A break in one or more of the bones in the foot


Usually occurs after an injury. Pain, trouble or inability to walk, swelling, and bruising

Treatment Options

After xrays to confirm which bones are broken, the typical course of a simple break is to cast with crutches or place the foot in a walking boot depending on the extent of the break. If the bones are out of place you may need surgery.

Treatment Option Description (with Duration)

It takes 6-8 week for bone to heal typically. If surgery is not needed, you will either be casted or in a walking boot to all the bones to heal. If surgery is required, the bone will be fixed with screws or plates and then you will be casted or placed in a boot for 6-8 weeks.

Expected Outcome

With compliance with the treatment plan, the fracture should mend in 6-8 weeks and you will be able to return to normal activities after physical therapy.

Maintaining a healthy diet and refraining from smoking will help provide the bone with the best environment for healing but it take bone 6-8 weeks to heal. Trying to do activity on a broken bone prematurely can lead to longterm issues with structure and function.

If the bone is out of place, it will not be able to heal properly. Making sure that the bone is put into the proper alignment is what allows healing to take place. If the bone is already in place, it won't require surgery. If it is out of place surgery will be used to put it back in place.
