Hockey Players Season Ended From Broken Foot

kris-letangPittsburgh Penguins defenseman Kris Letang suffered an end to a rather difficult season after sustaining a broken foot. TVA Sports Renaud Lavoie tweeted: ‘Kris Letang suffered a broken foot (game 6) and a broken hand (game 7) vs Rangers. Can't workout for the next 4 weeks.’

Letang appeared in only 37 games after suffering from a stroke. The 27 year old managed to return for the playoffs but now has to contend with both a broken hand and broken foot. This injury has placed a huge dent on the Penguins’ roster.

A broken foot can be very painful. If you or a loved one suffered a foot or ankle injury, see podiatrist Dr. Alfred Sanginario of Active Foot Care. Dr. Sanginario can treat your foot and ankle injuries.

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.
