People with a more severe ankle injury by extreme bruising or swelling and an inability to bear weight on foot without significant pain, or when there doesn’t seem to be an improvement over the first several days after the angle & foot injury should seek medical attention.
Mild, low-grade ankle injury at work will usually heal in one to three weeks with proper rest and non-surgical care( such as applying ice). Moderate injuries may take between three and four weeks. Because of limited blood flow to the ankle’s ligaments, more severe angle & foot injuries may take three and six months to heal.
Usually, workplace ankle injuries such as broken ankles get caused by falls, high-impact sports, car accidents, or damages that place excessive force on the ankle. Treatment depends on the severity of the break. If it’s serious, you might need surgery to realign the bone. You might get a walking boot, cast, or splint if you have a minor ankle break.
