Broken Leg Injury

A broken leg is most commonly due to a motorcycle accident although, because of the nature of the sport, a broken leg can occur in football (soccer) and other contact sports. In the case of football-related injuries, the fractures are caused either by a twisting force when the foot is fixed or by a direct blow from an opponent. Depending on the mechanism of injury, the fracture pattern may be different.

Treatment decisions are largely dependent upon the type of fracture. If the fracture is closed, and the evidence from x-ray films show the two fragments to be in close proximity, then the orthopaedic consultant will bring fragments as close together as is possible (usually under anesthetic) and fit a plaster cast to immobilise the injury site. The patient may be admitted to hospital in order that the medical team can observe the tightness of the cast and the pressure on the leg.

The usual healing time for a mid-shaft Tibia and Fibula fracture treated with cast immobilisation is 12 to 16 weeks. This is followed by rehabilitation with a Chartered Physiotherapist to restore the range of ankle and knee movement, and to restore the muscle strength that is lost during the immobilisation period. Depending on the fracture type and its location the orthopaedic doctor may allow the use of a Removable Plastic Cast Walker instead of a plaster cast.

Common Broken Leg signs & symptoms:

  • Severe pain in the leg that is broken.
  • Deformity due to protruding bones.
  • Swelling and bruising down the broken leg.
