How to Tell the Difference between an Ankle Sprain and a Break

Last updated 2 years ago

Ankle injuries are common, but it can be difficult to tell the difference between a sprained ankle and a broken bone that needs to be set by a physician. A sprained ankle can actually be more painful than a broken one, so pain alone is not a good indicator of your ankle’s condition.

In this video, you will learn how to examine an ankle injury to tell if it is a sprain or a broken bone. Deformities in the shape of the foot or numbness are most indicative of a break. To learn how to alleviate pain and swelling until your injury can be treated by a doctor, be sure to watch this video.

The qualified physicians at Suburban Orthopaedics are here to help you on the path to rehabilitation after an injury. For more information, visit our website or call (888) 876-0117 today.
