"I felt kind of a cramp," said Trumbo. "I played defense and came back in and said it didn't really feel too good. Later that night, I felt pretty bad and I realized running was going to be pretty difficult. It's a stress-related thing. It could have been a ticking time bomb. There could have been a lot of inflammation around that area and it gave way finally."
Stress fractures are extremely painful injuries. If you are experiencing pain or discomfort in the feet or ankles, see a podiatrist like Dr. Henry Slomowitz of Paramus and Paterson. Dr. Slomowitz will provide the care that you need.
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.
What are Stress Fractures?
Stress fractures occur frequently in individuals whose daily activities cause great impact on the feet and ankles. Stress factors are most common among:
-people affected with Osteoporosis
-play tennis or basketball
-high impact workouts
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.
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.
