Our user asked: "I have been in cast for 6 weeeks from a broken fibula and just had removed yesterday. When I walk I have A LOT of pain in my heel and feels like there is a pebble underneath, I mentioned to DR. yesterday but he did not seem concerned or have an answer. IS this common or normal and if so will it get better with physical therapy"

Ask a PT Response: "It is common to experience pain with your type of injury after having the cast removed. The fibula along with the tibia and talus form the ankle joint which is stressed with weight bearing. I would anticipate PT should be effective with helping you alleviate the pain as you continue to recover. Gait training, range of motion, stretching, joint mobilization, strengthening are among many other procedures your PT will work on with you to help you achieve your prior level of function. Best of luck to you."
