Common Questions and Answers about Foot stress fracture boot

Avatar f tn Ugh the boot, i didn't have a stress fracture but i tore 70% of the tendon in the back of my ankle. I waited to go to the doc until i could barely walk so they put me in a boot for 8 weeks. It sucked and i still have problems. So deff go to the doc, the boot will help take pressure off of it.
Avatar n tn and said it may be a cuboid stress fracture. At the doc's suggestion I will go for a 3-phase bone scan of the foot ... is that like an MRI? If I do have this cuboid thing ... what happens next? I appreciate your response, Thanks.
Avatar n tn I find that if I put the brunt of my weight on my heel when I walk that tempers the discomfort. Everything I have read points to a stress fracture. The thing is though, the “injury” did not occur due to an exercise related event. In fact, I do not workout at all, though I do walk a lot at work and bend the foot in question a lot when kneeling down. I have been placing an icepack on the foot daily for about 30 minutes three times per day.
Avatar n tn The only way to find out if there is a stress fracture anywhere in the foot, in the metatarsals or any of the cuneiform or cuboid bones is to have an xray. You are doing the right thing in applying cold compresses to the foot. Also rest the foot as much as you can and elevate it.

Avatar n tn My stress fracture in my foot(4th metatarsal) occured in November 2009. Almost 14 months later, I am still in a lot of pain and cannot even think about running. I have always been an active person and an athlete and I'm about to go crazy! Initially, the stress fracture was not found because it was too small to show up on an Xray. I eventually had an MRI done and it found the fracture. I was put in a walking boot for 3 months, and then attemped weight bearing regular walking.
Avatar n tn I too have a stress fracture in my right foot (3rd and 5th metasarsal) that happened 6 months ago. It has never shown up on xray, but an MRI found the fracture. I have been fitted for a custom insert, and it seemed to be improving, but anytime I move my foot quickly, it's like it gets strained, and I have a lot of pain again. I'm at my wit's end. I have been to endochronologist who has found no underlying causes. I'm looking for any kind of ideas!
Avatar m tn I too had a stress fracture. I am wondering with the boot and all if you are walking correctly once you quit wearing it. (Can you find a good chiropractor who will check your spine and hip?) The boot messes up everything. I had hip and lowback issues because of wearing a boot. Also another that helped my cubiod heal was to make sure I was getting plenty of vit d. You might want to get you levels checked. Despite what labs say the ranges are, you should be around 50.
Avatar f tn An MRI showed that I incurred a stress fracture in my ankle as a result of severe osteopenia, almost 4 months ago. Treatment consisted of a period of rest for 2 weeks, then wearing a boot for a month. I was then put on complete rest of the injured foot-no weight-bearing at all for over 2 months, as x-rays showed it was healing quite slowly.

Avatar f tn But now I keep reading how everyone with a metatarsal stress fracture is put in a boot immediately. I really would like a second opinion on the xray and the lack of boot decision, and wish I could upload a picture of the xray here. My plan is to run the Boston Marathon in less than 2 months, so I'm anxious to heal as fast as possible. Thank you.
Avatar f tn Abnormal longitudinal vertical cleft with corticated margins involves the mid navicular bone waist with only a small component of bridging bone and marrow posteriorly and inferiorly. A previous partial fracture with an ununited component is likely.
Avatar f tn been in a cam walker/boot for a stress fracture in foot for 4 weeks, getting it checkup next week it's not completey better feeling yet it's better than how it was at first but def. not a 100 percent what will happen? will i stay in the boot or be in something smaller or be taken out of it and have nothing?
Avatar n tn I finally went to Podistrist and he told me I had a cuboid stress fracture and put me in a soft boot cast for 6 weeks (just got it off today!!!!) but my foot and ankle very week and I'm scared to walk on it so actually looking forward to therapy. Please go to another doc if that's what it takes... good luck with your daughter and no, you are being a GOOD mom!

Avatar n tn I only had a calcaneus fracture from a bad car accident. When I couldn't put any weight on my foot I had pain too. I had surgery and still have the hardware. I'm going on a year in 3 months and I don't have pain but, I do have a-lot of stiffness. Oh, the slight pain I have is a burning one that I get when I work hard at the gym to get my strength back.
Avatar f tn On 28 May myleft foot had a suddensearing pain, the following week dr diagnosed cellulitis however two weeks later x ray showed up a healing fracture and was told to wear flat shoe, in august pain was badand could not wear shoe again, dr got x ray done on 28 sept and referred to fractrure clinic now have a moon boot for four weeks - l have two questions, 1. dr at fracture clinic said if this did not work in 4 weeks l would need to get a plate inmy foot, what does this involve and 2.
Avatar f tn (NOT a podiatrist). You could have either a stress fracture or fracture of the cuboid. Plus you might want to make sure you are getting enough vit d (it should be at least 50 check the woman to woman website).
Avatar f tn In Sept 07 I was diagnosed with a RIGHT foot stress fracture and put into a boot. After 4-5 weeks in the boot my LEFT hip hurt so bad I went to a super sturdy tennis shoe approved by podiatrist. My foot healed by 2/08 but my hip continues to hurt. Can't walk or exercise much. GP thought it was bursitis and gave me steroid shot, didn't help, went to physical therapy, ultrasound didn't help.
Avatar n tn My sports doc sent me for an MRI because I have a history of stress fractures (previous stress fracture to femoral neck). MRI findings were subacute osteochondral injury & small incomplete, nondisplaces fracture to base of 2nd metatarsal, mild joint space narrowing to 2nd joint but no subluxation/dislocation. Small subacute osteochondral injury to lateral cuneiform. No damage to lisfranc/tarso ligaments. Referred to a podiatrist who performed weighbearing x-rays.
Avatar n tn He said I probably tore a ligament and put me in a boot for four weeks. I continued having pain and have tingling in my ankle and foot and returned to the doctor a month ago. He refrered me to another doctor who ordered a bone scan. The bone scan shows I have a stress fracture. My doctor is sending me to therapy and keeps telling me that activity is good for this injury but I have severe pain and the tingling is getting worse. 13 years ago I broke the fibula in my left leg.
441781 tn?1204844957 I have a spiral fibula fracture. I could not put my foot in walking position. My lower left leg was casted for the first two weeks and I was no weight bearing. Doctor told me at the end of the two weeks I would get a walking cast. During that time the pain was terrible. I passed out because of the pain. At the two weeks, I visited my doctor and he said looks good see you in four weeks and I was still no weight bearing. No explanation.
2019109 tn?1346850055 I apparently have a chipped bone on my left foot, was given the CAM BOOT to wear for 6 weeks. Still in constant pain and given some meds ( not pain ) for this. The X-rays showed where it chipped off from, like a puzzle piece you can SEE how it would fit back in its spot. And the ligament behind it or next too it -- Dr. could not see if it was attached to that ligament or not. But the piece of bone is just floating there.

525545 tn?1293184794 The fifth metatarsal is at the base of the small toe, and the proximal end, where the Jones fracture occurs, is in the midportion of the foot. Patients who sustain a Jones fracture have pain over this middle/outside area of their foot, swelling, and difficulty walking. Treatment of an acute Jones fracture that is not significantly displaced consists of a cast, splint or walking boot for 4-8 weeks. In case of non healing cast can remain for about 20 weeks.
