It definitely seems strange, but it’s true.

The bones 🦴 most prone to this are called the Metatarsals. We have 5 of these bones 🦴 in each foot👣.

The central 3 metatarsal bones 🦴are where this occurs most.

The sudden onset of pain😣😖😫😩🥺, with or without swelling on the top of your foot👣, could be a broken bone🦴.

If you have pain 😩😩 in this area, especially if there’s swelling, it is in your best interest to avoid 🏃‍♀️ , jumping🤸🏼, and yoga 🧘.

This type of broken bone 🦴 won’t heal without some form of removable boot 🥾.

The reason to have your foot 👣 x-rayed 📸🎞 and treated quickly is to prevent the bone 🦴 from displacing.

Displacing means the bone 🦴 isn’t in the best alignment to heal quickly.

We’ve seen a number of these broken bones 🦴 take 6 months 🗓 to heal because the patients waited too long to be treated 🧑🏻‍⚕️👨🏽‍⚕️.

Surgery was needed in a few instances. Who wants that❓❓❗️❗️

The moral to the story is you can break a bone 🦴 in your foot 👣 without an injury👩🏽‍🦽.

To avoid a potentially long healing process, have us diagnose and treat the condition quickly.

We want to keep you active🏃🏽🤸🏾‍♀️🏋️‍♀️🤼‍♂️🤾🏽🏌🏽.

To Pain-Free Feet 👣.
