Stress Fractures of the Foot and Ankle

Advanced Foot & Ankle Specialist

Foot and ankle stress fractures are tiny surface hairline breaks in the bones. Stress fractures, unlike displaced or compound fractures, do not run through the entire bone.

According to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), stress fractures occur when muscles become fatigued and are unable to absorb added shock. Eventually, the fatigued muscle transfers the overload of stress to the bone, causing a tiny crack called a stress fracture. Stress fractures of the foot and ankle are usually a result of continuous overuse Stressful exercise routines, running, basketball training and other sports are common causes of these fractures.

The most common areas for a stress fracture to occur are the second and third metatarsals of the foot. These metatarsal bones lead from the mid-foot section to the toes. Stress fractures are also common in the mid-foot, the heel and the outer bone of the lower leg. Continuous overuse that leads to stress fractures of the foot and ankle is defined by the intensity, duration and frequency of your exercise routine. People who do not exercise or participate in sports are still at risk for a stress fracture. Osteoporosis or other bone disease can weaken the bones and make them more susceptible to stress fractures.
