Thanks for posting your query.
A Broken ankle is a very common injury
and the severity of the fracture
varies. Ankle fractures may be partial, open or closed and may be as a result of a fall, collision/impact, or accident. Thorough assessment and an x-ray examination and/or CT scan
is done by an orthopedic doctor to review the injury and the extent of any damage to the nerves and surrounding tissues.
and home exercises are available and you should start doing them regularly. Eventually, you will also start doing exercises to strengthen the surrounding muscles of the ankle. It may take several months for the muscles around your ankle to become as strong as before the injury took place. Even after the fracture has healed, an ankle brace may still need to be worn for several months.
Wishing you good health...
