Patient Comments Read 40 Comments
Treatment for a broken foot depends on the particular bone that is broken. Broken toes can be managed at home by buddy taping them, applying ice 20 minutes every hour, rest, and elevation of the foot. More serious fractures of the foot may need to be evaluated by a doctor. For the more serious fractures a cast, boot, or surgery may be required.
