When you get a severe sprain, you may actually hear or feel something tear, or even here a pop-like sound. You may be feeling a lot of pain at the site of the injury. Some patients may also not be able to bear any weight on their foot. When you come to see our Martin County foot fracture doctor, he will ask you how the injury occurred and whether or not you have hurt your ankle before. Some ankles are very prone to repeated injury, and may benefit from an ankle stabilization procedure. Our doctor will also make sure that there has been no injury to the leg, foot, or knee when the ankle is the source of pain. X-rays may be ordered to see if there is a broken bone. Even if there is not a broken bone, the injury can be very painful with much swelling and bruising. Our doctor will analyze which ligaments have been hurt. Our doctor may choose to order an MRI to confirm injury to a ligament or joint surface. Treatment will ultimately depend on our doctor’s diagnosis. Nonsurgical treatments may include crutches or air splints. Even if there is a complete tearing of the ligament this can heal without surgery if it is appropriately immobilized close to the time when the injury occurred.
