#470 Doctor has a runner with a stress fracture for 2 months

I was just given a talk at the International Foot and Ankle Foundation’s 40th Annual Hawaii Seminar.
And at the end of the session, we got a couple of questions from the audience during the live Q&A for the doctors.

If you are running with pain in the ball of the foot that seems like a stress fracture, it could be a plantar plate sprain. If you get a plantar plate sprain right before a race, the obvious question is whether or not you should do the event.

If you have a sprain of the plantar plate ligament, you may still be able to run. You just have to decide how bad the injury is, what your long-term goals are, and how badly you want to to participate in the event.
