Foot injury and swelling

I am 67 in good health. Last August I stepped on one of the kids toys and my foot has been swelling. It was between the arch and heel. I am going to orthopedics. He gave me a cortisone shot twice and the ordered some inserts for my tennis shoes. My foot has still been swelling.

    Hello and thank you for your question. Have you had any imaging done of your foot? It is possible that there is a bone or soft tissue injury that is not being addressed with just the injection and insoles. If you have not had an Xray or it’s been several weeks of treatment it may be justified to get an MRI or do an Ultrasound. You may want to get a second opinion. I hope this helps.
