Stress Fracture (cont.)


The best treatment of a stress fracture is prevention. Maintaining good bone health and density helps prevent all bone fractures. Wearing well supported shoes appropriate for the activity will help manage the forces placed on the foot and leg by walking, running, and jumping. Good flexibility and strong muscles also help support the feet and legs.
