- Stress Fractures-this occurs when the foot is over-used by walking, hiking or when there is repetitive activity that stresses the metatarsal bones. Non-displaced bones which have not moved from their natural position are treated with casting or traction. Displaced bones are treated with a plaster cast, grip support, rigid boot or shoe.
- Acute Fractures-X-rays, CT scans and MRIs are used to view the broken bones. Screws, plates, discs and surgical pins are fixed on broken bones under anaesthesia to hold them together. The limb with the broken bone is immobilised to help it heal
- Pain, Swelling and Tenderness-this may be experienced in the affected area. Paracetamol, ibuprofen and NSAIDs are given. Resting and elevating the foot helps while ice packs are used on the affected area to reduce pain. Stretching and strengthening exercises, massage therapy and physiotherapy are necessary.
