Frequently Asked Questions
Ankle fractures are treated by an Orthopedician.
2. How do you heal a Broken Ankle faster?
Reduction (bone realignment) or placing a splint is the first step to put a displaced bone back into position or to treat a suspected fracture until X-ray confirmation. This prevents extensive soft tissue damage and swelling and accelerates the process of healing.
3. How long does it take to recover from a Broken Ankle?
A patient can resume normal activity and bear heavy loads in 12 to 16 weeks, following the injury.
