Stress Fracture Causes and Treatment

 

Stress fractures are a type of fracture that occurs due to overload around the ankle without any impact or trauma. Stress fractures, unlike other types of fractures, do not occur suddenly, but over time and give symptoms with pain. Stress fractures, unlike other types of fractures, do not occur suddenly, but over time and give symptoms with pain.

Causes of Stress Fractures

Stress fractures may occur due to compression problems in the foot. If the patient has a pressing problem, the use of appropriate insoles can prevent stress fractures. However, it is important for the patient to pay attention to his weight and to use appropriate insoles both in his daily life and during sports activities.
Stress fractures may occur in patients without any compression disorder. The causes of stress fractures that are not related to pressure disorders are as follows:

  • Excess weight,
  • Long-term use of unsuitable shoes,
  • Walking on floors that change the way the foot presses for a long time,
  • Inappropriate training technique or training ground

Stress Fracture Treatment

The treatment of stress fractures is decided after the patient is examined in detail. Depending on the stage of the stress fracture, non-surgical methods or surgical treatments are applied. In some patients, non-surgical treatments such as the use of plaster, boots and insoled sports shoes are sufficient, but some patients must be treated with surgery.
