Healthy Runner Podcast

Aug 27, 2020

Have you ever felt pain in your foot and wondered if you have a stress fracture? ⠀⠀⠀

🤔 Do you want to know how to tell if you have a stress fracture?

In this episode, I had the pleasure of talking with Podiatric Foot and Ankle Surgeon, runner, and triathlete, Dr. Elizabeth Bondi, DPM from Northern Illinois Foot and Ankle Specialists.

Dr. Bondi provided a ton of value educating us on diagnosis, prognosis, treatment, prevention and how we can get back to running after a stress fracture.

All of the following questions are answered and so much more!

- What is a stress reaction or stress fracture?

- What causes a stress fracture?

- How do I know if I have stress fracture?

- How to diagnose a stress fracture in the foot?

- Can you run on a stress fracture?

- How long do stress fractures take to heal?

- What happens if a stress fracture is left untreated?

- What exercise can I do with a stress fracture in my foot?

Thank you for taking the time to listen to this epidsode and I hope it helps you stay active and running without ever suffering a stress fracture!
