My 11 year old daughter fell down the last stair last night, landing on the outside of her foot. It s a little swollen and bruised. She can walk but not put full pressure on it. I m. It sure if it s just bruised from the fall or could she have done something more to it? I m a bit thrown off because she can still walk. But it is really sore?!
From description it seems to be soft tissue injury . She need an x-ray to rule out any bony injury. I suggest you to consult an orthopaedician nearby for a detailed examination. She may get the X-ray of the area affected under his/her guidance.Beside icing and elevating it, she can take anti-inflammatory drug like motrin to reduce pain and inflammation. Avoid putting weight and rest well.
Hope this helps you. Let me know if you have any more concern.
