Will casting be enough to treat a fractured foot? Often it will be. She sought treatment immediately and she was immobilized, which bodes well. If the fracture is in good alignment, immobilization for 6-8 weeks should allow the fracture to heal completely.
There are times, however, where a foot fracture is not in good position. Other times, there are areas of the foot that have a poor blood supply and need to have more intervention. In these cases, foot surgery is necessary to secure the fracture with screws, pins, or plates. This allows for bone healing to occur properly and offers more assurance and confidence that the fracture will heal with full strength and function.
If you twisted your foot, it is best to get it checked immediately to make sure nothing is broken. If it is, the sooner you are treated by a podiatrist in Houston, the better off you will be. Wishing Ms. Berry a quick and complete recovery!
