UNLABELLED The fatigue life of bone is inversely related to strain magnitude. Decreasing stride length is a potential mechanism of strain reduction during running. If stride length is decreased, the number of loading cycles will increase for a given mileage. It is unclear if increased loading cycles are detrimental to skeletal health despite reductions in strain. PURPOSE To determine the effects of stride length and running mileage on the probability of tibial stress fracture. METHODS Ten… CONTINUE READING
