Everyone has had a foot injury, at one time or another, whether it is a minor toe injury or minor foot injury. The injuries related to foot, toe and ankle are usually during the activities like work related tasks, work or projects around home, or sports or recreational activities. The sports activities are the common cause for injuries in children and the risk is also higher for any injury in this. If any bone injury occurs near the joint, it might end up injuring the growth plate, called physis, in a child and it is a must that it should be evaluated. With the games and sports, there are other activities like gymnasts, dancers, or soccer or basketball players, who get their tor, foot or ankle injured. When it come to older adults, they have a higher risk for fractures and injuries because their muscle mass is lost and bone strength is not so much like it is in younger adults. Most of the minor injuries tend to heal themselves with time, on their own. But the ones that are severe, they need to be treated by the doctors.

If the injury is pretty bad, rush to a doctor and get it diagnosed so that it does not get worse. And after diagnosis, get it treated. Simple.
