The Arizona Wildcats lost their running back, J.J. Taylor, as he sustained a broken ankle in late September. The injury was originally thought to be a sprained ankle, sustained during the second half of the loss to the Washington Huskies. At the time, it was thought that either Zach Green or Tyrell Johnson would replace him.

Broken ankles require immediate treatment. If you have any concerns about your feet and ankles, contact Dr. Greg Khaimov, DPM of Foot and Ankle Center of Fort Lee, LLC. Our doctor will treat your foot and ankle needs.

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.

Geathers is expected to miss most, if not all of the preseason. Rookie T.J. Green is scheduled to fill Geather’s spot until he fully recovers. This could be an opportunity for Green to earn an important role on the team.

Broken Foot Causes, Symptoms, and Treatment

A broken foot is caused by one of the bones in the foot typically breaking when bended, crushed, or stretched beyond its natural capabilities. Usually the location of the fracture indicates how the break occurred, whether it was through an object, fall, or any other type of injury. 

Common Symptoms of Broken Feet:

·      Bruising

·      Pain

·      Redness

·      Swelling

·      Blue (foot)

·      Numbness

·      Cold

·      Misshapen

·      Cuts

·      Deformities

Those that suspect they have a broken foot shoot seek urgent medical attention where a medical professional could diagnose the severity.

Treatment for broken bones varies depending on the cause, severity and location. Some will require the use of splints, casts or crutches while others could even involve surgery to repair the broken bones. Personal care includes the use of ice and keeping the foot stabilized and elevated.
