If it is confirmed hairline fracture, the best thing is to apply POPdistally upto the toes and proximal lay upto the mid leg. Tho the movement will be restricted but you can move and attend your examination.

Hairline fracture needs a plaster cast, otherwise in the long run there will be constant ache in your ankle joint whenever you put load on it. Consult a good orthopaedic surgeon.
