Tough Break.: A fall can hurt your foot in many different ways. The injury could involve the soft tissue alone or perhaps involving a broken bone. Either way, stay off your foot. Apply some cold compression and elevation for 24 hours or at least until you can have it evaluated. This may involve an x-ray to see if the foot is suffering from a break.
