Fractures: General Fracture & Stress Fractures

There are two main types of fractures in the feet, stress fractures and general bone fractures. Stress fractures are usually caused by repetitive stress, usually from a suddenly increased exercise routine, improper training techniques, or a change in surface. Bone fractures are usually a result of trauma.

There are many other, more specific types of fractures in the feet because of their complex nature, such as a fifth metatarsal fracture.

If you have suffered trauma to your foot, you should see a podiatrist to make sure it is not a serious injury and that it is okay to continue your regular activities. If you continue activity on a fractured foot, you may cause more damage to your foot.

Symptoms of a foot fracture may include:

If you are experiencing these symptoms and believe you may have suffered a fracture, you should have the foot evaluated. Also, be aware that you may not always have all the symptoms even if you have had trauma to your foot and have a fracture.

If you have injured your foot or ankle and would like to set up an appointment, please call our office at (615) 220-8788 or at our toll-free number 888-713-0906. You can also set up an appointment online.
