Ankle and Foot Stress Fracture Prevention

What are Ankle and Foot Stress Fracture Prevention?

The ankle and foot may be easy to injure. A fracture of the foot or ankle may be caused by a simple stub or trip. Here are a few tips that may help you prevent a stress fracture:

• Check your shoes. The proper type of shoe wear is required for different activities. If you are participating in sports, it is important to wear shoes appropriate to the sport you are taking part in.

• Know when to replace footwear. Check the soles of your shoes to see how worn out they are. Uneven wearing out of soles may cause injury.

• Strengthen your bones. Consuming calcium will keep your bones strong and healthy.

• Cross-train. Switching up your workout can help prevent stress fractures.
