Metatarsal Stress Fracture

Metatarsal Stress Fracture

Metatarsal 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.

Metatarsal 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.

Metatarsal 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.
