Fracture of the metatarsal bones is the most common type of foot injury in sport, and may be caused by sudden trauma or overuse.
Metatarsal Fracture Treatment
You will be seen by our Specialist, who may arrange for an X-ray to be done and decide upon the treatment you need.
In some circumstances:
- You may not need a plaster cast.
- If the bones are in a good position some Metatarsal (Foot) Fractures can be treated with a plaster cast or walking boot.
- In some cases the bones may be displaced (out of line) and you may need an operation to fix the fracture / break ( If you need this treatment the Specialist with will explain this to you)
