A boot, cast, or splint
may be put on your foot for 6 - 8 weeks and lower leg to decrease your foot movement. These work to hold the broken bones in place, decrease pain, and prevent further damage to your foot.
Immobilization of the fractured foot will help with pain control. Ibuprofen
) can be helpful with pain control by decreasing inflammation in the area.
Once your foot has healed, a physical therapist can teach you exercises to help improve movement and strength, and to decrease pain.
I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.
