Stress fractures are several of the most common sports injuries. Stress fractures usually cause dull pain around the site of the crack. This pain usually obtains worse while exercising, strolling, or standing. Many sporting activities increase the risk of stress fractures. Activities that require leaping and running may cause fractures in the legs or feet. More than fifty percent of all adult and adolescent stress fractures occur in the lower leg bones. Of these, fractures of the shin-- the lengthy bone of our lower leg-- are the most common at about 24% of all stress fractures.
