Foot fractures can be very painful. I know; I help people with the condition all the time. I would like to give you a few tips for proper treatment of a foot fracture. Foot fractures must be addressed as quickly as possible, preferably when the pain and swelling first begin. Not only can bones grow back together incorrectly, but foot fractures can turn into severe and chronic arthritis down the road if left untreated. Furthermore, putting repeated pressure on the fracture can result in a complete break. You need to get off of your feet as much as possible.
If you're looking for a foot doctor to help you with a suspected fracture, I'd love to assist you. I invite you to visit us at Integrative Foot and Ankle Centers of Washington at any of our offices located in Kirkland, Everett, Renton and Redmond and let's take a look!
