Jarell Martin, a first-round draft pick for the Memphis Grizzlies, has reportedly sustained a stress fracture in his foot that will keep him from participating in any summer league games. Martin stated, “We’ll see when we get back how things are going, but overall I’m getting better. It is very tough, but we’ve got to look for later on down the road and do what’s best.” The Grizzlies pick reportedly said he “overworked my body” during the pre-draft process.  

Stress fractures can become painful if left untreated for an extended period of time. If you would like assistance in treating a stress fracture, consult with Dr. Jeffrey Conforti of New Jersey. Dr. Conforti can determine the severity of your condition and provide you with quality care.

Coping with Podiatric Stress Fractures

Stress Fractures occur on the foot and ankle when muscles in these areas weaken as a result of overexertion or underuse.  As a result, the ankles and feet lose support when walking or running from the ground. Since these bones are not protected, they receive the full impact of each step. The stress on the feet causes the bones to form cracks.

What are Stress Fractures?

Stress Fractures are very common among those who are highly active and involved in sports or activities that make excessive use of their legs and feet. Stress fractures are especially common among:

-athletes (gymnasts, tennis players, basketball players)
-runners/joggers
-osteoporosis patients
-those who engage in high-intensity workouts

Stress Fracture Symptoms

Pain from the fractures occur in the area of the fractures, and can be either constant or periodic. The pain is usually sharp or dull, accompanied by swelling and tenderness. Engagement in any kind of high impact activity will exacerbate the pain.
