Can I still work out while wearing a walking boot? #nqlu I have a fractured bone in my foot due to an ankle sprain and must wear a walking boot for 6 weeks for the bone to heal. What type of exercises can I still engage in?

You . You can engage in any upper body activity you like, and can also swim. I would not engage in any activity that involves you standing or putting any pressure on your foot / ankle or leg. That would include cycling.

Hi- I have a grade 3 ankle sprain s/p 56 hours. X-rays negative for fracture. I am wearing a cast boot and walking FWB. Should I do NWB?

Not necessarily. In general, you would want to stay off it to try to limit the swelling. Once you get beyond that, there is usually no contraindications to weight bearing as tolerated in a cast. The ligaments involved are not so much involved in weight bearing as they are in stabilizing the ankle and so would be protected in a cast. Discuss your specific case with your doctor. Read more...

OCD? This sounds like it could be more insidious than just a sprain. One option is to obtain an MRI of the ankle. Often times osteochrondral defects or tears in the peroneal tendons can seem like a sprain but need some type of surgical intervention. Ask your physician for an MRI of the foot and ankle.

Fracture non union. That fracture may be going into a phase of delayed healing depending on the treatment you've had thus far. If the fracture is not displaced, then you may benefit from a bone stimulator to expedite healing. Otherwise you may need surgery to address it. Read more...
Delayed Union. Many cuboid fractures are not initially seen on plain x-rays and their diagnosis can be delayed. Would recommend getting rechecked to evaluate healing (CT, MRI, and/or xray may be necessary). Also, would get your vit D level checked. Though rare with a cuboid fracture, swelling may also be a sign of a DVT. Get checked out. Good luck. Read more...
