What Is the Treatment for a Foot Fracture?
Foot fracture treatment varies according to the type of fracture. Options include:
• Offloading involves wearing a cast or boot to help relieve pressure on the injured foot, allowing it to rest.
• Compression and elevation help reduce swelling.
• Ice and anti-inflammatory medications help reduce inflammation and pain.
It takes around six to eight weeks for a foot fracture to heal.
Do Foot Fractures Require Surgery?
The majority of foot fractures do not require surgery. However, as with other treatment options, the answer depends on the type of fracture. For example, athletes may require surgery to return full function to the foot.
