    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Anyone ever get a misaligned fibula?

    I rolled my ankle off of some high-heeled shoes back in July. I went to a foot doctor, and he claimed nothing was wrong with me, because the x rays didn't show a fracture. Thanks, doc.

    I went to a physical therapist, who actually took some time with me, and he reckoned that I had torn the muscles in my foot that keep my fibula stuck in my ankle joint. So now, I have to take a piece of ultra-strong Leukotape and wrap it around my ankle and leg to get the bone to stay in place. It feels better now than it did when I first got injured, but it's still a long way from being perfect.

    I can move my foot up and down without a problem, but I can't curl my foot inwards without pushing the bone back in, and this often causes serious physical discomfort and/or pain.

    I'm just wondering if anyone else has had this problem, and if it ever healed all the way...

    *sigh*

    Mind the doofuses, they don't really mean any harm.

    I don't think I've had that unique problem, but my feet like, apprently, move around on my ankles more than they're supposed to. Gotta love soccer. Makes for a fun party trick, at least.

    If it makes it wacky, don't do it, obviously. (too lazy to find a dunce-cap image) It's because I'm blonde, I swear.

    So, anyway, listen to your PT. Use what you need to to support it. In my experience, ankle injuries are more vulnurable to re-injury than anything I've hurt. Don't mess around with leg ****. You only get two, until you're 50, and then they'll start replacing them every few years. Mwahaha, I'll probably end up with a new knee at like 25.

    Did I have a point? Oh well. Listen to those who actually know what they're talking about.

    I'm really not sure. I think all the PT could tell was that something wasn't right in there. The doctor was so damned worthless for anything (he made me wait in his stupid little office for a whole hour)... I had to do exercises to strengthen the muscles around the ankle area, which I imagine was supposed to help keep it stuck in there? I also had to practice standing on one foot, with my eyes closed, to help gain stability. I stopped going to the PT, which was silly on my part, but I felt like it was making it worse to walk around campus all day, and then go screw it up at the appointments.

    But, on the bright side, my order of Leukotape came in today, and I can just tape my leg together! hoorah!

    I will probably make another doctor's appointment, but to someone who won't dick me around.

    You realize that tendons connect a bone to a muscle right? That means if two connect to the Talus, and one to the Calcaneous, then none of them attach to the fibula, right?

    "Yeah, I just didnt' know the name of the muscle :x (I probably should've checked in Gray's Anatomy before I replied eh?)"

    Judging from your description of the injury and the mechanism of it, you have probably torn your ATF (Anterior TaloFibular ligament). The calcaneofibular ligament may also be damaged.

    NOTE: these are ligaments, connecting bone with bone.

    I'm not an expert on this field.. yet ( ask me again in 5 years..)
