Ben Roethlisberger of the Pittsburgh Steelers was carted off the field during their game against the Oakland Raiders last month when he felt like his left foot was broken. “I kind of just sat there for a second and I went to get up, got help to get up and I went to take a step and it felt like the middle of my foot was just broke half,” Roethlisberger said. “And that’s when Doc thought that it could be--he was convinced it was the Lisfranc.” Fortunately for Roethlisberger, the injury was revealed to not be a fracture but a mid-foot sprain.

foot injuryDaniel Curry, an actor/dancer in the Broadway musical about Spider Man, is not sure if he will ever dance again. Curry suffered a grave injury on the set of the musical and the New York Times reports that his foot, snagged in a mechanical stage lift, had to be mostly replaced with pins and plates.

Surgeons repaired the pulverized foot and ankle in three places. Now, Curry is forced to use crutches and wears an orthopedic boot. So, as a result, Curry has filed a complaint and is suing the producers of the show; Michael Cohl and Jeremiah Harris, for negligence.

Curry states that he, at one point, really believed he was going to die. “I was praying through those moments, and just trying to stay as calm as possible.”

Foot surgery is necessary for all kinds of different foot and ankle conditions. If you have had a foot complication recently and are considering surgery, consult with a podiatrist like Dr. Mayer Salama of Salama Foot Care. Dr. Salama will identify how severe your injury is and help you decide if surgery is necessary for you.

When is Foot Surgery Needed?

Foot surgery is usually required in events where regular therapy has proven to be ineffective. Surgeons often use foot surgery as a last resort because of its invasive nature. In many cases physical therapy, medication, rest, exercise, and casts can help to heal a foot injury. However, sometimes you may need to have surgery done without ever having an injury. Foot surgery can correct a birth defect or deformity or be used for reconstructive purposes. Foot surgery is designed to improve the quality of your feet and to help you return to your daily life.

In extreme cases where the foot cannot be saved, or is beyond repair and is hinders the health of nearby parts of the body, amputation may be a necessary. However the main goal is to save the feet, making such options a last resort.

Matt HarropTriathlete Matt Harrop didn’t expect to break his foot in the middle of the Kona Ironman competition, but when it happened, he didn’t let it stop him from finishing. Kona, which takes place in Hawaii, is known as one of the most grueling Ironman competitions in the world, and Harrop had been training all year for it. So when he fractured his foot he just swallowed the pain and pushed himself to finish. He came in 335th out close to 2000 other triathletes.

Foot rehabilitation can be difficult, especially if you’re an athlete who just wants to play again. If you are seeking help recovering from a sports injury, see a podiatrist like Dr. Mayer Salama of Salama Foot Care. Dr. Salama will identify your problem and get you the best treatment available to correct it.

Foot Rehabilitation for Athletes

Injured athletes are always looking for better, faster ways to aid their recovery and get back to the sport they love. To do this, podiatrists and physical therapists are often consulted so the injured athlete can get back onto the field as soon as possible. But rehabbing an injury is just as serious as the injury itself, and going through the motions of physical therapy or rehabilitation is a necessary process to keeping that injury at bay.

Sports Therapist or Physical Therapist?

If an athlete gets a foot injury, it is essential to receive foot rehabilitation to ensure proper healing. Sports therapists are more focused on athletic-related injuries than general physical therapists. It is important for an athlete to become healed properly because if they attempt to get back into their game before they are physically well, they could re-aggravate the original injury or even suffer a new one due to their weakened state.

Physical Therapy Gives Hope

Physical therapy helps to keep athletes as active as they are physically capable, which will get them ready to return to the field once their feet become healed. Physical therapy often gives hope to athletes. However in cases where the injury is very serious, the athlete may never be able to return to the game.

NBA rookie CJ McCollum of the Trail Blazers will be undergoing an ultrasound procedure after fracturing his left foot. McCollum underwent surgery to have a screw inserted into the same foot he injured before. The procedure McCollum will receive was described as “non-operational” despite the fact that the Blazers announced McCollum would require surgery.

However, McCollum plans to speak to several doctors before taking action. There is no current timetable as to when McCollum will recover or whether he will even rejoin the Blazers. Coach Terry Stotts said, “I would like him with the team when it’s OK for him to be with the team. Obviously, we’ll see how everything goes, but I think it’s important he remain part of the team, and going on the road will be part of that.”

Dealing with a broken foot can be a painful ordeal. However, an injury like this can be managed and taken care of by a podiatrist like Dr. Mayer Salama of Michigan. Dr. Salama can examine your broken foot, determine the severity of your injury, and work with you to provide the appropriate treatment options.

Broken Foot Causes, Symptoms, and Treatment

A broken foot is caused by one of the bones in the foot ‘breaking’, or fracturing. Bones typically break when the bone is bended, crushed, or stretched beyond its natural capabilities. Usually the location of the fracture indicates how the break occurred, whether it was through an object, fall, or any other type of injury. 

Common Symptoms of Broken Feet:

  • Bruising
  • Pain
  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Blue (foot)
  • Numbness
  • Cold
  • Misshapen
  • Cuts
  • Deformities

Those who are experiencing any of these symptoms, or suspect that they have a broken foot, should seek medical attention in a center where x-rays can be performed. This is especially urgent if any of the symptoms include numbness, blue coloring, cold feet, cuts, misshapen toes or deformities as these indicate more severe cases.
