Broken FootNFL Player David Quessenberry will sidelined for this season in result of a broken foot. Quessenberry suffered the foot fracture during his practice drills.

He then posted on Twitter “sometimes these unfortunate things happen. I love this game and this team. I will be back in no time and strong as ever.”

In the meantime, the Texans are likely to use defensive end Antonio Smith. Even on the bench, however, the 23-year-old continues to keep up his team spirit while hopefully returning next season.

Dealing with a broken footcan be a painful ordeal. However, an injury like this can be managed and taken care of by a podiatrist like Dr. Andrew H. Cohen of Mid-Michigan Foot and Ankle Center. Dr. Cohen can examine your broken foot, determine the severity of your injury, and work with you to provide the appropriate treatment options.

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.
