    Damaged subtalar joint

    Do you have a damaged subtalar joint

    The subtalar joint is between the talus and calcaneus in your ankle. A damaged subtalar joint, or the talocalcaneal joint as it is also known, can be caused by a sports injury, as it is this joint (there are three in the foot) which allows movements called eversions and inversions. When your foot twists inwards, this is an example of an inversion movement. An eversion movement is when your foot twists outwards.

    It is inversion movements which seem to result in a damaged subtalar joint more frequently than eversion movements. One of the most common problems with the subtalar joint is caused by arthritis over a prolonged period of time. A damaged subtalar joint could have been due to a sprain which you might have had while at work, while working out in the gym or while doing a sport.

    If you have a damaged subtalar joint because of a slip, trip or fall, wherever it occurred, you may be able to file a personal injury compensation claim. Slips, trips and falls may occur in a public place, such as a park, cinema or restaurant. If you suffer a damaged subtalar joint after a fall in one such place, then you should have the accident logged in the accident book by a member of staff. If you fell over a piece of broken paving in the street, the accident should be reported to the police and your local authority, who are responsible for the upkeep of roads and pavements.

    Accidents and personal injury compensation claims

    If you have a damaged subtalar joint and the damage was caused in an accident which was not your fault, you may have grounds for filing a personal injury compensation claim. To make a claim, you need to have had the accident within the last three years. You and your accident solicitor need to be able to prove that the accident or illness was caused by another person’s negligence.
