A 33-year-old member asked:
Will ankle brace be enough for a fractured ankle bone? can i walk?

More info: If its a non weight bearing bone like fibula it may be enough. If its a displaced fracture see a doctor right away. The quickest way to get bones to heal is stay off it.
Need more info to give exact advise.
