Lisfranc Fracture Dislocation

Treatment

Plasters and Braces

If your LisFranc ligament has been strained and not completely torn, your doctor may decide that your injury does not need surgery and can be treated in either a plaster cast or a brace.

Avoid strenuous exercise for a length of time to avoid re-injuring the ligaments.

Surgery

Most LisFranc Injuries need to be treated with surgery. During the operation, your bones and joints will be realigned, and then fixed with a combination of screws, plates and wires.

Long-term pain

LisFranc injuries are usually very serious and often cause long-tern problems such as arthritis, pain and stiffness.
