valerie bertinelliThree months ago, One Day at a Time actress Valerie Bertinelli suffered a broken foot. The celebrity is well known in modern times for shedding 40 pounds on the Jenny Craig diet, but it seems that Bertinelli’s lost weight has come back. Bertinelli made an appearance on the Talk, explaining that her injury has been the cause of not working out, effectively causing her weight gain.

However, Bertinelli is opposed to those who engage in ‘fat-shaming’. The 53 year old caused a positive uproar in the audience on the show as she said “I started thinking, ‘Why do I feel so much shame?’ Because the cameras are on me? Because the paparazzi can’t wait to get a picture of me looking like Ive gained a few pounds? We have to take the shame out of it! It’s not fair!”. Bertinelli has resumed working out ever since.

A broken foot can happen to anyone, even celebrities. If you injured your foot and think it could be broken, see podiatrist Dr. Zahid Ladha of Foot First Podiatry. Dr. Ladha can treat your foot and ankle injuries.

Broken Foot Causes, Symptoms, and Treatment

A broken foot is caused by one of the bones in the foot ‘breaking’, or fracturing. Bones typically break when the bone is 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 who are experiencing any of these symptoms, or suspect that they have a broken foot, should seek medical attention in a center where x-rays can be performed. This is especially urgent if any of the symptoms include numbness, blue coloring, cold feet, cuts, misshapen toes or deformities as these indicate more severe cases.
