Jaba Chamberlain suffers Open Dislocation of the Subtalar Joint

Jaba Chamberlain of the New York Yankees injured his foot on a trampoline this week while playing with his son. His subtalar joint (which is deep in the foot and in the area of the heel bone) was dislocated or moved out of position. During the injury, there was a break in the skin or opening, which increases the risk of infection, as bone is exposed. Any dislocations or broken bones that involve breaks in the skin are very serious and most be treated with antibiotics immediately. For more information on this topic and Jaba Chamberlain's injury, please review the articles on my Facebook page, Mary Ann Bender/Advanced Physical Medicine.
