A 38-year-old man presents to an urgent care center and reports pain in his right heel and ankle that he describes as severe enough that he cannot walk on the foot. He says that the pain began the previous evening when he landed on the group after jumping out of a second-floor window on a dare. He has some minimal paresthesia, but he has no fever, vomiting, head trauma, head or neck pain, or chest or abdominal pain.
