How are heel fractures treated?

Heel fractures can be painful and complicated, depending on where and how the calcaneus, or heel bone, is broken. Simple, non-displaced breaks will need to be immobilized for several weeks in a non-weight bearing cast. Once Dr. Marco Vargas and Dr. Joyce Lee have determined the bone has healed enough, you can slowly begin to put weight on that foot again and build up your strength.
If the fracture is more complicated, you may need surgery. Bones that are displaced or broken into multiple pieces will need to be aligned and tacked in place to recover. You also may require a longer recovery time before using the foot to walk again.
If you are concerned you have a heel fracture, don’t wait and hope the pain will resolve after a little while. Your calcaneus will need prompt, intentional treatment to prevent long-term pain and damage. Contact Foot & Ankle Associates in Texas for an appointment or more information about your discomfort. Call our offices at (888) 784-5335, or visit the online contact page to reach us.
