (the joint looks deformed and you cannot put any weight on the leg).
  • You can hear a popping sound and have immediate pain of the joint.
