Diagnosis and Treatment
If you are experiencing symptoms of a Jones fracture, you should schedule an appointment with one of the friendly foot doctors at Rocky Mountain Foot & Ankle right away for proper diagnosis and treatment. Jones fractures can be difficult to treat, so it is important to start as soon as possible.
To arrive at a diagnosis, we will ask how the injury occurred and when the pain started. We will also complete a thorough examination. X-rays will be ordered if a fracture is suspected. Because Jones fractures don’t always show up on the initial x-ray, additional imaging studies may be required later.
Until you see one of our foot doctors, you can use the R.I.C.E. method at home to provide some comfort and decrease the chances of further injury:
