Do I Need an X-ray for my Ankle Injury?

Ankle sprains are common, and do not need to be x-rayed to be treated properly. However, pain or tenderness in certain locations in the foot, or the inability to walk on the foot without incredible pain are all signs that a fracture may have occurred. Fractures must be X-rayed to be properly diagnosed and treated by a physician.
