Small avulsion fractures as well as stress fractures of the foot normally only need conservative treatment including relative rest, adjust weight-bearing status and some sort of protection like a boot for a short period of time. Other bones will need more attention and if bones are displaced will benefit from an open reduction and internal fixation with metalwork. Some fractures if left untreated will even result in an inability to use foot properly again (Lisfanc type of injury).
It is crucial to fully understand the mechanism of injury and its implication on the rehabilitation. We therefore use only the best types of imaging equipment and work closely with a group of specialist radiologists to get the most detailed information possible to assess the type of injury and provide the optimal treatment.
