Can i use warm water with baking powder for severe gout on foot ?

a friend of mine has quite severe gout in his left foot due to excessive alcohol consumption..which he is trying to reduce..and today he had a bit of an accident and dropped a trailer on the top of his left foot (affected with gout) he was in a lot of pain and possibly may have broken or fractured one of the bones in his foot but unsure at this point...BUT BASICALLY IM WONDERING IF ANYONE KNOWS IF AN INJURY LIKE THIS CAN AFFECT OR HAVE ANY SERIOS PROBLEMS INSIDE HIS FOOT DUE TO THE GOUT...????? HE IS IN A LOT OF PAIN PLEASE IF ANY DOCTORS OUT THERE READ THIS..I CANNOT FIND AN ANSWER ANYWHERE AND HE REFUSES TO GO TO THE HOSPITAL!!...also i was wondering, i have heard home remedies of 1 teaspoon of baking powder in a glass of water everyday can help reduce the gout attacks frequency and severity and sometimes stop it all together..? is this true and are there any side-affects i should be worried about??
