Despite a broken right foot, Ryan McDonagh of the New York Rangers has still successfully played through his injury and worked tirelessly through the summer to completely rehabilitate and enter training camp without issue. “It’s good. It feels pretty much normal now,” he shared. “I’m not even really thinking about (the foot) on a daily basis, so it’s nice.” Luckily for McDonagh the bone was healing normally on its own, allowing the athlete to avoid surgery and playing with plates in his foot.    

A broken foot requires immediate medical attention and treatment to prevent exacerbation. If you are seeking treatment for a broken foot, visit one of our podiatrists from Foot Doctor of the East Bay. Our doctors will assess your injury and provide you with quality treatment.

Broken Foot Causes, Symptoms, and Treatment

A broken foot is caused by one of the bones in the foot typically breaking when bended, crushed, or stretched beyond its natural capabilities. Usually the location of the fracture indicates how the break occurred, whether it was through an object, fall, or any other type of injury. 

Common Symptoms of Broken Feet:

  • Bruising
  • Pain
  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Blue (foot)
  • Numbness
  • Cold
  • Misshapen
  • Cuts
  • Deformities

Those that suspect they have a broken foot shoot seek urgent medical attention where a medical professional could diagnose the severity.

Treatment for broken bones varies depending on the cause, severity and location. Some will require the use of splints, casts or crutches while others could even involve surgery to repair the broken bones. Personal care includes the use of ice and keeping the foot stabilized and elevated.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our office located in California. We offer the newest diagnostic and treatment technologies for all your foot care needs.

Sixth Grader Suffers Broken Foot but Diagnosis Reveals OsteosarcomaDylan McCabe, a sixth-grader of the Creekside Christian Academy incurred an injury on Dec. 20, in the beginning of Christmas break when a large frame fell from a wall and landed directly on his left foot. One month later Tammy McCabe, Dylan’s mother pondered why her son’s left foot was still swollen when the cast was removed. Massages, long walks, and even heating pads were used to mitigate the issue, but nothing worked.

Until, another trip was made to the orthopedist; X-rays revealed Dylan was suffering from a rare form of cancer: osteosarcoma. The bone cancer was found on his right leg, a tumor measuring 14 inches in length right between his hipbone and knee. “It was a blessing that he broke his foot, because we wouldn’t have known otherwise.”

Sometimes, a broken foot might be a blessing in disguise like the story above. This means seeing a podiatrist like Dr. Michael A. Stein, DPM of Foot Doctor of the East Bay should be a priority. Dr. Stein can provide all the assistance required in treating a broken foot.

Foot and Ankle InjuriesSenior basketball player Justin Cobbs will be off the court for at least 6-8 weeks after suffering a broken foot. The 6’2 point guard, who broke the fifth metatarsal bone in his right foot, will undergo surgery to have a screw inserted into his foot according to coach Mike Montgomery.

 “No guarantees with the feet,” Montgomery said, “But that’s the smartest course of action and the quickest way to get back. He’s anxious to get going.” Until Cobbs returns, sophomore Tyrone Wallace as well as freshman Sam Singer and walkon Garrett Galvin will be taking Cobb’s position.
