Two Words A Runner Never Wants to Hear— Stress Fracture

by | Dec 16, 2020 | Podcast

Despite being an orthopedic surgeon, oftentimes I don’t do what I need to do to recover. I admit I can be a terrible patient.  In a previous episode, I shared my two-year battle with plantar fasciitis. Well in the midst of that battle, I had another injury.   

Today, I’ll be sharing with you my own personal experience with a stress fracture.  I will share how I was diagnosed, the treatment, and how despite this injury I returned to the sport that I love. 

Episode Highlights:

  • Discovering the reason for my pain
  • Dealing with Stress Fractures on top of my Plantar Fasciitis
  • Listening to my body and finally allowing myself rest and recovery
  • Treatments for stress fractures
  • Slowly getting back into the game of running
