What's the treatment usually for post traumatic avascular necrosis of the navicular in foot?

1 doctor weighed in

In brief: AVN - navicular

AVN or avascular necrosis implies that the bone dies.
The talus and navicular are the more common in the foot/ ankle as their blood supply is very limited when injured. treatment is very long and time consuming. Can take 3-4 months. bone stimulators are helpful, staying off your foot- non weight bearing, physical therapy - ultra sound techniques help. avoid NSAIDS
