Sport injury to ankle

I had a soccer game last night and another player kicked my ankle and it hurt to move it from a 180 degree angle and it does have bruising and swelling and it also hurts to move it in certain directions even with an ace wrap. Do you know what that could be?

    Hello and thank you for your question. I would see a Podiatrist or Urgent Care Center to rule out any fracture. Since you were kicked and didn’t fall it’s most likely more inflammation or a bone bruise however you still want to err on the side of caution. In the mean time I suggest icing, wrapping, and anti-inflammatories. I’d also reduce all activity until you rule out a fracture. I hope this helps!
