What are some signs of a hairline fracture in your ankle?

Pain & Swelling

Hand_fracture
The symptoms of a hairline/occult fracture include persistent pain, swelling and difficulty walking and standing on the ankle. These can also be small enough that they are not revealed on normal x-rays. If these persist longer than your doctor indicated for a sprain, additional testing such as an MRI or bone scan might need to be considered. Good luck.

Dr. Matthew Enna answered:

How is a fracture different from a hairline fracture in the ankle?

No difference

Bone
A "hairline fracture" is a layman's term for a non-displaced fracture (a break in the bone, but the bone has not move out of position at all). All hairline fractures are fractures, but not all fractures are hairline fractures, as fractures are often times displaced due to the force of the injury and/or due to the muscle pull of the surrounding muscles.

Dr. Ryan J. Grabow answered:

What is the hospital treatment for a hairline fracture in your knee?

Depends

Forearm_fractures
Unfortunately it depends on where the hairline fracture is located in your "knee". The knee includes 4 different bones (Femur, tibia, fibula, and patella.) Typically any hairline fracture is treated with a reduction of use. This may include using crutches to limit or eliminate weight bearing. You need to see your orthopedic surgeon for an evaluation and recommendation based on your fracture.
