Stress Fractures

Stress Fracture

A stress fracture is an injury overload and microtraumática. When muscles are worn, are no longer capable of reducing the shock of repeated impacts. When this happens, the muscles transfer voltage to the bone. This can create small cracks or fractures.
The most common for local stress fractures are the second and third metatarsals of the foot. Stress fractures are common heel (calcaneus) in the outer leg bone (peróneo) and the scaphoid bone in the upper part of the middle foot.
