There are 26 bones in the foot. These bones support our weight and allow us to walk and run. Certain activities or injuries can cause a fracture, or break, in one or more of these bones. Pain, swelling, redness and even bruising are signs of a possible fracture.
Foot Fracture Diagnosis
Fractures of the foot can be diagnosed by x-rays or other studies.
Foot Fracture Treatment
Our Peoria AZ Foot Doctor and Ankle Specialists foot and ankle surgeon can determine the best treatment course. Rest, icing and immobilization are often the treatments; however, surgery is sometimes necessary to repair the fracture.
