A 21 y/o college basketball player lands on another players foot after jumping up for a rebound and rolls his ankle (the athlete demonstrates that his ankle was inverted at the time of the injury). The player is able to walk away from the injury and presents to PT 2 days later. Upon evaluation, the athlete has tenderness in the area of his ATFL, his navicular, and has no tenderness to palpation noted at the base of the CFL, PTFL, base of the 5th metatarsal, or either malleoli. What is the most appropriate initial course of action for this athlete and why?
Refer for x-ray imaging. The patient meets the criteria for the Ottawa Ankle Rules (TTP at the navicular). Even though other factors suggest he might not have a fracture, if the patient meets any of the Ottawa Ankle Rules criteria, it is most appropriate to refer to assure that you don't miss any more significant pathology (namely fractures).
