Roman Sadovsky Withdraws From Canadian National Figure Skating Championships Due To Stress Fracture
Roman Sadovsky, a thirteen-year-old figure skater, has withdrawn from the Canadian national figure skating championships due to a stress fracture in his foot
Sadovsky won first place in the junior men’s category last month at the Skate Canada Challenge, so this is a very disappointing injury.
Stress fractures are a common sports injury. Treatment for a stress fracture depends on the severity of the break, but rest and immobilization are both key to treating stress fractures. The fracture needs time to heal. If you have a stress fracture, you should avoid the activity that caused the stress fracture, and any other activity that causes pain, until the stress fracture is healed.
In some severe cases, surgery be may be required. Physical therapy and stretching exercises may be utilized to assist in recovery.
Symptoms of a stress fracture include:
- Swelling, but no bruising at the site of pain.
- Pain with palpitation of the bone.
- “Pinpoint pain,” which is pain at the site of the stress fracture, on the top of the foot when touched.
- Pain after normal activity that goes away with rest and reappears when the activity is resumed.
