Hi everyone, i have a lady with freiberg's fractures of the 2nd and 3rd MT, I have just fitted her with orthotics with met domes and forefoot padding, she has had extensive time in a moon boot before being referred to me. The foot is still swollen and very tender over the dorsal aspect. any comments on treatment options.
Please can you post a more complete history for this case? How have your arrived at your diagnosis? Do you have x-rays, etc... ? If you do, can you post them up on here so people can give you a reasonable opinion.
Thanks Bob for the response, she was referred to me by an orthopod for innersoles with met domes and shoe advise, preferably rocker bottom shoes. She had xrays which I can not post at the moment. She has swelling on the dorsal aspect with tenderness. I would have though the tenderness would have been on the plantar aspect. I am concerned there may be further fractures not seen on plain xrays. Your response is appreciated.
