How long can it take a broken foot to heal?

Patient dependent

Foot_fracture
In a perfect world, bones typically take 6-8 weeks to heal. However, improper immobilization, activity on the foot, complications in swelling and/or systemic medical conditions can cause delays in the healing process. Some disease that are known to delay bone healing include diabetes and osteoporosis.

It depends on a number of factors such as the location and character of the injury, how bad the associated soft tissue injury is, how well you can keep your foot elevated and your predisposition to swelling as well as others.

Can keeping a broken foot elevated help it heal?

It helps with pain

Foot_fracture
Keeping a broken foot elevated will reduce the degree of swelling and will take pressure off of it. Those two aspects can help with healing. Your treating foot specialist should direct you on this more specifically.

The time the fracture needs to heal depends on the location of the fracture as well as the circulation status of the person. Some bone seal faster than others and some locations are harder to heal the other locations. Diabetes and smoking or also risk factors that make fractures heal sometimes twice as long.

How long?

How long have you had a broken foot? Bones on average take 6-8 weeks to heal shorter if you are younger longer if you are older. You should increase your calcium, Vitamin D and Vitamin C intake. That is what is needed to help with bone healing. But you have to give it time.
