How to break your ankle easily on purpose I want to know how to break my ankle on purpose so I can get a cast and crutches

Ebay: Ha, can't believe I looked this up! You can find cast material (about 30-50 bucks) and crutches (about 20 bucks) on ebay--that would be a lot cheaper and less painful than breaking your ankle on purpose.

I am wondering what exercises I should do after an ankle break?

I am wondering what exercises I should do after an ankle break?

How far along are: You in the healing process? Once bone healing is complete, there will be both range of motion and strengthening exercises. A simple version of range of motion exercises involves moving your foot only at the ankle and drawing out the letters of the alphabet as large as you can. Strengtheing can involve raising up on your toes on both feet, then the injured one by itself as tolerated.

How can you on purpose break your ankle pleaze tell an honest answer I need attention!?

How can you on purpose break your ankle pleaze tell an honest answer I need attention!?

Why?: I'm not quite sure I understand -- are you planning to break your own ankle? My honest answer is that this is a really bad idea. Ankle breaks are no fun, and depending on the injury, can be very complicated to repair and take a long time to heal. If it's attention you want, I suggest you (at 18?) speak with a trusted adult about your feelings -- and very possibly a therapist as well.

I managed to break my ankle in the same place twice in the space of a year, but now (one year on), where I broke it is really bothering me and painful?

I managed to break my ankle in the same place twice in the space of a year, but now (one year on), where I broke it is really bothering me and painful?

Revisit ortho: How unfortunate for you! Your ankle may not have been completely healed yet, making it more prone to re-injury. Time for a visit to your orthopedist for another set of xrays. Securing it with an ankle brace or wrap, applying ice packs and taking Advil (ibuprofen) or Motrin would be a good idea for the meantime.

Can an athlete get full recovery after a trimalleolar ankle break?

Can an athlete get full recovery after a trimalleolar ankle break?

Yes with fx alignmen: Yes, with proper anatomical alignment of the fractures of the medial and lateral malleolus and the posterior aspect of the tibia. Hardware maybe problematic if synedesmodic screws were place across the ankle joint to provide stability of the ligament rupture. Time is the best indicator to return to sport activity.

If you broke your ankle and kept running and stuff like that on it would the break get bigger?

Depends...: Ankle fractures (breaks) can either be stable or unstable injuries based on the mechanism of injury, force of injury, etc. Stable fractures typically wouldn't get bigger unless further injured. Unstable injuries under most circumstances are best treated surgically. See an orthopaedic ankle specialist if questions exist.

What could I do to break/sprain your ankle at home?

What could I do to break/sprain your ankle at home?

Try: Jumping out the window. That always works for me. To be serious, dr. Sung's advice to be careful on stairs is very important, but sometimes a simple mis-step is enough to twist/sprain/break your ankle. Only an x-ray can determine if you have a break though. Ice, rest, elevation, and if you're not much better in 24 hours, go see a podiatrist or orthopedist.
