    Hi all,

    Just found this site and it’s brilliant!

    I injured my knee playing football a few weeks ago and finally got my MRI scan results today. According to the report, I have an impaction fracture of the lateral tibial plateau as well as a tear in the anterior horn of the lateral meniscus.

    Whilst my doctor clearly explained the torn meniscus in our chat, he did not make it clear that I had a fracture (he was more referring to bone bruising). My question is whether or not an impaction fracture is actually a fracture in the normal sense or not? I am very confused as to why he didn’t make this clear in our chat.

    If anyone can help, it would be much appreciated!

      Can you return and ask your doctor to show your images and explain the damage? We often don’t know the questions we need answered until we have had time to reflect. Perhaps you could ask about the plan for healing the “impaction” fracture.

      Mend well,
