os trigonum

Here it is in a nutshell. My daughter who is "13" is a competitive cheerleader. She was doing a tumbling sequence and came out of her twist and hit short on the floor. She has been to the sports medicine dr and to the orthopedic. We have had two diagnoses - one she has facture her ostrignoum the other she bruised it. She has had regular x-rays and a MRI. They also indicated she has fluid build up. One day we need to have surgery and the next she just bruised it. The orthopedic put her in a cast for two weeks with no weight and will revisit it after the two weeks.
I guess my question and you probally won't be able to give me answer because you don't have the films to look at. How can one doctor see a facture and one can't. I just really confused!!!!

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
