Treating Calcaneous Fractures / Heel Bone Fractures

Calcaneous fractures refers to fractures of the heel bone. There are many fractures that fall under this category, such as stable, displaced, open, closed, and comminuted fractures. Fractures can be sustained through a variety of activities, but commonly occur due to high impact collisions, falls, or twists. Some of the symptoms of a calcaneous fracture are pain, bruising, and heel deformity. There are both surgical and nonsurgical treatments available to patients, depending on the extent of the fracture.
