A sudden twist of the ankle in an unnatural degree can render it in getting injured. This can be a quite distressing condition, wherein, pain is triggered even on slight movement of the ankle. Observing the symptoms can help a doctor diagnose, whether the ankle is really fractured or just sprained.
The ankle functions by supporting the balance and movement of the feet. Occasionally, an injury to the ankle may cause the fibula or tibia, two bones which make up the joint of the ankle, to break. A bone fracture can be a painful injury due to the bone being dislocated from the joint and small movements can trigger severe pain with other symptoms. Sports or strenuous exercise are some of the common factors causing an ankle fracture.

When a fracture in the ankle occurs due to trauma from an accident, sport injury, or excessive overuse, the bone may usually misalign from the joint, causing pain and other symptoms. For more information, please feel free to ask Dr. Jimenez or contact us at (915) 850-0900.
