A stress fracture is a tiny crack in a bone, no really serious enough to be called a break, but still painful and irritating and requiring treatment. If you already have a stress fracture then you are at more risk of gaining another fracture as well, so it is important that you know how to treat the fracture and look after the injured area until it has recovered.
- Know the symptoms. Symptoms of a stress fracture are much more subtle than that if a more serious fracture. You will find that you have pain which gets worse after physical activity, but decreases when you are at rest. There may also be swelling and tenderness in a specific area.
- Build up to normal physical activity. Walking, running and other exercise should be gradually built up to, meaning that you take it very slowly to begin with and only exercise minimally until you can feel that your pain is easing up.
- See a doctor regularly. This will help you to know when your fracture has healed fully.
