This is a break of a bone in the foot called the "fifth metatarsal." It's on your foot's outer side, behind the little toe. With a Jones fracture, this bone breaks on the end furthest from the toe. The fifth metatarsal doesn't have a good blood supply there, so healing can be difficult.
ATTENTION! Due to construction, the patient drop-off area at our Van Nuys office will be temporarily unavailable beginning Monday, September 11, through Thursday, September 28. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.x
