Author information

  • 1Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, WI, USA.


Stress fractures can occur in any active individual, from the weekend warrior to the elite athlete. As these injuries occur, it is important to understand how bones respond to the stresses placed on them. The understanding of potential intrinsic and extrinsic causes is important in treatment of these injuries. The proper identification and prevention of these stress injuries allows for athletes to return to activity expeditiously.
