Torn Fascia

Posted by Lorinda N on 2/02/04 at 20:00 (143504)

Today I think I tore my fascia. Do I need to see my doctor..... should there be some pain?... I was walking and I felt a rip and my son said he heard it.... Does it need to be wrapped or something?

Lorinda,

Of course you should see a doctor, otherwise you have no idea what you are treating or the extent of the injury.

I think I must have been half asleep when I wrote that...... I realize I need to see my doc...... what I am wondering is ..... what to expect. If it is torn.... do they usually cast it?.... walking boot?..... nothing at all?..... I have an appt... in the morning........
thanks,,,,,, Lorinda
