No dilly dallying.: The initial treatment plan for these injuries is to elevate the foot and apply an ice bag to the area to stop and/or reduce the swelling. Do not apply any wrap or compression so as not to hurt the tarsal nerve in the area. It may have been involved. Obtain crutches for mobilizing and do not bear weight on the foot until it has been examined. Do not dilly dally on getting professional help.
