A fracture (break) of your ankle usually happens due to a fall, an accident or hard blow. There are different types of fractures that occur depending upon the severity of the injury. Spiral, hairline, open and crushed bones are names used to describe fractures.
Our doctors are experts in fracture care and will perform x-rays to determine the type fracture you have. We sometimes need to realign the bones, this is done through a process called reduction. Casting of the fracture, a walking boot, brace or splint are used to hold the bone in place during healing.
