Surgery: The bones are fully healed after years. Consult with an orthopedic surgeon. Special shoes inserts or a brace may help, but the only way to permanently correct the misalignment would be a surgery ...Read more
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
My tibia connected with an elbow when i did a kick, now ankle is swollen just below ankle joint & tibia hurts when walk or bare weight. Is it broken?
Possibly: I would recommend an x-ray of the area by either a podiatrist or orthopedic foot specialist. The injured area should be treated according to the findings. If not broken and treatment does not resolve the pain and swelling then i would recommend an MRI study. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hip 2 foot leg pain, sometimes foot turns ice cold. Broke knee cap years ago, not diabetic, not over weight. Cause for concern?
Go see a doctor: Pain that radiates from hip 2 toes is usually caused by a pathology above the hip. Your patella (knee cap) fracture, most likely, has nothing to do with this pain. Your back is a likely candidate, but your history of heart disease and the fact that your foot turns cold, makes me think of a vascular (arterial) cause for your pain. I would definitely recommend you see a doctor to begin a workup. ...Read more

Rolled ankle during basketball - no ankle pain- but immediate pain around base of fifth metatarsal. No swelling/bruising but hurts to bear weight.
5th met base: the peroneal tendon attaches to the 5th met base area. In some severe ankle sprain cases the tendon can pull hard enough to fracture the bone- adulation fracture. Should have an X-ray performed on your foot to confirm if broken or not. Otherwise it's treated like an ankle sprain and you need a brace. Go see your local podiatrist or foot and ankle dr ...Read more

Sprained foot & ankle a mo ago in fall down stairs. Xray neg for fracture so far. Top of foot still so sore I can barely touch. Is this normal?
Not normal: This is a common complaint seen in the urgent care center. If your foot or ankle is still hurting after 1 month, it is likely fractured and missed on the initial XRAY read or re-injured due to improper immobilization of the original sprain. You foot needs re-evaluation, a repeat XRAY, and a proper orthopedic shoe with Ortho follow-up +/- Physical Therapy. See your doctor today. ...Read more

Can a ankle boot fix a pulled or torn muscle in the front of my ankle that won't heal? It's been 4 months but little things like stairs/bending hurt
Probably: Soft tissue injuries are often harder to heal because the area is re-injured repeatedly because we don't allow it really rest, whereas a fracture requires immobility because of the pain. So, a device that will cause the injured area to rest for 4-6 weeks, may be necessary to allow it to heal if still painful after 4 months. Warm compresses 3x/day may help also to speed healing. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Fractured ankle year ago and took off soft cast early it is stiill swollen and now vessels are purple in foot and parts off ankle are purple hurt?
I rolled ankle and feel this morning. Ankle doesn't hurt but foot very sore half way between last toe and ankle. Can put wght on foot lifting it sore.
Fracture: One thing that can occur when you sprain or twist your ankle is a fracture of the base of the 5th metatarsal. This can often go untreated. My recommendation is to get an x-ray of the foot and ankle to make sure that you don't have a fracture. If you don't then ice, elevation, compression and an NSAID will help to resolve the sprain. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
