    Stress Fractures in Athletes: How to Prevent and How to Treat? The Balance of Returning to Sport and the Need for Safe Healing

    Speaker: Derek Kunz, MD, Saint Alphonsus Health System

    Youth sports can improve young kids' physical and emotional health, self-esteem, and even their relationship skills. Unfortunately, young athletes must also compensate for still-growing bones, tendons, and muscles. Sometimes sports injuries happen. The most common type of sports injury is an overuse injury such as a stress fracture. Overuse injuries are becoming more common in young athletes. Playing sports year-round without time off doesn't give young bodies enough time to rest and recover. It is important for parents and coaches to understand how to prevent stress fractures as well as the best treatment methods. This presentation will discuss signs and symptoms of a stress fracture, prevention techniques, guidance on when it is appropriate to follow up with a specialist, and appropriate treatments. 1 CDR CPEU, 0.1 NSCA CEU, 0.1 ACSM CEU
