dancegirl12step Posted September 21, 2010 Report Share Posted September 21, 2010 I had a stress injury to my second metatarsel at the end of june this past summer (2010). I caught it before it fractured but I was out of class in a boot for three weeks. I was, however, able to participate in my 3-week summer program in july and august without having to sit out of class. As soon as I started dance this September (at a new school), my foot has been hurting again. On the orders of the PT, I am not jumping and wearing my boot outside of class. I take calcium supplements and try to eat the number of calories for my BMI. I keep my foot, I ice it, and I get at least 8 hours of sleep a night. I don't drink coffee or soda. What am I doing wrong?? I am nervous that this will ruin my chances of a god part in the Nutcracker or cause me to get out of shape. Any advice at all is extremely appreciated!! Quote Link to comment
