Risk Factors for Stress Fractures in Track and Field Athletes
The results suggest that it may be possible to identify female athletes most at risk for this overuse bone injury, and multiple logistic regression revealed that age of menarche and calf girth were the best independent predictors of stress fractures in women.
Risk Factors for Stress Fractures
The purpose of this paper is to critically appraise the existing literature by evaluating study design and quality, in order to provide a current synopsis of the known scientific information related to stress fracture risk factors.
Bone mass and bone turnover in power athletes, endurance athletes, and controls: a 12-month longitudinal study.
The results of this longitudinal cohort study provide further support for the concept that bone response to mechanical loading depends upon the bone site and the mode of exercise.
Ice-water immersion and delayed-onset muscle soreness: a randomised controlled trial.
The protocol of ice-water immersion used in this study was ineffectual in minimising markers of DOMS in untrained individuals and this study challenges the wide use of this intervention as a recovery strategy by athletes.
Epidemiology and site specificity of stress fractures.
Although a gender difference in rates is clearly evident in military populations, this is less apparent in athletes, and available data suggest that runners and ballet dancers are at relatively high risk for stress fractures.
Risk factors for stress fractures in female track-and-field athletes: a retrospective analysis.
The incidence and nature of stress fractures and the relationship of potential risk factors to stress-fracture history were investigated retrospectively in a group of 53 female competitive
Delayed onset of transversus abdominus in long-standing groin pain.
The finding that the onset of transversus abdominus is delayed in individuals with long-standing groin pain is important, as it demonstrates an association between long- standing groin pain and transversUS abdominus activation.
Natural History of Concussion in Sport
Delayed return to sport was associated with initially greater symptom load, prolonged headache, or subjective concentration deficits, and symptom assessment alone may be predictive of but may underestimate time to complete recovery, which may be better estimated with computerized cognitive testing.
Stress fractures: Pathophysiology, epidemiology, and risk factors
Both extrinsic and intrinsic risk factors for stress fractures refer to characteristics within the individual, including skeletal, muscle, joint, and biomechanical factors, as well as physical fitness and gender.
