I felt a small pop in my ankle as I went up on my toes to reach something. It's slightly painful when I flex my ankle but I can walk fine. Sprain?
Not a sprain: Sprain is when a ligament is torn (partial or complete). Going up on toes is unlikely to tear a ligament unless your rolled it. It is more likely that you stretched the anterior capsule of the ankle joint or subluxed or popped a tendon over a boney protuberance. Ice it down for 1st 2 days if hurts, see doc if it persists. ...Read more

Will a navicular stress fracture still heal if I 'walk' in my cam walker without flexing my ankle? It is so hard to deal with two kids on crutches.

With that said it will heal faster if you immobilize it completely. Any fracture takes anywhere from 4-8 weeks to heal with proper immobility. ...Read more
