After jumping off the stage during her performance of “Dog Days Are Over” at the first Coachella weekend, Florence Welch of the band Florence + the Machine took the stage again with a broken foot.

The singer’s injury did not deter her mood or her performance, however, with the 28-year-old giggling at the shouts of fans and even inviting one on stage for a hug. Welch, normally a high-energy performer, was forced to remain seated during her performance; it was that or either wear a robotic walking boot.

While the disabled performer was not able to move around the stage as she would have preferred, Florence + the Machine was still able to showcase Welch’s stunning voice at its rawest.

A broken foot requires immediate medical attention and treatment to prevent exacerbation. If you are seeking treatment for a broken foot, visit Dr. Alan Discont, D.P.M. of Family Foot and Ankle Care. Dr. Discont will assess your injury and provide you with quality treatment.

Broken Foot Causes, Symptoms, and Treatment

A broken foot is caused by one of the bones in the foot typically breaking when bended, crushed, or stretched beyond its natural capabilities. Usually the location of the fracture indicates how the break occurred, whether it was through an object, fall, or any other type of injury. 

Common Symptoms of Broken Feet:

  • Bruising
  • Pain
  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Blue (foot)
  • Numbness
  • Cold
  • Misshapen
  • Cuts
  • Deformities

Those that suspect they have an broken foot shoot seek urgent medical attention where a medical professional could diagnose the severity.

Treatment for broken bones varies depending on the cause, severity and location. Some will require the use of splints, casts or crutches while others could even involve surgery to repair the broken bones. Personal care includes the use of ice and keeping the foot stabilized and elevated.
