The talus bone is an important bone for walking, and making sure it heals correctly is very important. 

The bone can be broken from car accidents, falls, or not wearing proper ankle support in sports like ice skating or snowboarding.

If the parts of the bone are aligned, your doctor can put you in a cast and give you crutches so you don't put weight on your foot. The bone can heal without surgery.

Physical therapy might be needed after the bone has healed.

If the parts of the bone have moved out of place, surgery is required.
