The foot has 26 bones, and can be divided into 3 parts: hindfoot, midfoot, and forefoot. The most common type of foot fracture is a stress fracture, which occurs when repeated activities produce small cracks in the bones. Foot fractures can involve different bones and joints and are classified into several types: calcaneal fractures, talar fractures, navicular fractures, and lisfranc fractures. Foot fractures commonly occur as a result of a fall, motor vehicle accident, dropping a heavy object on your foot, or from overuse such as with sports. The common symptoms of a foot fracture include pain, bruising, tenderness, swelling, deformity, and inability to bear weight.
