S tress fractures are among the most common sports injuries and are frequently managed by family physicians. A stress fracture should be suspected in any patient presenting with localized bone or periosteal pain, especially if he or she recently started an exercise program or increased the intensity of exercise. Other possible sources of bone pain, including metastatic lesions, should be considered. Stress fractures can result from participation in many activities and sports, especially those requiring running and jumping. Athletics, or track and field sports, account for 50 percent of stress fractures in men and 64 percent in women. Participation in some sports that are not considered to be high-impact, such as platform diving and rowing (crew), also may cause stress fractures, particularly of the metatarsals and ribs. Hockey, golf, swimming, fencing, and softball have very low reported incidences of stress fractures.

Prevention of Osteoporosis and Fractures
University of Kansas School of Medicine-Wichita Wichita, Kansas
O steoporosis and low bone density are significant risk factors for morbidity and mortality in older adults. These conditions are characterized by poor bone strength and are associated with an increased risk of fractures from even slightly traumatic events, such as falls from standing height or lower. Vertebral fractures are the hallmark of osteoporosis, but hip, Colles' and other fractures are also common. Low bone density may be a silent condition until a complication occurs. Increased attention is being given to the early diagnosis and treatment of low bone density as well as the prevention of fractures. Several medications have recently been labeled for the treatment of osteoporosis, but their marginal benefits require careful consideration of their cost. Osteoporosis and Osteopenia As commonly defined, osteoporosis is a condition in which bone mineral density is 2.5 standard deviations below the average bone density in gender-matched young adults. Osteopenia is a less advanced state of low bone mineral density. The risk of fracture increases two to three times for every 10 percent drop in bone density.

    Peer Review Status: Internally Peer Reviewed Table of Contents A fracture is a break in the continuity of bone and/or cartilage. Management of the common fractures in children can be relatively easy, and the results are usually gratifying if a few fundamentals are skillfully applied. In contrast to the complex mechanical forces which break bones in adults, fractures in children result from simple injuries such as minor twists, falls on the outstretched arm and hand, fall from swing sets, etc. The types of breaks are rather characteristic, and prognosis is good and principles of treatment can be learned easily. A few fractures have serious implication, and these require care by an expert in children's fractures. This information is written primarily for providers.

    What Are Fractures?
    A fracture is the interruption of a bone’s wholeness.  A crack or a break in a bone is a fracture.  There are many different types of fractures:
    • Open or compound fracture: the fracture site is open to air because one end of the bone has broken through the skin. Closed fracture: neither end of the bone has broken through the skin. Complete fracture: the broken bone is completely separated at the break. Incomplete fracture: the broken bone is not completely separated at the break. Transverse fracture: a straight break across the bone. Spiral fracture or oblique fracture: usually caused by sudden, violent, rotating movements, such as twisting the leg during a fall. Comminuted fracture: there are more than two fragments of bone at the fracture.

    Compression Fractures
    What exactly are compression fractures? What causes them and how are they treated? A: Compression fractures occur when the vertebrae in the spine collapse from their normal height of an inch or so to about half that size. Osteoporosis is the most common cause, and a fall is often the precipitating event. Because the bone mass is decreased and weaker, a fracture may occur without any trauma at all. Sudden bending or lifting or even coughing could cause compression. Cancer invading the spine would be another, rarer cause of a compression fracture. Young people can also get compression fractures if they are weight lifters, gymnasts, or doing something very strenuous. The pain usually resolves after several weeks, but the patient will lose height, and there may be noticeable curvature of the spine.
