Have you broken or fractured your ankle?
Unfortunately, an ankle injury can occur in numerous ways and can be extremely painful. For example, you may suffer this type of injury as a result of a simple trip or fall or you could suffer an ankle injury because of a collision, such as a road traffic incident or a travel related accident.
If you have fractured or broken a bone in your ankle, you will need to attend the nearest hospital. In addition to being in extreme pain, it’s likely that you will want to ensure that the injury is set correctly so that it heals properly, without further complications.
Often, people with this type of injury will be unable to put weight on their ankle and they may need to wear a cast or protective boot whilst the injury heals. This means that you could need crutches or even a wheelchair in order to get around.
As many people need weeks or months to recover from this type of injury, you could be forced to take a significant time off work and you may be unable to carry out your normal daily tasks. For example, you may find it difficult to bathe or shower as you may be unable to get the plaster cast wet. Similarly, you may be unable to drive or move around as easily as your normally would so you may be reliant on other people for assistance.
