fractured heel

Posted by sherrillb on 5/30/05 at 15:21 (175898)

I was trying to get some help for my son's heel. He fell some 10ft to the ground. His foot was found to have a fractured heel. They gave him soft splint and sent him home, only to call me and say that upon futher inspection that the heel was indeed fractured. He is in business for himself and does not have the money to go to a orthopedic dr. Can you give me some advice on how to help him with his foot. Do I need to put ice or heat.? It has been about 10 days since the accident. Thank you a concerned Mother

There is a message board called healthboards, they have a section on foot problems and there are quite a few threads about broken heels.
