Not unusual.


Depending on the location and type of fracture is possible to experience pain on the top of the foot. Treatment depends of the location and type of injury. Treatment option can be conservative or surgical. Immobilization of the area with a rigid walking boot, splint, brace or a cast is usually required. Follow up X-rays are taken to monitor the healing. Seek professional advice.

Talus fracture


It is very common for this type of fracture to radiate pain. Splinting pain is common as well. Make sure you follow up with your podiatrist as these can need surgery for proper healing , but not always of course. Good luck

Immobilize


Pain indicates that there is still some kind of irritation and possibly inflammation. This can be from adjacent structures ligaments and nerves. The talus is the foot bone that makes up part of the ankle joint. To avoid any increased irritation that can slow down the healing process, immobilization is key. This may be done with a brace or staying off the foot. Talk to your doc.

Have it evaluated.


Pain due to trauma may be due to fracture, sprains, arthritis, muscle, nerve or tendon injuries. Have the foot evaluated so that you may get her the appropriate care. You may need to have it immobilized. You may need a bone scan or an MRI if the x-rays were inconclusive.

Depends


Treatment will depend on location of the fracture and whether it is displaced or not. Generally if the fracture is non displaced than treat in a cast is sufficient. However, if displaced through the neck or body then it needs to be surgically reduced due to the high chance for a vascular necrosis or loss of blood flow to the talus leading to dead bone. It is important to get a ct scan.
