What is Metatarsal Stress Fractures?

Stress fractures within the foot occur when repetitive stress is placed on a particular foot bone (metatarsal) with insufficient recovery periods between stressors. This constant stress exceeds the structural integrity of the bone in question, leading to a fracture. The second metatarsal is the most commonly affected bone due to its length and position within the foot. Stress fractures typically present as a constant pain within the forefoot made worse by weight bearing and are typically accompanied by a history of prolonged walking or running.
