Broken Foot Puts the Freeze on Hockey Player’s Game Time

kris_letang27 year old Pittsburgh Penguin Kris Letang sustained a fractured foot, putting this season to a freeze for the 27 year old. Renaud Love took to social media to announce Letang’s injury: ‘Kris Letang suffered a broken foot (game 6) and broken hand (game 7) vs Rangers. Can’t workout for the next 4 weeks.’

Letang will be starting an eight-year contract next season. This season, Letang only played in 37 games due to suffering a stroke. Unfortunately, Letang contends with a broken hand and foot, causing his career to be on thin ice.
A broken foot can break the ice on a good athletic career. If you fractured your foot, see podiatrist Dr. Carl Ingrassia, DPM of Fords Foot and Ankle Care. Dr. Ingrassia can treat your foot injuries.

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.
