Stress Fractures Treatment in Calgary

Stress fractures are tiny, hairline cracks in the bones of the feet. They most often occur in the long metatarsal bones but can occur in any bone of the foot or lower leg. Generally there is no direct injury that can be blamed as the cause of a stress fracture and it typically results from repetitive overload of a bone. Repetitive injuries can result from high-impact activities such as running, excessive walking or abnormal foot mechanics/structure. They can also occur from compensated walking patterns from other non-related painful conditions in the foot or leg. Get your stress fracture treatment in Calgary at North Hill Foot & Ankle Clinic.

Symptoms of a stress fracture include:

  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Difficulty walking/weight bearing

Stress fractures are diagnosed through a clinical history and exam as well as using X-rays. Quite often X-rays fail to show a stress fracture and other tests are needed to confirm the diagnosis.

Call Dr. Crosby for assessment and to discuss treatment options.
