A Jones fracture is a common fracture that occurs at the base of the fifth metatarsal (the long bones that connects to the pinky toe). What makes this type of fracture unique is that this area receives a limited blood supply, making healing difficult.
A Jones fracture may present with symptoms very similar to a sprain or avulsion fracture. For this reason it is important to have the injury evaluated by a foot and ankle specialist.
