Stress Fractures

Stress Fractures are tiny cracks in the bone, often seen on the weight bearing bones in the foot. They are caused by overuse, often times seen in athletes and long distance runners. Symptoms include increased pain with physical activity, as well as swelling after physical activity.

Stress Fractures may be treated conservatively with extended periods of rest from physical activity, a CAM walker to promote stability in the ankle and foot and to restrict motion and weight bearing activities, and in some cases the use of a bone stimulator to promote healing.
