    You have not specifically mentioned which bone is fractured. Any way using a ice pack is the right thing.

    you can use ice packs on your ankle, but do not put your ankle into the ice bucket, it can cause ice burns.It is advisable to mobilize the ankle joint and wrap an elastocrepe bandage while walking using a elbow crutch.
