A stress fracture in the foot is considered an injury in the foot, either by trauma, or repetitive microtrauma. If not treated aggressively, it can digress into a full fracture. Because of this, the doctors at Prairie Path will examine your foot, take Xrays on site, and determine if it is a stress fracture. Often you will be placed in a walking boot to deweight the area, provide compression, and immobilization. In rare advanced cases if this conservative care does not work, you may need to be placed in a below knee cast. Most importantly, quick treatment is needed. Make an appt today if you feel you may have an injury and we can get you on your way to healing!
