Foot bones ligaments

Common Questions and Answers about Foot bones ligaments

foot

A week ago I fractured my cuboid bone in my right foot and tore some ligaments. I am wearing a boot and that is the only way I can walk on the foot. I was seen by an Orthopedic Surgeon - x-rays were taken to confirm the fracture. I am trying to stay off my foot as much as possible. If I am on it much at all - swelling and bruising increase. My foot starts to throb and I know I am going to have a hard time sleeping at night.
There are two menisci, anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments and medial and lateral collateral ligaments in your knee joint, total six ligaments. Sometimes there are accidents where you injure medial meniscus, medial collateral ligament and anterior cruciate ligament together and this is called O'Donoghue triad. So it is possible that you have multiple ligaments involved and you have to go for a surgery and then follow up with proper physiotherapy to recover completely. Take care!
I broke both bones in my ankle and tore ligament completely....I had no pain in the ankle was ok...I could walk on it ok.....but my hip on the other leg..pops and feels out of place..have to get something for inside my shoes....I had infection in the ankle....may need another surgery to clean it out...but I am on antibiotics for the rest of my life....I am so worried and concerned that I will get a bad infection and half to lose my foot....it has not hurt in 15 months..but today out of nowhere..
Possibilities that may need to be considered include structural issues with foot bones, joint degeneration, inflammation, causes related to tendons/ ligaments, growths/ masses etc. I would suggest getting this evaluated by an orthopedician for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. Hope this is helpful. Take care!
Yes, there are no traditional hernias in the foot. However, if your plantar fascia and other ligaments are weak or injured then pads of fat can slip out and cause lumps. The bones held together by these ligaments may slip from place and cause a lump which looks like hernia. You need to ask your doctor for a MRI.
could simply be the muscles and ligaments of those stressed joints yelling in protest. Or causing other bones to rub together differently and thus cause joint inflammation. Have you been seen for the chronic pain in your toe? It sounds like you need to get to the root cause.
So I immediately went to the hospital. Where they did do an x-ray and was told that I did not have any broken bones. My foot was red and would change colors, especially when I put weight on it. I was referred to an orthopedic who then ordered a bone scan but did not find anything however he did put my foot in a cast to see if it helped with the pain and swelling. 3 weeks later my foot was still the same and the cast was taken off.
The plantar fasciitis which is an inflammation of the ligaments in the foot and heel has gotten much better but now I have this bizarre vibration. Like many of you have reported it is like a pulse: a few seconds on a few seconds off. Its comforting to know that I am not the only one. Do you think aliens have anything to do with this? Seriously though, at first I was worried it was deep vein thrombosis or a blood clot or something.
I asked a friend of mine and she suggested that I could have pulled a muscle in my foot. But, when I walk, I can feel my bones moving, kind of like crunching. And a few days ago, i was laying down on the couching and moving my toes to the music I was listening to and I could feel my bones moving as well but it didn't hurt at all. I haven't gone to see a doctor yet. I just would like to know what's wrong, if i should see a doctor or if my foot will just heal itself.
I am sorry that you continue to have foot pain. An x-ray is a good tool to view bones but doesn't provide a detailed look at ligaments and tendons... or other soft tissues. It would be my guess that you may have injured those structures. An MRI will provide you with a better look at the effected foot. Discuss this with your physician. After three years it may be too late to do any surgical repair but I am far from an expert. Ppl with true Chronic Pain rarely become addicted to opiates.
I am a bicyclist. Around six months ago I stumped my toe really bad on the beadpost at night. My doctor ex-rayed it, and said that nothing was broken; but ever since, on long rides that foot goes numb, tingles, and is mildly painful. If I ride a lot, it stays that way between rides to some degree (mostly only when standing). Do you think this is anything to worry about? I don't want to curtail riding, but I want it to get better too! Thanks!
In all probability there has been injury to either ligaments or tendons holding the small bones of foot or there has been a minor fracture in a small bone. An X-ray of foot should be done. Apply crepe or pressure bandage, after soaking feet in warm saline water. You can apply any pain removing gel too. Avoid putting too much pressure on the foot while it heals. However, it would be best to consult a doctor once. Take care!
Enabling TOTAL immobilization so I can work on the ligaments necessary to hold the bones in the correct place. necessary to This is going to be a lengthy rehab process and I'll need to have the tape on for several days at a time replacing it as needed. I will be using a tape prep spray. My physical therapist prefers Kendall's Wet-Pruf but it's is in short supply nad hard to find for a reasonable price. Too many scalpers out there. If anyone knows of a quality medical tape, I'm all ears.
My name is Jessica and I live in Florida about 4 months ago I slipped and fell at work, I have torn all of my ligaments, broke my Fibula, stretched all my veins and nerves, causing a foot drop. It's been really hard for me to deal with it but I am slowly overcoming it, 2 months after my accident my mother passed away, so the overwhelming emotions of that and my foot not being normal sent me into overdrive. I now have my AFO and I love it and hate it at the same time.
