Walking on Side of Foot
Asked Jan 22, 2007, 10:28 AM
My 17 year old son woke up one morning not able to walk on his foot. His foot has curved and is forced to walk on the side of his foot. I took him to an urgent care where they took x rays. No break, no sprain. The side of his foot was bruised and swollen but the pain was on the opposite side in his ankle. They recommended an orthopedic foot doctor. I took him to the ortopedic doctor. He ordered a ct scan. He had a CT scan which came up clean. The ortho doctor said it was due to (mental) stress and provided a knee high foot brace but no medication and no physical therapy and to have a good day. Now what? I would guess he needs help with dealing with stress. But what do I do to help him get his foot flat? It's been two weeks. Have you ever heard of this? Thank you.
