New York Knicks’ Kurt Thomas Suffers Stress Fracture In Foot
Kurt Thomas, forward for the New York Knicks, has suffered a stress fracture and acute stress reaction in his right foot and will be out of play for at least two to four weeks. There are rumors that the injury could end Thomas’s season.
The stress fracture occurred in the navicular bone in the basketball player’s right foot. Apparently, Thomas had been playing with the knowledge that he had an injury in that foot, but he didn’t stop playing until began to experience pain when he suffered an acute stress reaction.
Hopefully, Thomas will heal quickly and be able to return to the court soon, but stress fractures do take time to heal and it is important to avoid the activity that caused the stress fracture or stress reaction during the healing process.
Stress fractures are very common injuries for athletes. In fact, up to 15% of all sports injuries are stress fractures.
Stress fractures are tiny, hairline breaks or incomplete breaks in the bone. They are usually caused by repetitive stress.
Symptoms of a stress fracture include pain with activity that you do not have when resting, “pinpoint pain,” swelling, and pain with palpitation of the bone.
