Could a sprained ankle cause shin bruising?

It's possible. It's possible but more likely to occur around the heel and ankle. Make sure you get an x-ray to make sure you don't have a broke bone. Sometimes people think it is just a sprain and find that there is a fracture of the bone. Go to a podiatrist.

Yes. The ankle will swell for quite some time. Ice several times daily, elevate the extremity and if you can safely take it, ibuprofen will help. Once you can begin range of motion this should help with swelling as well. If you are not in one I would recommend a pneumatic cam walker and ask your physician for consult for physical therapy. The therapy will be most important. Read more...
