Metatarsal fracture – our treatment

The treatment of your metatarsal fracture belongs in the hands of specialists. Not every metatarsal fracture has to be treated by surgery, conservative treatments such as a splint or taping the metatarsus are often enough to relieve your pain and calm the fracture. It is important to differentiate between simple fractures and complex dislocation injuries (Lisfranc luxation injuries), which require advanced diagnostics using sectional imaging. If your metatarsal fracture is more complicated and requires surgery, our experts at Schoen Clinic Neustadt have a wide range of surgical treatment options. Their goal is always to enable you to move without pain after a metatarsal fracture and to restore the resilience of your foot. After metatarsal fracture surgery, consistent physiotherapy for a period of several weeks is recommended.
