Broken Foot Directory
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. You will likely be given crutches to aid in walking while the foot heals.
