Patient : Hey Doc, I am a high school athlete and I consider myself to be an above average jumper and overall athlete. After landing from a dunk in practice saturday I fractured my fibula and it is non displaced. I am fairly confident it can be healed adequately in 6-8 weeks plus rehab but I am also a triple jumper in track and wanted to compete in the spring for at least some of the season. Do you think I can get back to being an explosive athlete by April or May, with little or no complications? Thanks much appreciated!
