(HealthDay News) -- The bones of your feet are designed to
absorb the weight and energy of the rest of your moving body. But
when nearby muscles are overused and can no longer absorb the shock
of running, jogging or playing sports, for example, your foot may
develop a stress fracture.
The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons says possible
warning signs of stress fracture of the foot include:
Pain that gradually worsens over time, increasing during
weight-bearing activities and improving during rest.
Swelling at the top of the foot and outside the ankle.
