Is My Ankle Sprained or Broken?
Sprained ankles are very common, especially considering how many people play sports. A sprain will usually heal on its own with a good wrap, time off from bearing weight, elevation and some ice. Considering the price of an emergency room visit, the ER is not always a logical or frugal first choice. But if the ankle is broken, delaying care can be a bad thing. Knowing when to see a doctor about an ankle injury is important and can save both time and further complications. But how do you know? The team at Kansas City Foot Specialists put together these signs to look for to help determine if it’s a sprained or broken ankle.
