Traumas We Treat

Blunt Trauma

Blunt trauma, also known as non-penetrating trauma or blunt force trauma, refers to an injury of the body by forceful impact, falls, or physical attack with a dull object. The most common way for someone to experience blunt trauma to their foot occurs when a heavy object is dropped onto the area, during a vehicle accident, or during a slip and fall. Blunt trauma can lead to a number of different issues and symptoms on the top of your foot, including pain, bruising, and swelling.

Open Fractures

An open fracture, also called a compound fracture, is a fracture in which there is an open wound or break in the skin near the site of the broken bone. This type of trauma requires a more in-depth workup and oftentimes requires hospitalization.
