Foot And Ankle Stress Fractures

With the warmer weather here, most people are increasing their activity levels.  Many people are hiking or running more miles, and we are seeing an increase in stress fractures.  Many times, stress fractures can be prevented by using supportive shoe gear and custom orthotics.  If they are caught early, they can often be treated without surgery.  Unfortunately, if they are not treated and the fracture displaces (or shifts), surgical intervention can become necessary. If you think you may be having foot or ankle pain due to a stress fracture, don't delay treatment.  Call our podiatrist today at 719-488-4664, so we can help keep you on your feet.
