Stress Fractures is a much-needed reference serves as your best source for up-to-date, organized information on stress fractures. Written by three leading authorities in this area, Stress Fractures covers the pathophysiology, epidemiology, risk factors, and treatment associated with these injuries.

The reference provides both theory about development of stress fractures and practical management of the various types and sites of stress fractures. It is an essential reference for all clinicians involved in the diagnosis, prescription, and management of these injuries.

Authors Peter Brukner, Kim Bennell, and Gordon Matheson draw together their extensive knowledge base and expertise to provide current and comprehensive information about the subject.

The pathophysiology and epidemiology of stress fractures are covered in the first two chapters. A general overview of diagnosis and treatment of stress fractures is provided in the following two chapters. In the concluding chapters, the management of specific stress fractures is described in detail for the upper limb, the trunk, the pelvis and thigh, the lower leg, and the foot and ankle.

Recent advances in nuclear isotope scans, CT scans, and MRI have enabled stress fractures to be detected and identified much more easily. Stress Fractures pulls together the important information on the topic and offers a valuable, practical guide to risk factors and treatment options for this increasingly prevalent type of injury.
