Ankle avulsion injury

Ankle Avulsion Fracture

Ankle Avulsion Fracture

An ankle avulsion fracture occurs when a tendon or ligament comes away from the bone often pulling a small piece of bone with it. The symptoms are similar to an ankle sprain, but unlike a sprain, an avulsion fracture pulls a piece of bone off when the ligament tears. An x-ray can determine which ankle injury you have and so how best to treat it.
