Overall, midfoot pathology is commonly seen and can be difficult for providers to diagnose. Weight bearing radiographs are often times not enough to make a diagnose and further imaging with an MRI is typically needed. Sports medicine physicians should be aware of the risk of stress fractures of the midfoot and also have a working understanding of the Lisfranc joint complex.
