Stress fractures are small cracks in a bone that can be brought on by repeated strain, overuse, sudden increase in activity levels, and degenerative conditions like osteoporosis. They typically occur in weight-bearing bones in the lower body and cause tenderness and swelling in the affected area. While anyone can develop a stress fracture, individuals who participate in high-impact sports, maintain a poor diet, or who have foot problems like flat feet are more susceptible to fractures.
At ORA Orthopedics in the Quad Cities, we take a conservative approach to stress fracture treatment. We focus on restoring comfort and mobility with as little inconvenience to the patient as possible. We often recommend bracing, walking boots, or crutches to patients with stress fractures, as well as simple lifestyle adjustments to help accelerate healing in the bone. In the unlikely event that surgery is necessary to repair fractures, ORA’s highly experienced surgeons employ the latest advances in minimally invasive surgical treatment.
