    Hi
    Even thought ive been a pod for many years i havent really seen this injury however my 17 year old son has just been diagnosed with a full thickness of the anterior tibiofib ligament. There is no obvious widening of the joint space
    I have had him in a boot since the injury which occured at football 16 days ago. Just wondering what others have done for such an injury and if surgery is necessary
    Im hoping the boot for every step will help but am really interested in other opinions
    Thanks in advance for your time
    Regards, Annie

    Saw a lot of ankle trauma ... isolated injuries of this type are uncommon but we'd screen for it any ankle injury. Recovery is a pain and likely protracted and may require follow up with injection therapy etc. Important the ankle is evaluated with appropriate stress XR views to know if there's instability

    there has been no separation of the bones and he is currently in a boot with crutches
    I am hoping this is enough and will follow up further in a month with another US or MRI if needed
    thank you again Dieter

    Annie, just to be clear -the separation will show only if the segment is stressed under XR
