    Spiral fibula fracture


    Spiral fibula fracture

    The fibula is in the lower leg, and one of two bones running parallel below the knee; the other is the tibia. It’s the latter that really holds your weight. The fibula serves as an attachment point for muscles and ligaments at the ankle level of the legs. You can even take bone from it for grafts without affecting the leg’s overall structural stability.

    Of the two bones, you are more likely to break the tibia. However, quite frequently, if you fracture a fibula you may also break the tibia at the same time. A spiral fibula fracture happens where the structure of the bone cannot withstand a twisting force (also called torsion) and so a break occurs in a spiral way.

    Spiral fibula fractures are especially common after skiing accidents, and when playing other sports which mean coming into physical contact with other players, especially games like rugby and football.

    What to do after a spiral fibula fracture

    If you’ve been unlucky enough to experience a spiral fibula fracture within the last three years through no fault of your own, you may be entitled to claim personal injury compensation for your injury.

    Far from being about milking the so-called ‘compensation culture’ for all it’s worth, this is about claiming the money that’s rightfully yours and which you may well need in the wake of an accident for things like travel to medical appointments, or to live off if your injury means you are unable to work.
