The fibular bone is situated in the lower leg, the smaller of the two bones found there, and is joined to the ankle and the other lower leg bone, the tibia.
How a fractured fibular can happen
If you go over on your ankle when you are walking, or if you receive a sudden impact, that is when your fibular becomes fractured. It can occur if you jump from a height and you land awkwardly, or if you take part in combat sports. It can also happen if you do anything that causes stress to the bone. You may be able to make a no win no fee* in Comberton injury claim if you fracture your fibular in an accident that wasn’t your fault.
The symptoms are usually a sudden onset of pain where the fracture has occurred, which would probably make you unable to walk or cause you to have a limp. Also in the area of the fracture will be bruising and swelling, but the sudden sharp pain usually subsides quite quickly, although you will be left with an ache.
How to find out if you have broken your fibular
At the hospital they should be able to confirm a fracture through an x-ray, but in more complicated cases an MRI scan or CT scan may be necessary.
Once the fracture has healed completely, generally that should be all, but you may need physiotherapy. To quicken the recovery it can include:
- Exercises to improve strength and flexibility
- Ice or heat treatment
- Soft tissue massage
- Joint mobilisation
- The use of crutches
- Activity modification
- Taping or bracing
- A protective boot
