Ankle Injury Question


How long does it take on average for a 2nd or 3rd degree ankle sprain take to heal? How about a hairline fracture? The injury is the inside of the ankle. I was told I have one of the three but the doc wasn’t for sure so she is ordering a bone scan. I was put in a cast boot and was only told I’d be in it awhile. Physical Therapy was also ordered.

  1. I have a hairline fracture on my ankle im only 14 years old my doctor just took my cast off. My doctor told me to goget x-rays we went back the next day he told me i needed another cast. I was in a cast for two weeks i really want to walk again. I hard for me to get around my house. Im really desperet to know for how long im going to know im going to have my second cast.

  2. Hi, I’m 15 years old and i play basketball. I just got over a Hairline Fracture Ankle injury about 2 or 3 weeks ago and started playing the 2 week after i got my caste off. Sometimes it feels good and sometimes it doesn’t. My Baskeball season starts the 30th of November, and i’m the Starting point Gaurd on my Varsity team. My questions that i want to ask are: is there any way i can speed up the healing process of my ankle? and if so what are they? Another is what specific therapy should i do for my ankle and how long do you think it would take for it to heal and get back to its old strength, and how hard should i work it out? Another question is what kinds of material would i need to rejuvinate my ankle and where can I find these things this is my first injury. Thank you much
