I have a foot contusion, the foot was rolled badly on the arch, it was 1 month ago and it still has swelling around/on arch. How long should it take?

I have a foot contusion, the foot was rolled badly on the arch, it was 1 month ago and it still has swelling around/on arch. How long should it take?

It takes much longer if you continue to walk on it and reinjure it while it is trying to heal. You may also have an occult fracture that would benefit from a cast -- see your doctor for a re-examination. A repeat xray or MRI will tell if a more serious problem. ...Read more
