A human foot has 26 bones. A broken foot often occurs due to kicking something, falling and landing on your feet, spraining your ankle, and more. Symptoms include pain, bruising, and swelling. A doctor can sometimes treat a broken foot with a splint. You will need to rest and apply ice to the area. Surgical repair may be required in some cases.
