Rule out a fracture : Be sure to get an X-ray done in order to rule out a fracture or a crush injury. Depending on the severity of your injury you may need to be placed in a soft cast, or be in a special shoe. You may even need to stay off your foot so it can heal. Get to your pcp or Podiatrist right away to get an X-ray taken of your injured foot.
