Colts’ linebacker Pat Angerer suffered a foot injury in the preseason opener. The injury was quickly diagnosed as a fracture and will require surgery. Angerer is a key part of the Colts’ lineup, having made 146 tackles last year. It is not immediately clear who will replace him while he undergoes surgery and rehabilitation. Colts Coach Chuck Pagano is confident that Angerer will return to full strength within six weeks however.

Fractures of the bones in the foot and ankle are painful and debilitating, and often require surgery and extensive rehabilitation. If you are suffering from pain in the foot or ankle, you should seek the care of a podiatrist like Dr. Michael Stein of Foot Doctor of the East Bay immediately. Dr. Stein will diagnose your injury and recommend appropriate treatment options.

What are Stress Fractures.

The Stress Fractures occur on the foot and ankle when muscles in these areas weaken from too much or too little use.  Then the feet and ankles lose support when walking or running from the impact of the ground. Since there is no protection the bones receive the full impact of each step. The stress on the feet causes cracks to form in the bones, thus called stress fractures.

They are common among individuals whose daily activities cause great impact on the feet and ankles. Stress factors are most common among:

-runners                                  

-people affected with Osteoporosis

-play tennis or basketball

-gymnastics

-high impact workouts

Symptoms

Pain from the fractures occur in the area of the fractures, and can be constant or intermittent. It will often cause sharp or dull pain with swelling and tenderness. Engaging in any kind of activity which involves in high impact will aggravate pain.

Treatment

The individual and the degree of injury depend on the fracture of the foot. Some fractures heal very fast while others take a long times and one would need crutches.

- Surgery with support pins around the fracture helps

- A great intake of Calcium and Vitamin-D helps for strong bones

- Set a regimen for running or other activity

- Wear supportive shoes

If you experience any discomfort or stress stop what you are doing and get rest. If symptoms persist see an orthopedic specialist right away.
