Ankle Fracture


Ankle Fracture Treatment

If you suspect a fracture, you should call your doctor or go to a hospital's emergency department immediately.  You can do the following until you can get to a hospital or doctor's office:

  • Stay off the injured ankle so you do not injure it further.
  • Keep the ankle elevated to help decrease swelling and pain.
  • Apply cold packs to the injured area to decrease swelling and pain.  Do not apply ice directly.  Cold packs are effective for the first 12-24 hours.
  • Ibuprofen (Advil, Excedrin, Motrin) is ideal for ankle injuries because it acts as both a pain medicine and a medicine to keep inflammation down.
