Feet injury, bruise. Wore crutches. Still have pain. Why?

Hi, I had severe bruising to the outside of right foot 7 months ago after a blow but no pain u.till 3 wks later, x rays were inconclusive but was given a steroid injection and crutches for a week, I still have a circle shaped bruise which has been left over from injury last Oct over cuboid area but little or no pain, the main problem that a couple wks after coming off crutches I have had constant pain in both feet that moves around from toes to inside of soles , I wear orthotics ans walking g trainers as I fractured tibia plateau 4 yrs ago left leg and it is slightly longer and still rather wasted since surgery, I have been discharged from physio as he said foot pain will go in time as it was caused by the crutches but spent 9 months on crutches and never had this before, I came off crutches after I j about a month ago? Thank you

Hai the pain might be due to wearing of crutches and it will go off when you start waking without crutches and the pain on the sole towards toes would be due to spasm of the plantar ligaments.Apply ice and do stretching of the sole the pain would be reduced and maintain a proper posture this may help you to reduce the pain. Take care
