Injured foot Need to know if it is broken

Patient: Injured foot . Need to know if it is broken or fractured.

 

 

Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query.In case of a doubt whether you have had a fracture of the foot or not, the best method would be to consult an orthopedic for an examination, get a x-ray done for confirming the diagnosis. In case of a fracture, you may need bed rest and immobility of the joint for few days and pain killers as well.Hope this helped.Regards
