    Fractured navicular

    Explaining a fractured navicular

    Fractured bones in the feet are very common and account for about 10% of all instances of broken bones. The human foot has 26 bones in total, which are divided into three separate sections: the hindfoot, the midfoot and the forefoot.

    There are two bones in the hindfoot — one that attaches the foot to the leg and the other that forms the heel. The midfoot has five bones, one of which is the navicular. The forefoot is the long part of the foot, which has 19 bones including those in the toes. would you get a fractured navicular?

    The feet are very prone to broken bones, because they are likely to be kicked, knocked or have something dropped on them. A break is usually sudden and unexpected, but you will know that you have damaged your foot because the pain is immediate and initially severe. The bones of the forefoot often get broken in sportspeople, but it is not unusual to get a fractured navicular in a road traffic accident or a work-related accident.

    These are the symptoms of a fractured navicular

    The normal symptoms of a fractured navicular include:

    • Severe pain;
    • Bruising to the foot;
    • The foot possibly looking deformed; and
    • In a clean break, you may hear the snap.

    This is how to treat a fractured navicular

    This depends on the severity of the fractured navicular and if any other damage has been done to the foot, but some of treatments can include:

    • Rest, to keep the weight off the foot;
    • A plaster cast;
    • A support boot;
    • Ice packs (never put ice directly onto the skin);
    • Having, pins, plates or screws inserted; and
    • Surgery to realign the bones.

    You may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim

    If your fractured navicular was not your own fault, but that of someone else either accidentally or negligently, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim. The claim is made up of several areas for which you can claim compensation:

    • Pain and suffering;
    • Anxiety and stress;
    • Loss of earnings;
    • Replacement of equipment and accessories;
    • Medical treatment;
    • Travel costs;
    • Adaption of your home;
    • Moving to another home if necessary;
    • The cost of care if you are no longer able to look after yourself; and
    • Any other expenses that you have incurred because of the accident.
