Description: Jeter The 38-year-old Yankees shortstop was seen sporting an ankle brace and a slightly fuller figure on Thursday at a south Beach, Miami hotel. Jeter’s broken ankle has given him one more extra problem to worry about as limited mobility has restricted him to exercise, therefore making him gain more weight. According to Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman, Jeter’s broken ankle has put him on a non-weight bearing situation that will likely last until January. His recovery period is estimated to be three months, since his injury occurred in October, and should be ready to play at the start of the new season.

Suffering a fracture or break in an ankle as Jeter did, will undoubtedly require the proper care to heal properly. If you think you have sustained an ankle injury such as this you should seek out a podiatrist such as Dr. Michael Stein of Foot Doctor of the East Bay. Dr. Stein will diagnose any injuries you may have as well as provide you with treatment options that work for you.

Broken Ankles

The ankle consists of three bones- the tibia, the fibula, and the talus. The tibia and the fibula are the two bones that connect to your knees. They sit directly above the talus bone, which is protected by a fibrous membrane and allows slight movement in the ankle joint. A break usually occurs in one of these bones after the foot is twisted too far, a strong impact like jumping from a great height, or repeated stresses like running.

Diagnosis

If you suffer an ankle injury, it is essential that you receive a correct diagnosis. One of the first signs that the ankle is broken is an inability to put any weight on it. There will often be severe bruising and swelling at the sight of the injury. Your doctor may also order an x-ray be taken to determine the exact location and extent of the injury.
