Our San Antonio foot doctors at San Antonio Podiatry Associates can help with your foot or ankle fracture.
A fracture is a hairline break and commonly occurs along a long metatarsal bone when excessive stress is experienced. Metatarsal stress fractures occur within any bone, but podiatrists commonly see them occur in the second to fourth metatarsals. A wide range of individuals can experience a fracture, including those involved in sports activities, those diagnosed as overweight, and those with weakened bones, as is the case with osteoporosis. Such individuals may experience pain and swelling the location of the ball of the foot. Pressure on the bones in this area reproduces the sensation. A bone scan may be the most sensitive tool to diagnose an early stress fracture, but clinical findings may also be used for diagnosis.
