Foot injuries are not something to be taken lightly. As your feet carry you everywhere you go, it’s absolutely vital that they heal properly after any sort of injury. If you have witnessed one of the following signs of a foot injury, contact a podiatrist immediately. Even if you are able to move the injured parts, you should contact a foot doctor for an examination and possibly an X-ray to determine how serious the injury is.
Serious foot injuries, such as sprained ankles and fractured toes, are often accompanied by certain conditions. For example, if you heard a noise, such as a pop or snap, when the injury occurred, it is likely that the injury is serious. In addition, bruising, discoloration, and swelling often occur when your foot is seriously injured.
