The radiologist has provided a report based on imaging. If there was no x-ray, this may be helpful. The foot has many bones and is susceptible to fractures. The foot should be supported with a cast or splint. Please follow up with your Pediatrician. A Healthtap consult is available. A diet including sources of Vitamin D and Calcium should be offered. Watch for signs of swelling and limp.
