Hello I was at work on a ladder and turned and felt something pop in my foot and now have a lot if pain in foot. No swelling. Very tender?

Pops: Could be a lot of things, including dislocation of a joint, tendon, or ligament. Also, could be a tear of a tendon or ligament. Lastly, it could be a fracture.

Hard to say: There are many causes of pain in the foot without any apparent trauma. Without knowing more about your boy's health history and getting a look at his tootsie, I'd be misleading you with any specific answers.

2 wks ago I injured my shin, then swelling moved to my foot. Swelling has gone down, but now I have pain in areas of foot where swelling remains.

Slow process: I assume bruising and discoloration occurred & moved along with the swelling. This is blood in the tissues outside of the vessels which causes swelling and pain. Until all the old blood released by the injury has been absorbed by the body processes, there will still be some swelling and pain. Warm/hot soaks followed by cold water/compresses activate the circulation and speed it up. 2+ times/day ...Read more
