Tibial Plataeu (Tibia – lower leg Fractures)

Tibia fracture is a common injury that occurs when there is a break or crack in the tibia bone, which is the larger of the two bones in the lower leg. The tibia is a weight-bearing bone that runs from the knee joint to the ankle joint, and it is responsible for supporting a significant portion of the body's weight during standing, walking, and other activities.



  • Trauma, falls, sports injuries, and degenerative changes due to age.


  • The symptoms of a tibia fracture can vary depending on the severity and location.
  • Pain, swelling, bruising, and difficulty bearing weight on the affected leg.
  • Fracture may be visible or palpable as a deformity in the leg.
  • Severe fracture involving the joint surface, may also lead to joint instability.


  • Depends on the severity and location of the fracture, as well as the patient’s health
  • Conservative measures such as immobilization with a cast or brace, rest
  • Physical therapy may be sufficient to promote healing and restore function.
  • Severe fractures may require surgical intervention, such as internal fixation.

Recovery from a tibia fracture can be a lengthy process, and may involve several months of physical therapy and rehabilitation to restore strength, flexibility, and mobility in the affected leg. In some cases, long-term complications such as arthritis or joint instability may persist even after the fracture has healed, and ongoing monitoring and management may be necessary to ensure optimal outcomes.
