Lisfranc Dislocation

A Lisfranc fracture occurs in the bones of the midfoot. The fracture results from dropping something heavy on the foot or twisting the foot during sports or in a car accident. If you suspect you have a Lisfranc fracture, you should see your doctor right away for prompt treatment. Some Lisfranc fractures can heal with casting and physical therapy. Bones that have moved out of place typically require surgery.

Lisfranc Symptoms

A Lisfranc fracture is commonly mistaken for a sprained foot. Lisfranc fractures can cause pain when you stand to the point where you are unable to walk or stand on your foot. Your foot may swell, bruise, and appear deformed.
