Foot contusion usually takes a few days to a few weeks to heal. [1]


1. Usually self-treatable
2. Does not require diagnosis
3. Lab tests or imaging not required
4. Resolved within days to weeks


There may be little swelling and bleeding in the affected part. There may be several causes of Contusion of a foot. It might be because of sports injury, aging, unsupportive shoes, fractures or breaks, or other reasons.


Symptoms:
