BACKGROUND Tibial stress fractures increasingly affect athletes and military recruits, with few known effective management options. Electrical stimulation enhances regular fracture healing, but the effect on stress fractures has not been definitively tested. HYPOTHESIS Capacitively coupled electric field stimulation will accelerate tibial stress fracture healing. STUDY DESIGN Randomized controlled trial; Level of evidence, 1. METHODS Twenty men and 24 women with acute posteromedial tibial… CONTINUE READING
