Ankle Fracture
SteveR101 posted:
My son has fractured his fibula in two places. Torn ligaments, etc. He will have surgery. He is very active, runs long distance, triathlons, etc. What are the risks to his full recovery? How much risk later in life? Should expect that he will be able to walk and run normally? How big a risk is arthritis?

Remember to replace your running shoes every 300-400- miles or every 6 months. Many running related injuries are due to worn out footwear. More
