reoccuring stress fracture in the fibula

Hi, I'm a ballet dancer. I dance over 14 hours a week in pointe shoes. My ankle started hurting last year around December. I ignored the paing until I had a break in June. My doctor told me that I had a stress fracture and I needed to stay off of it for six weeks. I did as he told me. I didn't dance or do any real activity (besides walking). I came back to dancing and about 4 weeks later my ankle started hurting again similar to the way it hurt before I took 6 weeks off. I went back to my doctor and he told me that I had reflared my stress fracture. I have been off of it for two and a half weeks now. I am very worried that it will become cronic and become a major problem in my dancing. Is there any information you could give me about how a stress fracture becomes cronic, and could you give me any advice on how to keep this frome happening. Thank you so much for your time.

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
