#879 Can peroneal nerve tendinitis cause 5th metatarsal pain?

Today’s episode comes from a comment on one of the YouTube videos on peroneal tendinitis. A limping runner asked the question:

“Can peroneal nerve tendinitis cause fifth metatarsal to be tender to the touch and when walking, I am not sure if I have a stress fracture.”

When I read this comment, I became confused because I am not sure what is going on with this runner, but I am going to try to explain and answer the question as best I can in this episode.

#666 Do I need surgery if metatarsal fracture nonunion starts hurting?

Today we’re talking about metatarsal fracture, nonunion surgery versus no surgery.

I know some people will think that I probably should have gone straight from #665 to 667 because frankly, there are some negative connotations surrounding those three letters, 666…the number of the beast.

But I decided to do this episode anyway. And, I decided to dedicate this one to a buddy who is a beast.

He’s tough, he’s active, and he happens to have a metatarsal nonunion that hasn’t stopped him from doing a whole lot of fun, active things.

I’m hoping in this episode you can learn a little bit about the different options you have when you get a metatarsal fracture nonunion.

#553 Dancer’s 5th Metatarsal Shaft Fracture training for Boston Marathon

This episode actually comes from Eryn and she’s somebody who was listening to the Doc On The Run podcast and then sent in a question. She said that she was 10 weeks out after getting a dancer’s fracture in the fifth metatarsal while she was trying to qualify for Boston and getting ready.
What she said is, “I’m one week in using my EXOGEN bone stimulator one time a day for 20 minutes. I heard you say that you had a runner who healed after two weeks using the device.”
She also wanted to know about, “What else was your patient doing? Did they follow the standard protocol? Was he taking any supplements or other treatment to help the bone?”
Today on the Doc On The Run podcast, we’re talking about a dancer’s fifth metatarsal fracture in a runner who was training for Boston.

#518 How long to wait before running with a stress fracture?

Then he started watching some YouTube videos, started listening to some podcasts, and then asked me a very serious question: How long do I have to wait to run with a metatarsal stress fracture? Well, that’s what we’re talking about today on the Doc On the Run podcast.
