Is it possible for there to be no swelling on an ankle injury?

Asked 3 years ago

I jumped down off a low wall and hurt my ankle, but it hasn't swollen up at all. It is still quite painful, and I was wondering if there is still a chance for an ankle injury without the swelling.

Swelling and soreness are common after-effects of ankle injuries. There are two injuries, however, that might cause ankle pain while walking without swelling. A low-grade ankle sprain is a type of injury that causes ankle pain while walking but does not result in swelling.

Achilles tendinitis is another condition that can cause ankle pain while walking but no swelling. The Achilles tendon can become overstretched or injured as a result of repetitive actions. You may have pain in the back of your ankle when walking in mild cases of this injury, but there may be no or little swelling

You can have an ankle injury without swelling, as in the case of a high ankle sprain. 6 out of 100 ankle sprains are of this nature. It may result from overrotation and sudden directional change while playing sports. To heal a high ankle sprain, you'll need balance training, gait adjustment, and the use of orthotics, among others.
