Navicular Stress Fracture

Navicular Stress Fracture
Figure showing established navicular stress in a professional athlete.

Navicular stress fractures are most common in middle distance runners(see press). They usually present with vague midfoot pain during or after exercise. Early diagnosis with MRI and CT allows early treatment and immobilisation. Patients often however present late with well established fractures. These usually require screw fixation.
