Foot fractures are common. They may be caused by falls, twisting, or direct impact of a foot against a hard object. Foot fractures cause considerable pain, which is almost always made worse by attempting to walk or put weight on the foot. An x-ray is often needed to evaluate the severity of the fracture.
Treatment for a broken foot depends on the exact site and severity of the fracture. A severely broken foot may require surgery to maintain proper position during healing.
If you are concerned that you may have a foot fracture please request an appointment at Bigfoot Podiatry or give us a call at (360) 616-9563 to schedule.
