Causes, Symptoms, and Treatments of Foot Fractures
May 18 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
The human feet house 25% of the body’s bones. As a result, the foot is very susceptible to two kinds of fractures: stress and general. Stress fractures are small fissures or cracks in the surface of the bone and usually occur in the forefoot and mid-foot area extending to the toes. General fractures travel into the bone beyond the surface and can be stable or displaced, as well as closed or open.
Early detection is key when treating a fracture. Although many fractures are not disabling, they can still be very painful and require proper diagnosis and treatment. Dr. Muronda will lead a discussion detailing early warning signs of a fracture and treatment methods to assist in recovery from a fracture injury.
