Toe and Forefoot Fractures

Nearly One-fourth of all the Bones are in the Feet

Nearly one-fourth of all the bones in your body are in your feet, which provide you with both support and movement. A broken (fractured) bone in your forefoot (metatarsals) or in one of your toes (phalanges) is often painful but rarely disabling. Most of the time, these injuries heal without operative treatment.

Signs and Symptoms of a Sprained Foot

Sudden Onset of Pain

Patients with a sprained foot often experience a sudden onset of pain during the causative activity. However, patients may also experience pain and stiffness after the provocative activity, particularly the next morning. Symptoms may be felt on the top, bottom or sides of the affected joint. Occasionally pain may be referred into the toes or ankle on the affected side.
