Common Questions and Answers about Foot bones navicular

Hi, My father recently injured his ankle while jogging. He is diabetic and is 58 years old, 5'9" and weighs around 200lbs. He has diabetes for more than 20 years but managed to stay that in control by taking insulin and excercise. After the injury, he had severe pain and red swelling across his ankles. He was then given pain killers and injection at the swelling area and the red color was gone. He rested his ankle for 2 weeks and then went for his regular job.
Fractures and dislocations of tarsal bones such as navicular are uncommon. Follow up with a podiatrist or a foot specialist. Most of the non displaced fractures can be treated by a below knee plaster and then continue by wearing a boot for a total period of 3-4 months. Go for some X-ray scans and take an appointment with a podiatrist. Take care!
now on the inside of my foot is still sore, i believe its my navicular bone. its harder than the one on my other foot and seems larger now and more predominate. after being on it for four hours or so it will be sore. i can always feel it. does this bone just take longer to heal than the rest of my ankle? should i worry about it? how about blood clots and should i get a bone scan? any infromation would be grateful.
I recently went to an orthopedic surgeon and heard that I have slight bunions and excess navicular bones in both feet. I've had pain for years and years so I don't know how much putting heat on my feet for ten minutes a day could help (what the doctor said to do). He seemed to not recommend surgery because the risk of something going wrong was too high (5-10% chance) but does that mean I should just live with this forever.
- X-Ray Report says:- 1. fracture navicular bone with development 2. calcaneal spur MRI Report says:- 1> Status Diabetes 2> Bones alignment is normal 3> Minimal free fluid in joint space 4> Soft tissue swelling around ankle and foot with adema. 5> Oscuboidale noted - normal variant 6> subluxated talonavicular articulation with fractures involving navicular.
Now I have two fractured foot bones one is the cuboid and the other is the Navicular, plus from having the fasciitis surgery I have this lump in the bottom of my foot and not sure waht that is?.. Anyway I have had 2 surgerys and it seem like its hurting more them helping me.. what should i do now?
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, The mid-foot consists of 2 rows of bones; Proximally, the navicular and the cuboid articulate with the hind-foot through the Chopart joint. Distally, the 3 cuneiform bones and cuboid articulate with the metatarsals via the tarsometatarsal (Lisfranc) joint. Ligaments attach all but the 1st and 2nd metatarsal bases to the adjacent metatarsals. The strong Lisfranc ligament connects the 2nd metatarsal to the medial cuneiform.
You may have an accessory navicular, which is an extra bone growth on the tarsal navicular, the bone in the arch of your foot. This can be accompanied by an abnormal attachment of the posterior tibial tendon (PTT) and can cause the sort of pain you are describing. Occasionally, the accessory navicular is injured and separated from the "true" navicular. If this does not heal correctly, it can also be a chronic source of instep pain.
Kohler's disease is a condition, where the navicular bone in the foot undergoes avascular necrosis. Navicular is one of the many tarsal bones of your foot. Avasucular necrosis is destruction of the bone due to no blood supply Kohler disease is a rare bone disorder of the foot found in children between six and nine years of age. In adults a similar condition is called Panner's syndrome occurs and there are other variations of Kohler which can occur and also affect your metatarsals.
you have swelling/involvement of the middle of the foot. probably have a strain to the foot.
The tendon passes behind the medial malleolus of the ankle and attaches to a bone in the foot called the navicular bone. The posterior tibial tendon injuries appear to fall into 2 categories: traumatic and degenerative. Initially, in degenerative injuries, the posterior tibial tendon starts out with an area of inflammation, which then begins to degenerate. As it deteriorates, the tendon may begin to have microscopic tearing.
Bones: There is diffuse bone marrow edema of the navicular bone. A mild, liear, T1 hypointense signal abnormality is seen in the distal aspect of the navicular bone, which could represent a nondisplaced fracture line. Mild subchondral bone marrow edema is also noted in the talar head with mild subchondral sclerosis at this level. Mild bone marrow edema is noted at the distal and of the medial cuneiform bone with mild osteophytosis and minimal subchondral cyst formation at this level.
Trevor disease most commonly occurs around the knee, talus and tarsal navicular and first cuneiform joints. The tarsal, navicular and cuneiform are bones of the foot for your information. The medial side of the epiphysis is most commonly affected. In osteochondritis dissecans, a loose piece of bone and cartilage separates from the end of the bone because of a loss of blood supply.
Keep in mind that like the wrist, the ankle joint is made up of many small bones and joints in the hindfoot and degeneration in any of them could lead to what feels like ankle pain. I had degeneration in the talo-navicular joint in the hindfoot. For a while a custom-made, articulated ankle brace helped. It allowed my ankle to flex up and down to walk normally, but didn't allow my foot to roll side to side, which is what caused the pain.
One doc said I had broken my navicular bone, another said that there was no fracture at all, but all agreed that the pain on the inside of my foot was because of the two bones (Navicular and Tibia) slamming together - the navicular bone was bruised in result. There were some tears on the outside of the ankle, but that's not really related. Time passed, but after as much as 6 months the pain in the area of the navicular bone (where tibialis posterior connects) didn't go away.
Yes, we have tried orthotics with no results.She has had an MRI and CT Scan. The first coalition she had was the calcaneo and navicular bones. I'm not sure where this other coalition is though. Is a fusion of the joints called an arthrodesis? The pain is very extreme, and she has suffered so much in the last 2 years, it's so unfair, as she should now be enjoying her teenage years, but isnt! Thank you for your help so far.
The therapist used a combination of applying a gel (like icy hot), stretching my foot/ankle, soaking it in parafin wax, and using ultra-sound. This helped a great deal with the stiffness, but not the weight-bearing pain. As I tried putting more weight on it, I could feel something "crunchy" in my ankle, like a rock. And it felt like muscles in the bottom of my foot were "twisting or torquing" when I walked / tip-toed around.
