Bone Stress Injuries

Bone stress injuries are overuse injuries caused by repeated demanding activities that are transmitting weight onto bones. Running and jogging are examples of these types of activities. Often, athletes don’t allow for adequate recovery periods and as a result, the bones will be unable to withstand the ongoing stress. This results in localized bone pain in the affected area. These injuries are said to account for 10% of all sports related injuries.
