Summary | Healing time of an external ankle fracture


Regardless of the fracture type, external ankle fractures have a very good prognosis. After approx. 2 months, normal, moderate strain on the affected leg is possible again, and after 6 months at the latest, sports such as running or football can be practiced again.

Complications occur only rarely with both conservative and surgical therapy. Late effects such as chronic pain or functional limitations are also not to be expected.
