Can I return to playing tennis if I have a bone bruise? If I use an ankle brace? The doctor told me it was a very minor bruise and it was ok to play.
Likely yes: There are various types of bone bruises- some based on your history and exam and others confirmed with an MRI. Some on MRI actually represent small fractures.
