Abstract

Stress fractures have been described in almost any bone of the body. The distribution may vary by age, occupation (athlete or soldier), type of sport, and gender. The prevention or reduction of stress fracture incidence may be achieved by using a logical approach and applying interventions modifying external risk factors.
