Foot Injuries Can Fracture Fitness Plans
If you’re hitting the gym in earnest, to shed some holiday weight, that’s great; but it can also be risky, if you’re not used to exercising. Whether you’re new to working out, or you’ve been slacking in your routine, the impact of sudden, intense physical activity can cause stress fractures in the small, delicate metatarsal bones.
So, if you notice pain during your routine (near the top of your foot, below the toes), which eases when you rest, come and see us. We are among the few local facilities equipped to properly diagnose stress fractures, which often go undetected by standard X-rays. And if you’re going to exercise, start out slowly, as a foot injury could seriously fracture your fitness plans!
