A heel bone fracture can be a very serious foot condition. They are fairly common, and can cause many different long-term complications, such as chronic pain or joint stiffness. This type of break is typically caused by a high-impact collision, such as a fall from a great height or an automobile accident. It isn’t always possible to prevent or avoid these types of occurrences. If your heel bone is broken, it is important for you to get the right kind of treatment to avoid long-term issues. This means getting surgery if necessary and following your doctor’s orders to the letter. You might not have intense pain associated with your fracture, but under no circumstances should you try to push through the pain. If you think you may have a broken heel bone, come in to our office so we can determine how serious your condition is and get you started on treatment right away.
