Snowboarder's Ankle

Select an injury location on the skier or snowboarder

What is a Snowboarder's Ankle Injury?

Snowboarders have their very own lower limb injury – Snowboarders ankle. This is a fracture of the outerside of the Talus bone of the ankle, often as a result of a high energy ankle sprain. These injuries can be difficult to detect as they don't always show up on x-ray films. If there is persistent ankle pain then a CT Scan may be required to confirm the injury.

What can you do to prevent Snowboarder's Ankle?

Use a wobble board to enhance your balance and proprioception. Enhanced proprioception allows you to recover when you feel your ankle going over.

Proprioception Explained

Wear a sports ankle brace and high cut shoes. This acts as a physical restraint and helps to prevent going over on the ankle.

We recommend the Aircast A60 Ankle Brace for snowboarding.

What should you do if you suffer a Snowboarder's Ankle Injury?

Seek medical help. Once a fracture of the Talus bone has been confirmed, the medical management is dependent on the position of the fracture fragments. Small fractures where the fragments are not displaced tend to recover well with conservative treatment and a period of immobilisation in an Aircast Pneumatic Walker. More complicated fractures often require surgical fixation with a screw.
