Cause of Accident: Motor Vehicle Injury – While riding his motorized scooter down the street, a car pulled out in front of Patient X which resulted in a collision.
Injury: Fractured distal fibula and tibia bones
Overview: His leg required surgery and several plates and screws were used to secure the bones. The two longer screws that fixed the tibia and fibula together were removed after about 3 months to allow for better movement of the two bones. Subsequent movement has been much better. Patient still has quite a bit of stiffness and pain primarily on the lateral side where there is still quite a bit of hardware. This hardware is to remain as long as it does not create any pain or other problems.
Treatment: Physiotherapy treatment consists of manual therapy and strengthening exercises.
