Discounted Ankle Orthopedic Surgery In New York & New Jersey
Ankle problems run the gamut from Achilles tendonitis and rupture to arthritis of the ankles and feet, fractures, sprains and cartilage damage. Ankle injuries are extremely common and can result from sports-related activities or normal daily activities such as walking down stairs or stepping off a curb.
A broken ankle is the same as a fractured ankle, where one or more bones that comprise the ankle joint get broken. You can have a single break in one bone, which may not stop you from walking, to multiple fractures, which force your ankle out of place and may put you on crutches for a few months. The more bones you fracture, the less stable your ankle becomes. You may also have ligament damage. Those ligaments hold your ankle joint in its proper position.
There’s no age limit on broken ankles or other ankle injuries. In the past 30 years, doctors have seen increases in both the number and severity of ankle fractures, especially among active “baby boomers.” Whether you twist or rotate your ankle, roll your ankle, trip, fall or experience a high-impact auto accident, you can sustain a fracture.
Is it sprained or broken?
A severely sprained ankle can feel just as bad as a broken ankle. That’s why you must see an orthopedic doctor near you, a bone doctor or a bone specialist as quickly as possible if you have any of the following ankle symptoms:
- Immediate, severe pain
- Hurts to touch
- Unable to bear any weight
- Looks deformed or dislocated
