A broken ankle is also known as an ankle fracture. This means that one or more of the bones that make up the ankle joint are broken.
A fractured ankle can range from a simple break in one bone, which may not stop you from walking, to several fractures, which forces your ankle out of place and may require that you not put weight on it for a few months.
Simply put, the more bones that are broken, the more unstable the ankle becomes. When the fracture occurs, various ligaments that hold the joint in place may also be simultaneously damaged.
