Broken ankles require immediate treatment. If you have any concerns about your feet and ankles visit Dr. Mayer Salama, D.P.M. of Salama Foot Care. Dr. Salamawill assess your injury and provide you with quality treatment.

Broken Ankles
A broken ankle is experienced when a person fractures their tibia or fibula in the lower leg and ankle area. Both these bones are attached at the bottom of the leg and combine to form what we know to be our ankle.

When a physician is referring to a break of the ankle, he or she is usually referring to a break in the area where the tibia and fibula are joined to create our ankle joint. Ankles are more prone to fractures because the ankle is an area that suffers a lot of pressure and stress. There are some obvious signs when a person experiences a fractured ankle and the following symptoms may be present.

Symptoms of a Fractured Ankle

  • Excessive pain when the area is touched or when any pressure is placed on the ankle
  • Swelling around the area
  • Bruising of the area
  • Area appears to be deformed

If you suspect an ankle fracture, it is recommended to seek treatment as soon as possible. The sooner you have your podiatrist diagnose the fracture, the quicker you’ll be on the way towards recovery.

Geoff Schwartz of the New York Giants has had to combat a season full of injuries. The player suffered a broken toe during the third preseason game against the Jets, placing him on short-term injured reserve for the first ten weeks of the season. After returning to the field, Schwartz was only able to make it one more quarter before he broke his ankle, officially ending his season. At the Giants’ minicamp in June, Schwartz shared, “My toe’s fine, I haven’t really felt it all this spring. My anke’s getting there, it’s just a matter of getting the repetitive pounding on the ankle. It’s gonna take time, I’ve got a couple of weeks now, five weeks to get it right.”

A broken toe is extremely painful and needs immediate attention. If you have any concerns about your feet contact Dr. Mayer Salama, D.P.M. of Salama Foot Care. Dr. Salama will treat your foot and ankle needs.

What to Know About a Broken Toe

Although most people try to avoid foot trauma such as banging, stubbing, or dropping heavy objects on their feet, the unfortunate fact is that it is a common occurrence. Given the fact that toes are positioned in front of the feet, they typically sustain the brunt of such trauma. When trauma occurs to a toe, the result can be a painful break (fracture).

Symptoms of a Broken Toe

  • throbbing pain
  • swelling
  • bruising on the skin and toenail
  • the inability to move the toe
  • toe appears crooked or disfigured
  • tingling or numbness in the toe

Generally, it is best to stay off of the injured toe with the affected foot elevated.

Severe toe fractures may be treated with a splint, cast, and in some cases, minor surgery. Due to its position and the pressure it endures with daily activity, future complications can occur if the big toe is not properly treated.

broken ankleMike Iupati, an NFL guard for the 49ers, was taken off the field and sidelined for what seems to be a broken ankle. After receiving the injury, 49ers Head Coach Jim Harbaugh released a statement saying that the massive guard may have sustained a very serious, possible career-ending injury.

As the season is over, Iupati will miss OTA and, if the prognosis is severe enough, he will find it incredibly difficult to get back into shape for training. It is unclear whether Iupati will return to the field, whether he will even return at all, and what shape he will be in when or if he does.

Broken Ankles

A broken ankle is when a person fractures their tibia or fibula in the lower leg and ankle area. The tibia is the bone of the lower leg that is known to be the weight-bearing bone and is also more commonly called the shin. The fibula is the bone that is found on the outside of the leg and is smaller than the tibia. These bones are both attached at the bottom of the leg and combine to form what we know to be our ankle.

When a physician is referring to a break of the ankle, he or she is usually referring to a break in the area where the tibia and fibula are joined to create our ankle joint. Ankle fractures are very common since they occur in an area that suffers a lot of weight bearing and stress; therefore this area is more prone to suffering from fractures. There some obvious signs when a person experiences a fractured ankle and the following symptoms may be present.

Symptoms of a Fractured Ankle

- Excessive pain when the area is touched or when any pressure is placed on the ankle.
- Swelling around the area.
- Colorful bruising of the area.
- Area appears to be deformed.

Prognosis of a broken ankle is normally good. The sooner your receive treatment the better. So if you suspect an ankle fracture, seek treatment as soon as possible.

Ankle SprainsBrooklyn Nets Deron Williams is recovering from a third sprained ankle this season. Having already missed several games, Williams won't be on the court for quite some time. This is due to Williams receiving cortisone shots since the beginning of the start of last season, as his ankle issues have become an everyday affair.

 Editor Alex Raskin of the Wall Street Journal states that Williams signed a five-year $98 million deal with the Nets in 2012, and then hurt his left ankle while training with the U.S. Olympic team. In times past, Williams had suffered bone spurs and inflammation to the joints of his ankles. Williams went on to mention that two of his sprains were “bad luck,” and were a result of wrong landings. "When you jump, land on somebody's foot, I don't care who you are," Williams said after that pair of sprains.

If you sustained an ankle sprain, contact podiatrist Dr. Mayer Salama of Salama Foot Care. Dr. Salama can diagnose your problem and help to minimize your discomfort of your foot and ankle.

Ankle Sprains

Ankle sprains are quite painful and can limit your mobility. Although they are not completely unavoidable, wearing appropriately fitted shoes and stretching before physical activity can help lower your risk of incurring an injury. Ankle sprains occur when the ankle rolls over itself or twists in an awkward way, causing a ‘pop’ or ‘snap’ in the tendons around the ankle. Some causes of ankle sprains include:

· Walking
· Sports
· Previous Injuries

In addition to pain, ankle sprains are characterized by skin discoloration and swelling, which is the result of ligaments being stretched beyond their limits. Usually ankle sprains are not severe enough to warrant a trip to the emergency room as there are many home treatments available, including ACE bandages, pain relievers, medication, and of course the RICE (rest, ice, compression, elevation) method. However, if the ankle muscles or ligaments or damaged from a rip or tear, it is advisable to see a physician immediately, as the injury may require surgery.

If you have any questions, please contact one of our offices located in Farmington Hills, Dearborn, Clarkston, and Trenton, MI. We offer the newest diagnostic and treatment technologies for all your foot and ankle injuries.
