Health Tip: Think You Fractured Your Foot?
Here are first-aid suggestions

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- If you believe you've fractured a bone in your foot, it's important to see a doctor as quickly as possible.

If there's time before your office visit, here are suggestions to follow, courtesy of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons:

  • Place an ice pack on the foot to minimize swelling.
  • Keep your foot elevated.
  • Avoid putting too much weight on your foot.
  • Use a soft compression bandage to gently wrap the foot.
