 Tour de France winner, Chris Froome, will have to withdraw from the Vuelta a Espana after suffering from a broken foot. The injury occurred after Froome crashed during the rocky ride through Andorra. Although the French cyclist was looking to win both the Tour de France and Vuelta a Espana just like fellow cyclists Jacques Anquetil (1963) and Bernard Hinault (1978), the crash diminished those goals early. “Really appreciate all the messages of support, I did my best to hang in there today as best I could with the hop of continuing,” Froome stated on Twitter after the injury.

A broken foot requires immediate medical attention and treatment. If you are seeking treatment for a broken foot, visit one of our podiatrists of New England Foot and Ankle Specialists. Our doctors will assess your injury and provide you with quality treatment.

Broken Foot Causes, Symptoms, and Treatment

A broken foot is caused by one of the bones in the foot typically breaking when 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 that suspect they have a broken foot shoot seek urgent medical attention where a medical professional could diagnose the severity.

Treatment for broken bones varies depending on the cause, severity and location. Some will require the use of splints, casts or crutches while others could even involve surgery to repair the broken bones. Personal care includes the use of ice and keeping the foot stabilized and elevated.

lyoto machidaLyoto Machida might have been able to defeat Gegard Mousasi at UFC Fight Night in Brazil, but nearly suffered a broken foot as a result. Machida, who sustained the injury during the fight, told Karyn Bryant on FOX Sports 1. "I don't know what happened exactly, but maybe in the third round I did some kicking and he defended with his knee," Machida said.

"I don't know if I broke my foot, but it happened." Machida limped as he walked, wearing an air cast. Machida stated that his foot didn’t bother him during the fight itself. "I didn't think about my foot, I just tried to keep my focus on the fight because I know Mousasi was a tough opponent and I tried to give my best," Machida said.

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.
