Can you have a broken foot and still walk on it?

Depending on the bone that is broken, the type of fracture, and whether it involves another soft tissue injury or sprained foot, you may be able to walk on a broken foot. Until you see a doctor for a diagnosis and treatment plan you should not walk on a suspected broken foot as you could cause more damage to the foot.

Considering this, can you walk on a foot sprain?

If you can put weight on your foot and walk immediately after having twisted your ankle, it's very unlikely that you have broken anything. If the ligaments have only been slightly stretched, you can usually move your foot normally again after a few days. But even minor ankle sprains can be painful.

How do you know if you have a sprained foot?

Symptoms. In a mild or moderate midfoot sprain, your midfoot area will be swollen and tender, and there may be some local bruising (black and blue discoloration). In more severe sprains, you may not be able to bear weight on your injured foot. If you have turf toe, the base of your big toe will be painful and swollen.
