5th Metatarsal Fracture
WHAT is it?
The foot consists of five metatarsal bones that span the arch of the foot. A fracture is a crack, break or chip to a metatarsal bone, typically on the 5th metatarsal, located on the outside of the foot that connects to the little toe.
WHEN does it hurt?
Weight-bearing activities such as standing, walking or running will worsen pain.
WHY do I have it?
Metatarsal fractures occur over time when repetitive stresses are placed on the structures of the foot and result in microscopic damage to the bone.
