Landed on a foot playing basketball and ankle made a pop sound and it hurt later that night, no swelling and it hurts bad to walk. Sprained or broken?
Sprained. From the nature of the injury it appears that you sprained it but as always you want to be certain that there is no fracture so if it continues to be painful I would consider getting an X-ray to make sure but conservative care with a ankle brace would help and also beginning an icing program and then work on a Range of motion program and ankle strengthening exercises as well.
I rolled my ankle playing basketball. It is swollen, painful, bruised on 2 sides, but I can walk on it well. Sound like a sprain? Signs of fracture?
Start RICE ASAP. You description of the injury certainly sounds like a sprain. Best to RICE it. Rest, ice compression and elevation. One can never be sure that it isn't fractured, however, unless you have it x-rayed. The symptoms can be similar depending on the severity of the injury. If it is severe enough a cam walker boot may be indicated. To remove all doubt, have it examined by a specialist. Read more...
