The navicular bone sits on the inside of the foot between the ankle and the midfoot. A stress fracture of the navicular bone usually causes pain in the midfoot that is worse during activity.
Treatment of foot and ankle fractures
Every fracture injury should be evaluated to ensure appropriate treatment. Tests such as an x-ray, bone scan or MRI may be required in order to assess the extent of the fracture.
Treatment of fractures in the foot and ankle usually involve immobilisation for several weeks to assist with healing. However, the specific treatment program recommended will depend on the nature and severity of the fracture injury.
