11th Rib Fracture
A fracture is a broken bone. As there is cartilage at the end of many bones at the joint, a fracture may also include a break in the cartilage. Fractures and broken bones are the same thing.

Many problems: The fact that 3 muscles attach to the fifth metatarsal ( the peroneals) and that the fracture is displaced can cause an imbalance in these muscles and a non-healing fracture of that metatarsal.

Regardless the pain is generally localized with regional focal tenderness. There's often some degree of pain with range of motion of the wrist as well. ...Read more
Biscuit pack opening: Similar to image of a container of pre-made biscuits being opened, a spiral fracture basically unravels as it breaks commonly due to the rotatory force applied to the bone at the time of injury.

Delayed healing.: All your symptoms are subjective in nature.

Fifth metatarsal fractures are not the easiest to heal even under perfect circumstances. Radio-graphic evaluation might be needed to see if there is a delayed healing of the bone or just a post fracture neuritis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
