Hit the foot, unable to put it down, x-ray normal. What could be the cause of pain ?

My 9 yr old son while wanting to kick a football, kicked the ground instead. Now he cant put his foot down. We went to the hospital and had a x-ray done, but they don t see any damage. My husband is convinced that a tendon has slipped out of place and wants to take him to a manipulator. What could cause the pain and should I let this person who is not medically trained touch my son s foot?

Hi and welcome to HCM
It could be soft tissue injury or ligament sprain. Do not get it manipulated by medically untrained person ,it can further damage ligament and tendons.I suggest you to consult an orthopaedician nearby for a detailed examination and appropriate treatment.
I do hope that you have found something helpful and informative and I will be glad to answer any further query.
Take care.
