Chronic Ankle Fracture
Need X-ray: You need to get your foot/ankle checked and x-rays taken in order to determine if a fracture is present. If this is a recent injury, the tightness can be from swelling from both conditions. However, it is important to diagnose the correct condition so proper treatment can be rendered. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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. 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

Ankle instability : Ankle sprains and specifically bad ankle sprains or multiple ankle sprains can create a situation in which the ligaments are left in a state of "stretch" known as laxity.

Sometimes that is not enough and the ligaments might need repaired. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have a comminuted intra articular fracture of the 2nd metatarsal,oblique 3&4,medial cuneiform all nondisplaced lisfranc injury. Cast or surgery?
No: A grade 1 sprain is a minor injury to a ligament. With conservative treatment (rest, ice, and elevation), the symptoms should subside in 7-10 days. If they don't, see your doctor, because there could always have been a fracture present from the initial injury. X rays or other imaging might be necessary. Hope this helps! ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Ankle MRI report - ant tib tendon bowing, tendonitis in ant tib, tenosynovitis in posterior tib, mild tendonitis in Achilles'. Best treatment?
Cold compresses help: I have found that tendinitis frequently responds to application of cold compresses, particularly gel devices kept in a freezer which when applied to tendinitis will cut the inflammation down and provide comfort without the potential side effects of listed medications (which help as well but can cause considerable side effects). Such gel devices can be found in drug stores (OTC). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
