Foot Pain Milwaukee Area Specialists Heal Metatarsal Stress Fractures While Alleviating Symptomatic Pain
Our podiatrist in Milwaukee diagnoses and treats metatarsal stress fractures. Metatarsals are the bones connecting your toes to your ankle. Metatarsal stress fractures are fine fractures caused by excessive pressure on the bones. Those suffering from metatarsal stress fractures are often runners, dancers, athletes, and anyone else who may overuse their feet.
A metatarsal stress fracture begins with general foot pain. As the condition worsens, the fracture will present a more constant metatarsal pain in the generalized area of the fracture. This type of fracture can also cause swelling and sensitivity to touch. Our Milwaukee podiatrist recommends obtaining a diagnosis as soon as possible if you suspect you may be suffering from a metatarsal stress fracture. If left untreated, the pain will worsen and damage to the bone could become more severe. Our foot and ankle specialists utilize state of the art equipment paired with a multi-disciplinary approach for the fastest, most effective, treatment of metatarsal stress fractures.
