Christina Applegate has shared the story about how she broke her foot right before her debut performance in a Broadway show with the public. The show was a revival of Sweet Charity, and she injured herself while performing in one of the previews.
"I don't think disappointing is a word that can describe how awful that whole experience was, how sad it was,” Applegate said. “I'd been working so hard, dancing my butt off, and once it (her foot) was broken, I could never do the show the way I had rehearsed it.” An understudy filled her role until her foot had healed appropriately.
A broken foot is a typical injury, and also a very painful one. If you suffered an injury like a stress fracture as a result of a broken foot, you should consider seeing a podiatrist like Dr. Henry Slomowitz of Paramus and Paterson. Dr. Slomowitz can evaluate your foot and ankle and assist you in getting the care you need.
Broken Foot Causes, Symptoms, and Treatment
A broken foot is when one of the bones located in the foot fractures, or breaks. About 10% of broken bones occur in the foot.
Bones typically break when an object crushes, bends, or stretches the bone. In the foot, the location of the broken bone is usually indicative of how the break occurred. Toes usually break when something hard and solid is kicked with great force. Broken Heels are usually a result of falling from a great height and landing on the feet. Other broken bones in the feet can occur because of a twisted or sprained ankle. Most of the time, a broken foot results from a sudden accident or injury. Sometimes small cracks can form over time in the bones of the feet from repeated stress. These cracks are called stress fractures and usually only occur in athletes that put a lot of pressure on their feet, like runners, dancers, and gymnasts.
Symptoms of a broken foot typically include pain, swelling, bruising, and redness. Occasionally the pain of a broken foot may be so severe that walking is not an option. However, this depends on the location of the broken bone within the foot.

What to Know About a Broken Toe
Although most people try to avoid foot trauma such as banging, stubbing, or dropping heavy objects on their feet, the unfortunate fact is that it is a common occurrence. Given the fact that toes are positioned in front of the feet, they typically sustain the brunt of such trauma. When trauma occurs to a toe, the result can be a painful break (fracture). Another type of trauma that can break a toe is repeated activity that places stress on the toe for prolonged periods of time.
Symptoms of a Broken Toe
· throbbing pain
· bruising on the skin and toenail
· the inability to move the toe with ease.
· toe appears crooked or disfigured
· tingling or numbness in the toe
· injured person experiences fever or chills throughout their body, and when there is an open, bleeding wound present on the toe.
Generally, a minor toe break will heal without long-term complications, but it is important to discontinue activities that put pressure on the toe.
