Hello 2weeks ago I tore my LOWER LEG MUCSLE AT MY LATERAL SIDE (PAIN FROM BACK OF KNEE TO 5TH METATARSAL )
NO PLANTAR AND DORSAL FLEXON BRUISES AT FRONT AND BACK OF LOWER LEG, KNEE LOCKS I'm now in a hard cast
after x rays (ok) and tested for blood clots (ok) I go to phycical tharapy in two weeks
My concern is why my 5th metatarsal is afected from this injury ? how long does a mucsle tear take to heal ?
Any opintons and advise will help me through this . Thanks Anthony P
