How do I know if my ankle injury is a fracture or a sprain?
Symptoms can be similar, but fractures are associated with: pain at the site of the fracture that can extend from the foot to the knee, significant swelling, blisters over the injury site, bruising soon after the injury, and bone protruding from the skin. The latter is the sign of a compound fracture, which requires immediate medical attention!
