Fibula fractures: common injuries in Football
Fibula fractures are quite common in football and frequently occur after a physical challenge where a direct blow is taken to the shaft of the bone; normally in the middle third as in Casemiro’s case if it’s an isolated break. If the fracture is in the lower third then this can be a complication of ankle injuries, or if the break is in the upper third of the fibula this can arise in conjunction with knee injuries.
