They are fractures that appear on a normal bone, by the effect of the sum of efforts, which in isolation would not produce any damage. It is a problem that extends more and more among athletes: 9 of 24 components of the USA soccer team in the 1994 world had had a stress fracture. They were initially described by Briethaup, a Prussian military doctor, in recruits in 1855, affecting the metatarsals. Called them March fractures or fractures of Deutschlander. Until 1958 were not described for the first time in athletes. They seem to be less frequent among blacks. They are more frequent in women than in men undergoing a similar training program.

However in athletes of less than 16 years the proportion is similar in boys than in girls. The bone that affects most frequently is the tibia, where you can receive different names due to confusion with other pathologies: shin splint, periostitis (or Fasciitis of inclusion of the soleus muscle in the face posterimedial of the tibia), compartmental syndromes chronic seems that fractures of femur and Tarsus are more frequent in older athletes and the tibia and fibula in younger athletes. All are sports that can be stress fractures. They are fissures that appear only in a cortical in the convex, which is the traction.
