What is it?
A stress fracture occurs when a bone breaks but not all the way through. It will feel like a deep throbbing pain and you may notice some swelling and more pain when load bearing. Most common stress fractures occur at the Tibia – one of two bones that make up the calf. The Tibia is the larger bone at the front of the leg. As it is weight bearing it takes the most pressure from activities such as running.
What causes stress fractures?
These hairline cracks in the bone are not gained in the same way other types of breaks are. Where typical bone breaks are the result of a traumatic impact, hairline or stress fractures are the result of repeated application of force on the bone over time.
