    Brief Medical History Overview

    Fractured Ankle or sprain?

    Physical Agents In Rehabilitation
    Hi all,

    Got two footed slide tackled in football and rolled and fell on my ankle. Extreme agony when I did it however I can walk on it but hobbling. I have had extreme swelling and nerve pain and discomfort along back of ankle bone. However, went to minor injuries and they didnít bother to x ray as itís a bad sprain but I think iíve done worse.

    Should I go back and ask for an x ray?? (Iíve broken this ankle before by rolling it when I was younger)

    Any advice appreciated

    Hi,

    On a safer side get an xray just for a peace of mind.
    However, if the swelling was not red/ black in colour it might just be a Grade 2/3 sprain.
    Good luck.
