#HerndonVA I’m Doctor Stanley Idiculla, a podiatrist in Herndon and Springfield, VA, where we love making your feet happy.

Today, I want to talk to you about some of the risk factors for foot fractures, which are more common than you might think.

Foot fractures stem from shock and trauma to the bones in the feet. Athletes who repeatedly put stress on their feet, or who suddenly twist their feet during an activity are at risk for experiencing a fracture. However, the non-athletic among us are also at risk, as something as simple as a fall or dropping a heavy can on your foot from the kitchen cupboard can cause problems as well. Osteoporosis and age are two of the most significant factors, since the bones are more fragile and apt to break.

If you suspect that you might have a foot fracture, I invite you to come and see me, Doctor Idiculla, at my podiatry office here in Herndon or Springfeild, VA.
