Did you know that the foot contains 26 bones, 19 muscles, 33 joints and 107 ligaments? A quarter of all the bones in the body of a human is in your feet and plays an important part in supporting the body. The body can become out of alignment and unbalanced when the bones in the feet are not correctly aligned causing discomfort and can disturb your wellbeing.
Whatever type of injury you may have will usually fall into a category. Each case will be examined on its own merits and will consider the extent of the injury based on the type of category it falls into. The following are the more common factors in a foot injury and will determine the level of compensation you may receive.
A major force that impacts the foot can break one or more of the 26 bones in your foot. As an everyday task, walking is reliant on the use of your feet to move and support your body. A broken bone in the foot or feet is going to make it almost unbearable to walk and do other everyday tasks that involve the use of your feet.
A majority of foot injury claims will consist of ankle injuries. They are more common as our ankles have many small delicate bones. The tibia and fibula are the two bones in the leg that meet at the ankle, and stabilises the ankle joint with the support of ligaments. The whole arrangement is complex with adjoining muscles and tendons that work to enable movement. When any of these elements is overstretched an injury can occur. Although both sprains and strains are the result of such an action, it is the sprain injury that can be more damaging and often caused by trip slips or accidents at work.
Metatarsal bones are the five long ones that are found midfoot between the toes and the ankle. A lot of our body weight rest on these metatarsal bones when using our feet. An injury to the metatarsal bones can cause distress and affect your movement. It is common for these bones to fracture or break when they are twisted during a fall or if a hefty object falls on them with a forceful impact.
Ankle fractures are split into four areas:
- Closed fractures
- Open fractures
- Displaced fractures
- Non-displaced fractures
An open fracture is when a broken bone protrudes from the skin and the closed fracture is where the broken bone does not break the skin. A displaced fracture is where a broken bone causes movement from the original location, whereas in a non-displaced fracture the bone remains in the original place and doesn’t protrude from the skin.
