Stress fracture

A stress fracture is described as a small crack in the bone which occurs in response to overuse or repetitive activities. Most commonly they occur in the shin and foot bones in response to a rapid increase in the intensity of exercise, very repetitive exercise, hard surfaces and footwear.

Our physiotherapists will do a full subjective and objective assessment of your lower limb considering a wide range of factors including referred pain from the low back, the mechanics of the whole lower limb and foot, strength and balance of the muscles surrounding the ankle, sporting technique, motor control, footwear and biomechanics.
