Rudy Owen says Stress Fracture on Foot Doesn’t Affect Pitching The stress fracture in Rudy Owens’ left foot wasn’t affecting his pitching last year, and he still doesn't know how it happened.  “Even when I first started feeling it, it never hurt when I pitched — only when I’d run,” Owens said. “I tell people I was in the rodeo and I got stepped on by a bull. Other than that I don’t know, it just happened, I guess stress fracture.”

Owen decided to undergo surgery since his foot was getting worse, and believed that he wouldn’t be able to play if his injury was ruled as a broken foot. After his operation, the 26-year-old left handed starter said he hasn’t experienced any issues when he pitches.

Stress fractures in the feet often require serious medical attention. If you have an injury in your foot or ankle, consider consulting with chiropodist Marz Hardy of Academy Foot and Orthotic Clinics. Marz Hardy will determine whether you have a stress fracture or a different type of  foot condition and offer professional guidance through the healing process.

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.
