Monitoring recovery following syndesmosis sprain: a case report.


:A sprain to the tibial-fibular syndesmosis often results in prolonged rehabilitation or surgical intervention before recovery occurs. This paper documents gait recovery both before and after surgery for a syndesmosis sprain. Ground reaction force (GRF) data were available before injury and before surgery. Data were also collected every 3 days from 4 days to 4 months after syndesmosis screw removal (8 weeks after surgery). Weightbearing during the stance phase of gait did not approach normal values until approximately 4 months after syndesmosis screw removal. The push-off phase of gait also was slow to recover. When it was possible for the subject to use one or two crutches, differences in GRF were evident, such that walking with one crutch demonstrated increased force production at the ground. Bracing the ankle with a semirigid brace increased GRF, whereas a boot-type lace-up brace resulted in decreased GRF. In this case report of a combined ankle and syndesmosis sprain, results suggest the weightbearing and push-off force were seriously compromised. Decreasing the number of walking assistive devices and wearing a semirigid ankle brace increased the amount of weightbearing through the affected leg and may have merit in encouraging muscle function.
