Thank you for the query.

As long as you wont get the foot X-ray you will not be able to tell either there is a fracture or not. There is so many bones in the foot, joints and ligaments so without an X-ray it is very hard to tell. Such pain can be caused by soft tissues trauma, ligaments trauma or fracture. It might be necessary to put this foot into the plaster.
As you can see, foot X-ray is strongly advisable.

Hope this will help.
