Foot Injury and Ankle Injury - Podiatrist in Philadelphia, Roxborough, PA - Albert Giagnacova, DPM
Podiatrist Dr. Albert Giagnacova of Next Step Podiatry discusses the symptoms, causes and treatments for Foot and Ankle Injury.
Ankle and Foot Injury
Broken ankles are a very serious injury which, if not properly treated, can lead to continuous pain and an inability to walk. An ankle is made up of at least three major bones--the tibia, fibula, and talus. The tibia and fibula are the two bones that connect to your knees. They sit directly upon the talus bone, protected by a fibrous membrane that allows slight movement in our ankle joint. When the ankle is broken, it is because the foot rolled under or twisted too far, causing one or more of these three bones to break.
