Stress Fractures

Stress fractures are a common injury characterized by tiny cracks in bones due to repetitive force or overuse. They often occur in weight-bearing bones like the shins, feet, or hips and can cause significant discomfort and limitations in physical activity. Addressing stress fractures requires a multifaceted approach, including proper rest, appropriate footwear, and nutritional support. Medical foods can play a valuable role in supporting bone health and aiding in the recovery process.

What causes stress fractures?

Stress fractures are small cracks in bones from repetitive force. Overuse or repetitive activities, especially in athletes or individuals with sudden increases in physical activity, commonly lead to stress fractures. Poor footwear, improper training techniques, and hard surfaces can exacerbate this risk. Nutritional deficiencies, particularly inadequate calcium or vitamin D intake, weaken bones, increasing susceptibility. Biomechanical factors such as flat feet or high arches alter weight distribution, placing excessive stress on certain bones, often leading to stress fractures.
