Bruising Appearance on the Top of the Foot
At Carrollton Foot Center, Dr. Lilly Khavari specializes in evaluating and treating bruising on the top of the foot, which can be caused by a range of factors, including injury, overuse, and systemic conditions.
The evaluation for bruising on the top of the foot at Carrollton Foot Center begins with a detailed physical examination and radiographs to ensure that there is no underlying osseous pathology, such as a fracture or dislocation. Depending on the results of the evaluation, Dr. Khavari may recommend a range of treatment options.
If the bruising is not associated with any underlying pathology, Dr. Khavari may recommend the RICE therapy, which stands for Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation. RICE therapy can help reduce inflammation, swelling, and pain in the affected area. This can include rest and immobilization of the foot, compression with a bandage or brace, and elevation of the foot to reduce swelling.
If the bruising is associated with an underlying fracture or ligament damage, Dr. Khavari may recommend immobilization or surgery depending on the extent of the injury. Immobilization may involve the use of a cast, boot, or brace to keep the foot stable and prevent further damage. Surgery may be necessary to repair the damaged ligament or to stabilize the bones in the foot.
