Are you an athlete who participates in skiing, snowboarding, or other high-energy sports? If so, you may be at an increased risk of sustaining a calcaneal fracture. Also called a broken or fractured heel, calcaneal fractures can cause constant, consistent pain, swelling and the inability to walk. Foot and ankle specialists, Doctors Thomas Haytmanek and Jonathon Backus have diagnosed and treated many patients in Vail, Aspen, and the surrounding Denver, Colorado communities who have experienced a heel fracture.
