Stress Fractures

by Sics Editore

A stress fracture should be suspected clinically when the patient gives a typical history of pain during exercise. Clinical examination is usually not reliable, and the diagnosis should be confirmed with imaging studies (x-ray, magnetic resonance imaging, bone scan).
