hi, i recently fell downtairs spraining my foot. couldn't move it or touch it, my doctor suspected a fracture so put an emergency splint and told to have it x-rayed.
x-ray showed a possible fracture and severe bruising, they made another splint and sent home with prescription for a scan to determine ligaments damage, and a cast application when the swelling reduces.
i have a pair of question being my first ankle injury:
-the new splint is very unstable and the foot hurts more than it did in the old one, should i change it?
-is the cast prescription definitive? or will the therapy be determined on the scan outcome? if the bone isn't broken maybe the cast isn't necessary.
