Metatarsal Stress Fracture
stress fracture refers to fractures in the long bones of the foot, the
part linking the ankle and the toes. When walking, running, jumping and
landing, much stress is placed on the forefoot. A person whose second
toe is longer than his big toe is particularly prone to fracture of the
second metatarsal bone.
stress fracture symptoms : Pain in the fractured part and some swelling.
An X-ray may not reveal the fracture until after two or three weeks when
it's started to heal.
stress fracture treatment : Rest. Stress fractures usually heal
completely after six weeks - if it's not been made worse in the mean
time by more stress to the injured part. Only start running when one can
begin to walk without pain.
