  2. 2.Tibial Stress Fracture

    A tibial stress fracture is a small crack in the shinbone (tibia). These fractures are most often a result of overuse and are commonly seen with an increase in activity. Usually stress fractures of the shinbone occur in the lower third of the bone.

    You should visit a doctor who can confirm the diagnosis, sometimes a MRI scan is needed. You should rest for around 8 weeks, and avoid any activities that put repeated force on the feet, such as running. You may also find it helpful to do exercises to maintain strength and flexibility in the lower leg, such as light calf raises as long as they do not cause any pain.
