Can You Walk On A Stress Fracture Fibula
Can a person with a tibial or a fibula stress fracture (shin splints) still walk or is almost impossible?
Stress affects most people in some way. Acute (sudden, short-term) stress leads to rapid changes throughout the body. Almost all body systems (the heart and blood vessels, immune system, lungs, digestive system, sensory organs, and brain) gear up to meet perceived danger. These stress responses could prove beneficial in a critical, life-or-death situation. Over time, however, repeated stressful situations put a strain on the body that may contribute to physical and psychological problems. Chronic (long-term) stress can have real health consequences and should be addressed like any other health concern. Fortunately, research is showing that lifestyle changes and stress-reduction techniques can help people learn ...Read more

I believe I have a stress fracture in my heal making it painful to walk. Can this heal on its own if I have to walk on it everyday? Is a brace needed?

If you are a runner or consistent walker it may be although its also possible that you may have a calcaneal heel spur.

Stress fracture- 3rd met.- 17 weeks boot, crutches. X-ray- not healed, pain, but specialist says walk normally, no boot. Is that okay or 2nd opinion?
Ask, and receive.: It seems hard to believe that an experienced specialist would have you walk on your foot, if he believed that your foot wasn't healed. The decision of healing, after 17 weeks, may take more verification than a x-ray can show. Seventeen weeks can be frustrating for both you and the specialist. I suggest you get a second opinion, in fact, it might be considerate to ask him for a referral for one. ...Read more

I'm 26 weeks preg. I think I have a stress fracture in my 1st metatarsal for 3 months & not healed yet. No pain but red & swollen when i try to walk/use?
Need a podiatrist: You probably need to immobilize the foot for a while. A podiatrist (or an orthopedist) might be able to fit you with a boot/brace to help you heal. This is a tough time to have your activity limited! and the extra pregnancy weight is not helping the healing process. I'm sorry! but proper care now might help avoid a longer term problem. Good luck! ...Read more

Have a foot exam...: Your stress fracture 9 months ago may have been more than just the bone injury. There are several soft tissue structures that overlay the top of the foot. There are tendons and ligaments which may have been damaged. Have the foot checked properly. See a podiatrist for a full foot exam. You had a bone scan and ct scan, but an MRI is a better diagnostic test to evaluate the soft tissue. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Have an X-ray: The only way to determine if a fracture has healed is to not healing across the fracture site with an xray.

A fracture is a broken bone. As there is cartilage at the end of many bones at the joint, a fracture may also include a break in the cartilage. Fractures and broken bones are the same thing. It seems that many believe that a "fracture" is a lesser injury or an incomplete break in the bone, but this is not correct. Fractures may be displaced or ...Read more
