Injuries to the head, neck, or body of the talus can interfere with normal coupled motion of these joints and result in permanent pain, loss of motion, and deformity. Outcomes vary widely and are related to the degree of initial fracture displacement. Nondisplaced fractures have a favorable outcome in most cases. Posttraumatic hindfoot arthrosis has been reported to occur in more than 90% of patients with displaced talus fractures.This could be causing the pain.You should consult your physician regarding post traumatic hind foot arthrosis.
