Do you have extreme pain in your ankle? Does your ankle look crooked or angled? As a result of high-energy impact on the ankle, Pilon fractures are very painful with the injured person being unable to balance on the foot that has been hurt. Pilon in French means pestle which is used for pounding or crushing ingredients. In a Pilon fracture, the bones of the ankle are crushed because of the high-impact injury with the shin bone or tibia and in some cases, the tibia and the fibula at the ankle being broken. The podiatrists at Cupertino Podiatry near San Jose, California are experienced and expert doctors who offer professional medical advice, immediate professional help, care, precise diagnosis and detailed follow up.

Pilon fractures besides being a painful condition also display various symptoms such as a bluish and reddish discoloration, bruising, swelling, tender to touch, where no weight can be balanced on the injured foot and increasing chances of infection and blisters. Pilon fractures occur when there are motorbike collisions, falling from a height and skiing. With risk factors involved, Pilon fractures can easily happen to people who are aged 35-40 years. With senior people and children being at much less risk, there are many cases where the elderly have gone through a painful Pilon fracture with men being at more risk than women. With airbags protecting the upper chest and not the legs during crashes, the legs get injured easily and are prone to Pilon fractures. Offering years of experience, the podiatrists at the Cupertino clinic treat their patients with utmost care and detailed examination to offer relief so that they can go back to their original lifestyle.

Experience a Spectrum of Sound Care

The podiatrists at the Cupertino clinic near San Jose will examine the injured area and find out with in-depth analysis as to where the pain occur the most. The podiatrists at the clinic in Cupertino will check for a pulse to see that the blood supply is not cut off and palpate the bruised areas to see if the swelling has spread and will also check if surgery is necessary. The podiatrists will recommend X-rays and scans of the ankle, leg and foot with information on whether surgery would be necessary. Nonsurgical treatment involves casts and splints with the podiatrists at the clinic in Cupertino carefully monitoring the stages of healing of the Pilon fracture, with advice on not to bear too much weight on the injured foot and replacing the cast with a removable brace. If the ankle has been seriously hurt and not in place, the podiatrists would suggest surgery with metal implants such as screws and plates. Surgery would be deferred if there is bruising and swelling with intake of blood thinners to prevent clotting.

With sound advice on rehabilitation of the injured ankle, the podiatrists at the Cupertino clinic would recommend exercises once the ankle starts healing, to increase the range of motion of the ankle. The complications after a Pilon fracture would be bone healing problems, stiffness, ankle arthritis, wound healing, nerve or blood vessel damage, plates and screws that are painful and infection. The patient would be advised not to indulge in high-energy impact activities and to rest as much as possible with advice on a longer period of rehabilitation if the patient has a manual labor job.
