Stress fractures are very common in sports medicine. These form as the result of repeated and cyclical loading of the bone.
Diagnosis requires an accurate clinical analysis, during which your physician should be informed of typical physical activity performed and any recent changes to loading that may have occurred.
Muscular lesions are among the most common injuries in sports medicine. These are the famous muscular injuries that often cause doubts and confusion and that represent some of the most common traumas in sports medicine (around 10-30% of all sports injuries).
The emergency treatment for fractures involving tibia or fibula is managed by the specialist physician of the first aid, who will be in charge of deciding whether to proceed with the reduction and subsequent immobilisation, or ask for the consultancy of the orthopaedic surgeon to arrange a surgical treatment.
