Abstract

Attempts to prevent stress fractures have focused on improvements in the design of training equipment (see Chapter 15), the development of training regimes that gradually increase workloads without overloading the skeleton, 1-5 and only to a small extent on nutrition and diet. 1 However, these approaches are often ineffective. 6 Pharmaceutical therapies have not been devised, although there are several that have the potential to either prevent stress fractures or accelerate the recovery from a stress fracture. Currently, pharmaceutical agents are prescribed only for the treatment of inflammation and pain rather than to promote more rapid healing of the fracture.
