European Journal of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine, 05/25/2012
Miletic D et al. – A 21–year–old female amateur long–distance runner presented with nonspecific low back and left buttock pain. Plain radiograph at presentation was unremarkable. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed extensive bone marrow oedema in the cranial part of the left sacral wing and oblique fracture line. After six weeks of moderate training and two months of tailored running program she felt sharp pain in her right buttock during landing on her right leg.
