The navicular bone is the most common bone to fracture in the foot and is usually caused by a sudden direct blow or twisting motion. It may also be caused by repeated stress on the bone, such as from running or sports activities.


Fracture of the navicular bone is typically diagnosed through physical examination and imaging tests such as X-rays or CT scans. Symptoms of navicular fracture include pain, swelling, and difficulty walking.

Other conditions that can cause similar symptoms to navicular fracture include stress fractures, sprains, and tendonitis.


Treatment of navicular fracture typically involves rest, ice, elevation, and immobilization of the affected foot. Surgery may be necessary in more severe cases.
