What is foot stress fracture?

Stress fractures are tiny cracks in the bone caused by the repetitive movements, often by overuse, such as long distance running. Stress fractures can also arise from normal use of a bone that's been weakened by a condition such as osteoporosis. Symptoms include: swelling, pain, and tenderness.
