Dear customer,

Thank you for the question.

Basically, with this type of injury, we need to know whether the foot is fractured or just sprained. Since you are having swelling and are unable to do your activities after the trauma you should go the emergency for an x-ray and for treatment. You require prescription medications which will reduce the swelling and relieve your pain even if this is just a sprain. So, please visit the A and E for management.

Take care.
