Broken Foot Temperature Change

Broken feet, or fractured feet, can produce a variety of different symptoms in an individual. For example, there may be swelling or pain at the affected location. However, one interesting symptom associated with broken feet is a change in temperature. Specifically, some individuals who have broken their foot may notice that the affected area feels hot or warm. This is not an uncommon symptom of having a broken foot. If the broken foot is warm, it is also possible that it might also feel tender to the touch. Sometimes, a warm sensation is even accompanied by discoloration and specifically redness. If you have fractured your foot, it is suggested that you seek immediate attention from a podiatrist.

A broken foot requires immediate medical attention and treatment. If you need your feet checked, contact one of our podiatrists from Bangor Podiatry. Our doctors can provide the care you need to keep you pain-free and on your feet.

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 in color
  • 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.
