When considering whether or not to exercise with a stress fracture, the answer depends on what kind of exercise you are contemplating. Running, jumping, and playing tackle football are definitely out of the question when you have sustained a stress fracture. Low-impact activities like swimming, bicycling, yoga—and maybe even walking—are not only possible, but also something we often recommend for patients who are dealing with this injury. These kinds of activities are a great way to maintain conditioning and physical health while waiting for your fracture to completely heal.
