footballers foot


I was playing football about 2months ago and got an mild kick on my right foot (ive had a lot worse than this and been fine!) But as soon as i moved my foot i felt pain. I managed to walk as long as I twisted my foot so that I’d walk on my little toe.
I was told it was bruised it would get better but 2 weeks on it was still sore. I have since been told it was a dislocated navicular and a fracture (but xray said it wasnt). I can now walk but pushing off from the ball of my foot makes the inside part of my arch hurt and kicking a ball if it hits the top of my foot is painful too.Sometimes it aches and if i spend all day on my feet its very tender by the end of the day. Its driving me mad, i just want to play football and although i know i physically could play a game, afterwards my foot swells and i cant walk again. Anyone got any ideas what this is?
Any suggestions would be most appreciated!


  1. I suggest an MRI which will give more information than just an x-ray. Talk to your doctor about getting one. Then go from there.Good luck.
