What is an Ankle Fracture?

A fractured ankle can range from a simple break in one bone, which may not stop you from walking, to several fractures, which forces your ankle out of place and may require that you not put weight on it for a few months. The more bones that are broken, the more unstable the ankle becomes.

Symptoms of an Ankle Fracture

How is an Ankle Fracture Treated?

Typically, conservative treatment will help heal an ankle fracture. However, if your injury caused a piece of your bone to break off, your doctor may recommend open reduction and internal fixation with plates and screws to fix the injury.
