Sprains, strains and fractures are common to the toes, feet and ankles. Pain, swelling, bruising and difficulty walking are the most common symptoms when you injury the foot or ankle.

Sprains and strains occur when a tendon or ligament is pulled, stretched or torn away from the bone. Fractures are simply a break in the bone.

Most minor sprains and strains can be treated with rest, ice, compression and elevation until to decrease swelling and minimize pain. For more acute sprains and fractures, visiting a foot and ankle specialist for a full foot examination is vital to regaining your mobility to 100%.
