NFL News: Broncos’ Brandon Marshall Plays with Broken Screw in Foot After Lisfranc Surgery

Posted by on Wednesday, November 11th, 2015

Brandon Marshall is one heck of a rehabilitation recovery story. Despite playing with a broken screw in his foot following surgical repair for a lisfranc injury, he remains the Denver Bronco’s “leading tackler” and “the NFL’s top inside linebacker” as well.1http://denver.cbslocal.com/2015/10/01/brandon-marshall-is-broncos-leading-tackler-despite-broken-screw-in-foot/ Doctors at The Center for Podiatric Care and Sports Medicine in NYC feel this story is an excellent example of what can be achieved through diligent rehabilitation, “taking it one day at a time,” and making the hard calls necessary to get back to the game full-strength.

Does Triathlete Paula Findlay Have a Lisfranc Injury?

Posted by on Wednesday, September 30th, 2015

Even though Paula Findlay was on the program cover, the poster, and the website homepage promoting the ITU World Triathlon in Edmonton, Alberta, she did not compete in this year’s event. The champion gold medalist had to withdraw at the last minute due to a mysterious foot injury she suffered a few weeks ago. Though mum’s the word on the particulars and some local media reported persistent ankle pain, we wonder if she may have damaged her Lisfranc ligament, which is a common type of triathlete injury.
