A stress fracture is a type of injury that can be caused by anything from a car accident to simply performing a normal everyday task. If you move your body in a strange way, or catch a smaller bone at an awkward angle, you could easily cause a fracture, and stress fractures are caused by repeated pressure on a bone in this way. And if you have suffered a stress fracture – or any other kind of injury – that wasn’t your fault, you need a means of claiming for injuries in Bromley.
If you think you have sustained any kind of fracture through an accident, you should go to a doctor as soon as you can in order to be diagnosed and begin treatment. A broken bone will rarely heal on its own, and you need the help from your doctor to get back on track.
Symptoms for a stress fracture include:
- Pain when exercising. This pain may start as soon as you begin to exercise, and then go away as soon as you stop, or it may build up more and more whilst you are exercising, and then fade away once you have been at rest for some time.
- Pain that starts earlier each time. If you have pain when exercising that starts earlier in each bout of physical activity, and progresses to starting up as soon as you are on your feet, then it is very likely you are suffering from a stress fracture.
- Swelling and inflammation. This is a less common symptom, but one of note. You may notice a certain area of your body swelling or looking red every time you do exercise, and you should always get this checked out. Even if this is not a stress fracture, it probably merits medical attention.
- An area that is painful to touch. This will usually feel as though the pain is actually in or around the bone, and when you touch this area the pain may get much worse.
