Tibial Shaft Fracture
A fracture that occurs to the long bone that runs below the knee and above the ankle (tibia). Tibial shaft fractures are often caused by high-energy collisions, such as motor vehicle accidents and falling while playing sports such as skiing or soccer. Common symptoms include: pain, inability to walk or put weight on the leg, the bone protruding through a break in the skin, or a loss of feeling in the foot.
