Stress fractures occur when a bone is exposed to an excess amount of force. The force produces a small fracture that is not usually seen on X-ray until 2-3 weeks later, when a callus has formed around the injury. Symptoms include pain during an extreme or long workout that may or may not stop with termination of activity; swelling; pain upon touching.
