Just broken? Ankle brace with ribs

It can sometimes happen that you accidentally hit hard during a sport or during a daily activity. As a reflex you try to absorb yourself as well as possible with your hands and feet. However, the forces that are exerted on the hands and feet can be so great that the bones collapse as a result. It is said to be a bone fracture. An ankle brace can help with an ankle fracture that cannot be plastered or in the stretch after the cast has been removed from your foot.

A broken ankle?

Ankle fracture is said to be when a fracture occurs in the bone. The bone can break in one or more places. It is said to be a bone fracture if the entire bone breaks or if a crack in the bone occurs. 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. For example, the bone parts can remain against each other, then it is called a "neat fracture". But the bones can also be shifted or moved. In a serious case, a bone protrudes from the skin, it is called an open bone fracture. Fortunately, this is not very common.

Cause of ankle fracture

In most cases, a bone fracture occurs from a fall or an accident. For example, a bone fracture can be caused by a great external force. Think of a kick or a blow.
An ankle fracture can also be caused by an unexpected twist of the joint. For example, it is possible that you rotate your body while the foot is still standing.

  • Bruising
  • Swelling in the ankle

  • A deformation or bump that can become in the ankle feeling
  • Unable to turn his ankle
  • Unable to move his ankle

Ankle fracture treatment?

After it has been established that the ankle can be painful and can hardly be 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 bone fracture. In most cases, the bone fractures will be set and cast. If the fracture is too serious, surgery may be involved.

After the plaster is allowed to come off, the bones and muscles have to recover. The quality and strength of the muscles have deteriorated. Exercises can be performed with the help of a physio. Recovery can also be accelerated with the help of a brace. A brace provides firmness and stability around the ankle joint. It may also still apply after rehabilitation because the joint may be more unstable than before.
