Get Back on Your Feet After an Ankle Fracture

Contact Bozeman Foot and Ankle Clinic for diagnosis in Bozeman or Livingston, MT

An ankle fracture is a partial or complete break in your ankle bone. You may experience an ankle fracture if your ankle rolls inward or outward. Many people mistake an ankle fracture for an ankle sprain, but an ankle fracture is a much more serious condition.

Bozeman Foot and Ankle Clinic can diagnose and treat ankle fractures. You may have an ankle fracture if you notice:

  • Pain or swelling at the site of the fracture
  • Blisters over the fracture site
  • Bruising on your ankle
  • Inability to walk
  • Change in appearance of your ankle
  • Bone protruding through the skin

Reach out to Bozeman Foot and Ankle Clinic as soon as you notice signs of an ankle fracture.
