Consult with doctor: Your treating physician will be able to give you proper instructions and answer your questions as he or she is aware of the exact injury and circumstances.

See your doctor: It depends on several factors including which bone was broken and the alignment of the fracture. Treatment for a broken bone can range from surgery to a cast and crutches to a special walking boot or shoe. An x-ray will help determine the best treatment plan. See your doctor for proper care.

Broken foot: See you podiatrist for an evaluation and x rays. Bones can easily heal in a poor position resulting in chronic pain and swelling. Don't wait any longer
