A stress fracture is a small crack in your bone. They’re common sports injuries affecting the weight-bearing bones of your lower leg and foot, as these parts absorb force from activities like walking, running or jumping.
Stress fractures are usually caused by a sudden increase in physical activity. It’s important to see a doctor if you suspect a stress fracture, as continuing activities can cause a complete fracture or broken bone. Our world-class sports medicine specialists at Goshen Physicians Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, including a foot and ankle specialist, can provide a diagnosis and create a treatment plan that meets your unique needs.
