stress fractureJustyna Kowalczyk participated in the 2014 Winter Olympics. Kowalczyk partook in the 10k classical-style-cross-country race in Krasnaya Polyana, despite having a fractured foot. Kowalczyk eventually moved forward to win the race.

Kowalcyk finished in 28 minutes, 17.8 seconds, beating silver medalist Charlotte Kalla of Sweden by 18.4 seconds.  "It's something big for me because I broke my foot two weeks ago," said Kowalczyk, who wept during the flower ceremony. "I was fighting with myself with this injury."

Stress fractures can be painful and not always something that can be pushed through. If you suffered any kind of fracture, come see podiatrist Dr. Michael A. Stein of East Bay. Dr. Stein can examine your foot and provide the treatment necessary for you to heal.

Coping with Podiatric Stress Fractures

Stress Fractures occur on the foot and ankle when muscles in these areas weaken as a result of overexertion or underuse.  As a result, the ankles and feet lose support when walking or running from the ground. Since these bones are not protected, they receive the full impact of each step. The stress on the feet causes the bones to form cracks.

What are Stress Fractures?

Stress Fractures are very common among those who are highly active and involved in sports or activities that make excessive use of their legs and feet. Stress fractures are especially common among:

-athletes (gymnasts, tennis players, basketball players)
-runners/joggers
-osteoporosis patients
-those who engage in high-intensity workouts

Stress Fracture Symptoms

Pain from the fractures occur in the area of the fractures, and can be either constant or periodic. The pain is usually sharp or dull, accompanied by swelling and tenderness. Engagement in any kind of high impact activity will exacerbate the pain.
