Many embody the belief that it is best to push through pain during sports, such as running, when in fact pain is a cause for concern and not something to be ignored. According to Annie Padrid, a Chicago fitness professional, pain is a sign that you should take a break from training.  Stress fractures are an example of an injury that could become worse if you run through the pain.  Any discomfort in the lower extremities could be an indication of a stress fracture.  “The more you keep running, the more likely it will become a full fracture.  We as bone surgeons don’t believe in ‘push through the pain,’” saidDr. Norman Verhoog, an orthopedic surgeon.  

 When overuse occurs in the bone, it can lead to stress fracturesor in the case of a tendon, tendinitis. If you think you may have sustained an injury such as a stress fracture you should seek out the care of a podiatrist such as Dr. Michael Stein of Foot Doctor of the East Bay can diagnose any foot injuries you may have and provide you with treatment options that work for you.

Dealing with Stress Fractures of the Foot and Ankle

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.