My 4 years old daughter has pain only in her left foot (same place) for more than 1 year ago. Only Jan 5, 2009 that she also complaied back pain too. She cries from pain and it lasts usuall 15 minutes or so. Any idea what is it ! Doctors does not seem that they know why!
It’s usually smooth, but it can cause wear and tear or pain if it presses or rubs on other bones or soft tissues such as ligaments, tendons, or nerves. Treatment directed at symptoms could include rest, ice, stretching, and non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen. If a bone spur is in your foot, changing footwear or adding padding or a shoe insert such as a heel cup or orthotic may help.
Are you certain there isn't a break in a bone in there somewhere? There are so many tiny bones in your foot. It took the drs 5 months to find the break in my foot. (This was many years ago. Ended up being a sesamoid bone on the bottom of my foot.) I'm telling you this because those breaks can be hard to find. Or it could be some type of nerve damage. I don't know. My best advice is to see an orthopedic doctor.
For a year now I have had a pain in my foot, there is a fair size bulge on the inside of my foot close to the heel. Also the veins bulge from the side to the bottom of my foot at times. This all occured a year ago when I was walking in heels and slipped on uneven pavement and twisted my ankle. was x-rayed and nothing broken. Frustrated, as I am now on pills again to try to bring down the inflammation. Thank you for any comments or help.
We haven’t had a good old mystery diagnosis lately so I thought I would offer up my case history and get your feedback. This is not MS related because it is not a CN problem Pt history: MS Left foot Bunionectomy April 2012 Pulmonary embolism August 2012 Hammer toe – left foot developed 2013 Sx (that’s for symptoms and not sex)- Pain in left foot – got orthotics for relief from hammertoe – helped temporarily but then started to worsen over past six months.
the first guy never mentioned the fact that I had 2 bones messed up in my foot. The Talis and Cuboid. from what the foot guy said that it looked like those two bones collided in my fall and "bruised" both of them. She and her OS showed me the MRI that showed it best that the one bone had chaged color meaning trauma/fracture about 50% of it and the other bone the talis had about 25% change in it.
Hi, It probably appears like a strain of one of the ligaments of the foot. A ligament is a thick thread like structure that joins a bone to a bone. It can happen commonly and best treatment is a rest to the foot. You can also put your feet in a tub of warm water 2-3 times in a day and that will help. I think you can wait for 2-3 days and try it out and if it still does not get resolved, you can consult an orthopedic surgeon. I hope that helped. Please do keep me posted. Kind Regards.
The swelling was just above my ankel at the widest part of my foot on the outside of my foot up across top of foot. Within minutes,my whole foot was huge. I have never had anything wronge with my foot before. I have sharp shooting pains and a all over ache across the top of my foot. The bottom of my instep aches also. I can not bear weight on my foot yet. My toes feel like they are flared but they are not. It is wrapped in a ace bandage and I do elevate it and put ice on it.
The pain in the swollen ankle is tender on the inside part of my ankle most of the time, but on the outside of that ankle is a nagging pain at the bottom of the bones. I have tried ice, heat, elevation, staying off my feet and prescription pain meds. Another part of this background is that I have been on long acting and immediate release morphine for about 8 years, initally because of chronic kidney stones and utimately to help with on-going chronic pain in both knees.
I've had 4 foot surgeries, 2 within the last several years. They all had to do with misaligned bones. I'm better now, and am keeping my fingers crossed. The best thing to do is to see a competent podiatrist. X-rays will tell a lot of the story. If your feet are completely normal, then it will be time to seek another cause.
Medial aspect of talus, medial malleolus, sustentaculum tali of calcaneus, cuboid, medial cuneiform and the bases of the metatarsals, are all bones or parts of bones in the foot. A CT scan has been advised since it is more efficient in detecting bony abnormalities, over an MRI. Talofibular ligaments connects two important bones in the foot i.e. the fibula and the talus. Multiple tears with surrounding reaction is seen in a few connecting ligaments.
Yes, it could be a fracture involving any of the bones of the foot and not necessarily the cuboid. Other possibilities include injuries to tendons/ ligaments, infections, inflammations, nerve impingement/ compression etc. It would be best to get this evaluated by a primary care physician/ orthopedician for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. Hoppe this helps. Take care!
I had antibiotics for 10 days and anti-inflammatory. No broken bones but ligaments or nerves might be hurting. I went back to doctor and I'm taking voltarem but still some tingling from where I got hurt to the end of toe. I have an appointment with podiatrist in 2 weeks. Is it normal to hurt even after this long time? Wearing only flip flops or open sandals is driving me crazy? How much longer to wear tennis shoes?
you have swelling/involvement of the middle of the foot. probably have a strain to the foot.
Hello! You still might have damaged some soft tissue; ligaments or tendons. As it is tender you should apply ice packs and also take some ibuprofen for couple of days. Do not exert and if pain continues wear a brace and follow up with an orthopedician for further examination and diagnosis. Take care!
