Over 2 million legs are fractured each year in the U.S.
The three most common types of leg fractures are:
- Patella (knee cap)
- Tibia/Fibula (lower leg)
The most common cause of fractures is falling, or being hit, such as in sports injuries.
Foot injuries and fractures can result in a cast also.
You broke your foot or leg. Months later, it still feels unsteady, hurts or is weak. What else might be going on?
There are so many ways you might have ended up with a cast on your leg, usually from broken bones in your foot, ankle, lower leg, or upper leg.
