Stress Fracture of the Talus

Stress Fracture - Talus

The talus bone is the bone at the top of the ankle which the tibia or shin bone sits on. Stress fractures of the talus are sometimes seen in footballers and track and field athletes. Exercise will often cause the outside ankle pain to feel worse. Overpronation can increase the risk of this ankle injury, so correcting any biomechanical issues is a key part of the recovery process.
