Vitamin D and Stress Fractures
Foot & Ankle International, 06/14/2012
McCabe MP et al. – Stress fractures are relatively common in high–risk populations,such as female runners and military recruits,in whom the first months of training have been shown to be a period of high bone turnover. The cost to the military in days spent on sick leave is significant,as is the number of training days lost and competitions missed for athletes. Research has improved the understanding of this entity and led to heightened awareness of the relationship of stress fracture to other clinical conditions, including amenorrhea and osteoporosis.
