Which Foot Bone is Most Prone to Fracture?

Metatarsal Fracture Lawyers.  The metatarsal bones are located in the center of the foot.  Each human foot has 5 metatarsal bones located between the ankle and the toes.

Metatarsal fractures frequently occur in workplace accidents, falls and athletic activity. A metatarsal fracture can be caused by twisting of the foot, as well as by the foot being crushed by a heavy object.

These injuries can cause blood circulation problems in the foot and calf. Further, the patient may need to wear a medical boot to protect the foot and promote healing.

Depending on the severity of the injury and the necessary medical procedures, nerve damage in the surrounding tissue can also occur.
