Re: Avulsion Navicular Fracture - exercise ideas?

I can not be sure of any of the diagnoses without examining your foot and x-rays. Having said that, I would x-ray your other foot as well. There is a small % of prople who have an accessory navicular bone. This is sometimes mistaken as a "chip fracture" by ER doctors. To be fair, the foot has numerous accessory bones and a generalist can not know what all of them look like.
As far as the RSD, I would recommend a visit to a neurologist for clarification.

If you do indeed have a fracture, I would not recommend doing any exercises until there is sufficient healing. For pain relief, a TENS or Galvanic Stim unit such as a SPORTX for Rehabilicare are quite nice adjunct to pain and swelling.

Have you seen a podiatrist or orthopedist?
