George Burbury Back in the Game after Stress Fracture in Foot

George Burbury, forward for the Geelong Cats, sustained a stress fracture in the navicular bone in his foot back in January. After being diagnosed, Burbury spent six weeks on crutches.

He returned to the field on Saturday, finally rehabilitated, and played extremely well. Burbury admits he initially didn’t think the injury was as serious as it was. He is quoted in the Geelong Advertiser as saying that he “didn’t have much understanding of what the injury meant and certainly didn’t think it was a 14 week injury.”

Fortunately, he caught the injury before it got worse. Stress fractures are very common injuries among athletes and many players continue to play through the pain, which can make a stress fracture more severe and can prolong rehabilitation and the time it takes to return to the game.

Symptoms of a stress fracture in the foot may include:

  • Pain when the bone is palpitated
  • Swelling
  • “Pinpoint” pain
  • Pain with activity that goes away with resting

If you believe you are suffering from a stress fracture, have your foot evaluated by a podiatrist.
