Is it okay to walk on a sprained ankle?

The ankle is a joint which connects the leg to the foot and provides you with a range of motion in the area. Ankle sprains are an injury where you roll or twist your ankle in an abnormal way so that the ligaments in the ankle stretch or tear, followed by discomfort and pain. If you or a loved one has fractured a bone from an accident, contact Agruss Law Firm, LLC for a free consultation so we can help you recover from this experience and get fairly compensated.

Fractures are a break in the bone, whereas a sprain is a tear or other means of damage to the ankle’s ligaments. Ligaments are tough and stretchy bands of connective tissue bundles that connect bones to other bones. An ankle sprain can also be painful, though, and cause large amounts of pain and discomfort using your ankle how you would normally use it conducting your everyday tasks.

Due to the damage to the ankle’s ligaments, it is generally not recommended to walk on a sprain for some time. By doing so, you may damage the ligaments even more by forcing the area to bear the weight of your body. Also, it can lengthen the recovery time that would normally be required of your injury since you may agitate it. Ultimately, your doctor knows the extent of your injuries, and very minor sprains may be suitable to walk on soon after the injury. Ask your doctor about when is the right time to begin walking. The more that you adhere to their treatment instructions, the more likely it is that you will be back on your feet in a shorter amount of time.
