Have you been exercising too much of late? Do you have a swelling in your ankle or your foot? Do you have a bruise or tenderness in your foot or ankle? A stress fracture occurs when the muscles are over exercised or overloaded. With the muscles being fatigued, the stress is transferred to the bone that is nearby causing a stress fracture. Women are more prone to stress fracture with a condition known as 'the female athlete triad', with decreased bone density resulting from a bad diet, amenorrhea and poor nutrition. Athletes who take part in high impact sports such as gymnastics, volleyball and distance running also suffer from stress fracture due to muscle fatigue.
