Comprehensive Treatment for Ankle Fractures at Our Clinic

An ankle fracture is a serious injury that can disrupt daily life and hinder mobility. At Our Clinic, we specialize in diagnosing and treating ankle fractures with expertise and compassion, offering comprehensive care to ensure optimal recovery for our patients.

Understanding Ankle Fractures

An ankle fracture occurs when one or more of the bones surrounding the ankle joint break or crack. This injury commonly happens due to a sudden twist, fall, or impact to the ankle, leading to pain, swelling, and difficulty bearing weight on the affected leg. Ankle fractures can vary in severity, ranging from minor hairline fractures to more severe breaks that cause significant displacement or instability in the joint.

Symptoms of Ankle Fractures

Symptoms of an ankle fracture may include:

Intense pain at the site of the injury

Swelling, bruising, and tenderness around the ankle joint

Difficulty or inability to bear weight on the affected foot

Deformity or misalignment of the ankle

Restricted range of motion in the ankle joint

Comprehensive Treatment Options

At Our Clinic, we offer a range of treatment options for ankle fractures, tailored to the specific needs and severity of each patient’s injury. Treatment may include:

Immobilization: For stable ankle fractures, immobilization with a splint, cast, or brace may be sufficient to allow the bones to heal properly. This helps stabilize the ankle joint and prevent further injury.

Reduction: If the fractured bones are out of alignment, a procedure called reduction may be performed to manually realign the bones and restore normal anatomy. This can be done under local or general anesthesia, depending on the severity of the fracture.

Surgery: In cases of severe ankle fractures or fractures with significant displacement, surgical intervention may be necessary to realign the bones and stabilize the joint. Surgical techniques may involve the use of plates, screws, or rods to hold the bones in place during the healing process.

Rehabilitation: Following treatment, rehabilitation plays a crucial role in restoring strength, flexibility, and function to the ankle joint. Physical therapy exercises and rehabilitation programs are tailored to each patient's specific needs and help optimize recovery and prevent future complications.
