In brief: Not exclusive...

Broken foot is a non-technical term. It could indicate a fracture or dislocated joint or a combination of these injuries.
A crushed foot does not necessarily have any dislocated joints or broken bones. Crush injuries involve damage to the soft tissues and can lead to compartment syndrome of the foot.
