There are 26 bones in the foot. Certain activities or injuries can cause a fracture, or “broken” bone. Pain, swelling, redness, and even bruising are signs of a possible fracture.
Fractures of the foot can be diagnosed by x-rays or other studies. The location, severity and alignment of the fracture will help determine whether to proceed with conservative care or if surgical intervention is warranted.
