Stress Fracture or other?
irisheyes1911 posted:
I was teaching a dance class last Friday and afterwards I noticed my foot was sore. 6 days later it is quite bruised and swollen. I am going in tomorrow to get it checked out. From what I am reading it sounds like it might be a stress fracture. Is there any hope that it's something less catastrophic? I really can't stand the idea of being out of commission for a long time!

Remember to replace your running shoes every 300-400- miles or every 6 months. Many running related injuries are due to worn out footwear. More
