When can I start running again after a severe ankle injury (fracture/dislocation)?

When can I start running again after a severe ankle injury (fracture/dislocation)?

It depends: By "severe" I assume you required surgery and have a little hardware store in there. After the initial 2 month period of non-weight bearing and another 2 months of physical therapy, you may begin power walks at 6 months, and resume your running on a limited basis in 8 months. If your injury was not that severe and you didn't have surgery, you'd probably be running again in 4-5 months. Read more

It seems that many believe that a "fracture" is a lesser injury or an incomplete break in the bone, but this is not correct. Fractures may be displaced or ...Read more
