5 Predictors of Return to Sport After Bone Stress Injury -

πŸ‘‰πŸ»What determines how long it will take an athlete to return to sport following a bone stress injury? πŸ€”

Return to Sport after Bone Stress Injuries

πŸ‘‰πŸ»In a study 212 college track and field + cross country athletes were followed prospectively through their competitive seasons after having bone density scans, answering questionnaires on nutritional behaviours & menstrual patterns & prior injuries + other tests πŸ‘€
πŸ‘‰πŸ»34 (12 male, 22 female) of the 211 athletes sustained 61 bone stress injuries across the 5 years study period 🦴
☝🏻The above 1-5 were associated with delayed recovery from bone stress injury and MRI bone stress injury grading ⌛️
‼️TAKE HOME: The authors concluded that when a bone stress injury is diagnosed or suspected, MRI imaging, measuring bone mineral density (BMD), identifying the site of injury (cortical or trabecular), and obtaining a history of nutritional and menstrual status should be utilised. The results also provide evidence that optimising bone mass may not only reduce the risk of sustaining a bone stress injury, but also contribute to reduced recovery time πŸ”Ž
