It can sometimes happen that you accidentally hit a hard blow during a sport or during a daily action. As a reflex you try to catch yourself as well as possible with your hands and feet. However, the forces that come on the hands and feet can be so great that the bones will collapse as a result. There is talk of a bone fracture.
There is talk of an ankle fracture when there is a fracture in the bone. The bone can break in one or more places. There is a bone fracture when the whole bone breaks or when a rupture occurs in the bone. A common ankle fracture is in the fibula. The fibula is located on the outside of the ankle joint.
However, there is a classification for the severity of the fracture. In this way the bone parts can sit against each other, then there is talk of a "neat break". But the bones can also be shifted or moved. In a serious case, a bone sticks out of the skin, there is talk of an open bone fracture. Fortunately, this is not often the case.
In most cases, a bone fracture occurs due to a fall or an accident. For example, a fracture can occur due to a large force from the outside. Think of a kick or a blow.
A single fracture can also occur due to an unexpected twist on the joint. It can happen that you turn your body while the foot is still standing.
After it has been established that the ankle can be painfully and almost no longer moved, you will have to go to the doctor. The doctor will refer you to the hospital after which the X-rays will show whether you have a broken bone. In most cases, bone fractures will be put and tipped. If the break is too severe, surgery can be involved.
After the plaster has been removed, the bones and muscles must be repaired. The quality and strength of the muscles have deteriorated. Exercises can be performed with the help of a physio. The recovery can also be accelerated with the help of a brace. A brace provides firmness and stability around the ankle joint. It can also still apply after rehabilitation because the joint can be more unstable than before.
The ankles of children can also break after an accident, in which case they will suffer an ankle injury which will be first plastered. A brace can be recommended for further recovery (children's sizes). The brace provides firmness and stability:
