When to Seek Medical Care
Stress fractures occur over time, and it may be hard to know when the initial injury occurred. Seeking medical care is appropriate if the pain persists even without activity or if it becomes more severe. If the pain does not respond to rest, ice, and elevation, it is worthwhile seeking medical care.
