A 22-year-old-male attends the Emergency Department (ED) after injuring his foot during a football match. He tells you he is unable to weight-bear.

This was his first game back after suffering a prolonged injury on the contralateral limb, and on questioning, he hasnt been compliant with physiotherapy, nor followed any specific return to sport protocol.

He states he was sprinting for the ball in the first few minutes, and felt his foot go, and then fell to the ground.

His foot is swollen and tender across the midfoot dorsum, predominantly over the medial aspect but there is no visible bruising. Movement of his medial toes is painful, but possible, and he is distally neurovascularly intact.
