Re: Sprained Ankle and medial malleolus avulsion fracture Questio
I fractured my medial malleolus along with a sprain. I was told to stay on crutches until I saw a specialist. There is a major ligament in that area that can be damaged with a sprain and fracture to the medial malleolus. My doctor checked for damage by running his hand along the ligament. I spent 8 weeks in a boot. My sister who had an avulsion fracture on the outside of the ankle spent 4 weeks in a hard cast. I also had an MRI done but I think that was more of a precaution.
