What to do if I have fractured foot, do I need a cast?

It depends: Some fractures of the foot can be treated with a rigid surgical shoe or walking boot. But depending on the bone, location, and severity of the fracture, you may need a cast and crutches. Some fractures may require surgery. Ask your doctor.
