Foot Fracture

On Sunday i Had a motorcycle accident, the result is that i fractured my right perone.

One doctor told me that i dont needed to use any boot or any kind of immobilization.

I run at least 30 miles a week. Am i gonna be able to run again?

(30 Y.O)

Hi there!

The perone/ fibula is a non-weight bearing bone of the lower leg and most fractures do not require treatment. It is likely to heal well even without immobilization. While running/ strenuous activities are best avoided for a few weeks, the fracture should not affect running or other physical activities.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
