This site is designed to help you understand and make informed choices about treatment options.
You will know if your foot injury is serious because of very simple reasons. For example, if the next day the pain is better, the injury is most likely not serious. If there are other dangerous signs like intense pain with swelling, elevated temperature, calf pain, shortness of breath, fever, then a visit to the emergency room or urgent care center is warranted.
The easiest bone to break in your foot is a toe, for two reasons. First is the fact that they are in the front of the foot and the first part of the foot to come in contact with an inanimate object when walking. The second is that they’re smaller and thinner in comparison to the other bones of the foot, making them more susceptible to injury.
You can tell if you broke your foot and not just sprained it with several clues. First and most obvious is feeling pain directly on the bone and with movement at the fracture site, or a visually unnatural angle of the bone. Either an X-ray or MRI can confirm the diagnosis of a displaced fracture, non-displaced fracture, or stress fracture. Other signs include excessive bruising, pain, and swelling.
Foot injuries that require surgery are diverse, but the most common are fractures that are either displaced (separated), comminuted (multiple fragments), or open (bone or deep structures exposed). Other foot injuries that require surgery are more obvious like open wounds (with or without infection or drainage), foreign bodies, puncture wounds, gangrene, and serious ligament, tendon, or muscle injuries (tear or rupture).
Seeking the right care for foot and ankle-related trauma is essential. In order to get back on your feet and live your life pain-free, you need to get professional, quality surgical care. That’s where we come in. Contact the experts at Moore Foot and Ankle Specialists to take care of your trauma surgery needs.
