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 is a stress fracture?
What causes stress fractures?
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. This is why athletes have a higher risk of stress fractures if they do not take the right precautions.
How Enertor insoles help.
- 44% shock absorption – all Enertor insoles offer more shock absorption than any other insole. This reduces force and minimises pressure on the lower limbs.
- Improved mid-foot control – Enertor Performance insoles' met dome and control chassis improves foot function and naturally lowers high force movements. This then puts less stress on the lower limbs.
