I can still walk on my ankle. Does that mean it is okay?
In the case of some ankle sprains and fractures, it is possible to walk and mistakenly believe that an injury does not require medical treatment. The ability to walk does not mean that your ankle is not broken or badly sprained. Walking on the injury can make the problem worse, and lead to long-term joint pain, and even arthritis later in life.
