Playing Sports After A Colles' 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. 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
I had my ankle fractured about 2 years back though it`s working decent for walking and jog but i`m unable to play competitvely in sports.
Ankle fracture: Occasionally there is more damage than just to the bones when you fracture an ankle. There may be articular cartilage damage or lose pieces in the joint. The lining of the joint may also be very inflamed. I would see your orthopedic surgeon to let them know you ate having these kinds of symptoms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Wait: Icing decreases inflammation- which eventually enables the body to heal- but there is no need to keep icing once the swelling is down. Depending on the site and extent of fracture, you may need a boot or modified weight bearing for a period of time. If something hurts (without medications) it means you are not ready to do that activity yet. A physical therapist can help rehabilitate correctly. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Bracing of affected joints may also be considered. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Two ribs fractured my fibula and dislocated my ankle, how long will it be before i'm good enough to play sports?
Depends: It sounds as though you had quite the accident. Fractured ribs are painful enough, the fracture/dislocation of an ankle can have long rehabilitation schedules. In addition, of course, it also depends on what sports you want to play. You most likely had surgery on the ankle. I would ask the surgeon for his opinion, he would know better than anyone else. Good luck. ...Read more
My boyfriend has fractured his spine before . Unexpectedly he sometimes yells in pain that his wrist hurt . He plays sports i fear it's serious .
Maybe unrelated: Depends on what part of his spine was previously fractured, and what type of fracture he had. Was it a cervical spine fracture? If not, then the wrist pain is most likely unrelated to the prior fracture. Even if it was a cervical spine fracture, it may still be unrelated. He needs to get his wrist examined by his doctor. ...Read more
