A Lisfranc injury, often just simply called a midfoot injury, is where one or more of the metatarsal bones become displaced from the tarsus. These injuries are often caused by unintended impact damage. The foot is flexible and changes with the surface that it stands on, but it must also remain supportive, meaning that instead of splaying, the metatarsal foot bones will dislocate in order to prevent from completely breaking if they can. For example, athletes who know the pain of jumping hard on pavement while bare foot will be familiar with the midfoot pain of the foot bones attempting not to completely break from the impact. Lisfranc injuries are often under diagnosed, but this type of injury can include painful fractures and ligament sprains that are not serious enough for a foot cast, but no less painful. Yet, with a simple kinesiology taping technique called the Herringbone pattern, they can be easy to treat at home.
