Treating Fractures
and Breaks with Your Podiatrist

Fractures and breaks are bone injuries that can occur during sports, everyday activity, or when suffering direct trauma to your foot or ankle. It’s critically important that you have fractures and breaks diagnosed by your podiatrist in Boca Raton or Boynton Beach.

Fast and effective treatment can reduce the need for surgery while limiting long-term damage. At the Foot, Ankle & Leg Vein Center, we have experienced professionals who can treat foot and ankle injuries.

Common Types of Foot and Ankle Fractures

Fractures can occur as hairline fractures, stress fractures that occur over a longer period of time, or more complex fractures and breaks that affect several bones, or that snap and dislocate bones from their normal positions.

Some of the most Common types of Fractures and Breaks We treat include:

Pain is the most obvious symptom of a fracture. Bruising and swelling also occur, and you will likely be unable to place your full weight on your foot and ankle. Some injuries are so severe and debilitating that you won’t be able to walk without assistance.

Never ignore symptoms of pain, especially when they occur after intense physical activity or following a direct injury. The Foot, Ankle & Leg Vein Center will diagnose and treat all kinds of foot and ankle fractures and breaks.

How We Diagnose Fractures and Breaks

Physical examination and evaluation of your symptoms can indicate a fracture or complete break of a bone. X-ray imaging can reveal the nature and extent of an injury. In some cases, an MRI or CT scan will be needed to complete the diagnosis.

Our trained podiatrists will use all available diagnostic tools to identify the type of injury and develop an effective treatment plan. Some treatments are conservative and can include rest, icing, compression, and the use of custom orthotic devices to set the foot and ankle to allow for healing.

Surgical procedures may be necessary for complex breaks and to avoid complications and long-term loss of mobility.
