Did You Know a Bone 🦴 Could Break in Your Foot 👣 Without an Injury👩🏽🦽?
It definitely seems strange, but it’s true.
The bones most prone to this are called the Metatarsals. We have 5 of these bones in each foot.
The central 3 metatarsal bones are where this occurs most.
The sudden onset of pain, with or without swelling on the top of your foot, could be a broken bone.
If you have pain in this area, especially if there’s swelling, it is in your best interest to avoid , jumping, and yoga .
This type of broken bone won’t heal without some form of removable boot .
The reason to have your foot x-rayed and treated quickly is to prevent the bone from displacing.
Displacing means the bone isn’t in the best alignment to heal quickly.
We’ve seen a number of these broken bones take 6 months to heal because the patients waited too long to be treated .
Surgery was needed in a few instances. Who wants that
The moral to the story is you can break a bone in your foot without an injury🦽.
To avoid a potentially long healing process, have us diagnose and treat the condition quickly.
We want to keep you active.
