Stress Fracture Treatment

Overview

Stress factors are tiny cracks or breaks in a bone caused by repetitive force. These fractures are common in weight-bearing bones, especially among athletes and those who engage in repetitive activities.

Symtoms

Common symptoms of stress fractures include localized pain, swelling, and tenderness at the fracture site. Pain may worsen during activity and subside with rest.

Causes

Stress fractures are typically caused by repetitive stress and strain on the bone. This overwhelms the bone’s ability to repair itself. Common causes include overtraining, sudden increases in activity, improper footwear, and biomechanical issues (flat feet, high arches, etc.).

Risk Factors

  • High-impact activities
  • Inadequate rest between activities
  • Improper equipment
  • Medical conditions (osteoporosis, hormonal imbalances, etc.)

Prevention

  • Proper training techniques
  • Gradual increases in activity intensity
  • Appropriate footwear
  • Sufficient rest

Treatment

Prompt diagnosis and treatment are important for stress fractures. If you suspect you have a stress fracture, consult with a healthcare provider right away. Early detection of stress fractures is key to effective treatment and management.
