Doctors have noticed an increase in the number and severity of broken ankles since the 1970s, due, in part, to the Baby Boomer generation being active throughout every stage of their lives.

 

A broken ankle can involve one or more bones, as well as injury to the surrounding connecting tissues or ligaments.

 

There are a wide variety of causes for broken ankles, most commonly a fall, an automobile accident, or sports-related trauma. Because a severe sprain can often mask the symptoms of a broken ankle, every ankle injury should be examined by a physician.

Symptoms of a broken ankle include:

  • Bruising.
  • Swelling.
  • Immediate and severe pain.
  • Inability to put any weight on the injured foot.
  • Tenderness to the touch.
  • Deformity, particularly if there is a dislocation or a fracture.

If you think you may have broken your ankle, we'll examine you and take Xrays. If there is an actual break, however, we will have to refer you out to an orthopedic surgeon, since podiatrists in New York are not licensed to treat such fractures.
