Stress Fractures Require Careful Treatment to Heal Properly

Stress Fractures Require Careful Treatment to Heal Properly

 A stress fracture to a bone in the foot or ankle can be very difficult to locate and treat properly. The pain and discomfort may be intermittent and may only occur during certain specific movements, which your foot doctor can properly determine with a physical exam. X-ray and MRI tests will be used to confirm findings and to help design the appropriate therapy for optimal healing to occur.

Proper treatment of a stress fracture is essential for complete healing and to avoid reinjury:
