Check for the following sprained ankle symptoms to determine whether you have this injury. First, notice any pain around the joint. It can range from mild to severe when you stand or move your foot around. Second, look for swelling, especially around the bone on the outside of your ankle. Third, see if there is skin discoloration from bruising. Finally, notice whether the joint looks inflamed (red) or feels warm.
If you can’t stand on it, have a lot of swelling, or are in extreme pain, don’t wait. Come into Atlantic Foot & Ankle Associates for an examination.
