How do you know you have chipped your ankle bones if you haven't had any Xrays? If you are in too much pain, I suggest you go the ER. They can fix you up as needed.

IT IS IMPORTYANT THAT YOU GET TO A DOCTOR ASAP BUT IF YOU CANNOT GET THERE RIGHT AWAY DO NOT PUT ANY WEIGHT ON THE FOOT. EXCESSIVE PRESSURE ON AN ALREADY BROKEN BONE COULD MAKE THE BREAK WORSE. IF THE AREA SURROUNDING THE BROKEN BONE IS TURNING A YELLOWISH-GREEN COLOR SEE AN ER ASAP BECAUSE THIS MEANS YOU HAVE A COMPOUND FRACTURE AND THE SURROUNDING TISSUE IS DYING. JUST KEEP THE ANKLE ELEVATED AND APPLY AN ICE PACK EVERY 30 MINUTES OR SO.

Use an Ace bandage and wrap it. Keep your foot UP on the coffee table and use ICE to keep thte swelling down.

put pilow under foot in bed.wouldnt mess with it that takes bout 5 months or more to cure

First of all you don't know if the ankle is chipped? You need to get to a Dr. right away if you have damage to a bone. Don't play doctor and try to assume what is wrong. You need an x-ray. Do not wait even 24 hours, especially if it is broken. It needs to be set as soon after the injury ocurs as possible.


kurzez_incokerated
you can use crutches or something to not put any wieght on it and ice it...bassically use the RICE method
R rest
I ice
C compression
E elevation
It might not be chipped it might be something like what i did...its a contusion i think its like a bruise in your muscles. for that my doctor said ice it and take motrin for two weeks and it should go away.

Try not to put pressure on that particular leg until you get an X'ray. Use an Ice pack and try to elevate the affected leg.
Good luk
