Foot Ankle Injuries Due to Vehicle Accidents

  • By Dr. Aprajita Nakra Contributing EditorAs
    Featured in Attorney At Law Magazine
  • Foot and ankle injuries due to motor vehicle
    accidents (MVAs) present unique challenges to the
    astute foot and ankle physician. Even more
    challenging than the pathology, however, is the
    ability to return to pre-injury level.

  • Published medical literature provides strong
    evidence for risk of post-traumatic arthritis
    after a heel bone (calcaneus) fracture this
    post-MVA condition can manifest as residual
    deformity and resulting arthritis, thus
    precluding the ability to rapidly return to
    pre-accident levels. Hence it is imperative that
    an erudite foot and ankle clinician ascertain the
    appropriate treatment and long-term prognosis of
    foot and ankle injuries due to MVAs.

  • The spectrum of foot and ankle injuries due to
    MVAs can be empirically divided into sprains
    (soft tissue injuries involving tendons and
    ligaments) and fractures. Sprains and fractures
    can be further classified into forefoot, midfoot
    and ankle.
