|I fractured my cuboid in April 2012. I am 50yrs old and very active. My injury seemed to be improving well until I developed synovitis which I had injected in November. All improving until 2wks ago when for some reason my ankle at the back seemed to twang and I was unable to walk on it for a couple of days. Physio checked it for me it seemed stable. But today the same thing has happened again and I have been wearing a small ankle brace. I am a nurse on my feet for long periods of time. I had ultrasound which showed the synovitis and a few minor issues with the peroneal tendons (November) Should I get further investigations.
Whats your ideas and views. Thank you,

For your cuboid fracture…
Go see a Board Certified Podiatrist who is the best trained in cuboid fracture care…
The peroneal tendon which runs behind the ankle & under the cuboid is irritated. An ankle brace with an ace wrap up the leg-or possibly a comfortable walker to immobilize. This will take 4-6 weeks. After work-gentle ROM or even at lunchtime to get out of moderate to complete immobilization. May need to wear an orthotic- since the peroneal tendon raises & lowers the arch. The fact that you are telling these are minor issues-when they appear to be the culprit suggest a second opinion.
