Stress fractures are a common injury after over-training or a rapid increase in activity. Without modifying the offending activity, patients are likely to get worse rather than better! This video details the importance of managing your activity debt in the setting of a stress fracture, just like managing the debt on your credit card. Stress fractures are common in places such as the tibia, 5th metatarsal, 3rd metatarsal and navicular, with the majority due to overuse or overload. Here we detail how stress fractures happen and outline the downside to ignoring the warning signs from your body. Just like ignoring credit card debt can result in loss of the possessions you hold dear, ignoring activity debt can result in worse outcomes for your health.
