Direct aanmelden


Online @home
19:00 - 21:00 UUR


In this PowerTalk we will discuss a) prevention strategies of bone stress injuries; and, b) treatment strategies for the most common bone stress injuries.

We will focus on the two most common bone stress injuries in runners: 5th metatarsal bone stress injuries and tibial bone stress injuries. Epidemiology and risk factors of these bone stress injuries will be discussed, including relative energy deficit in sport (RED-S) and biomechanical risk factors.

Discussion of treatment strategies will include load management, progressive resistive exercises, shoe prescription, and how to guide the return to run process in runners recovering from a bone stress injury.


  • Participants will be able to recognize the main risk factors of bone stress injuries in runners
  • Participants will be able to design a bone loading program to address risk factors of bone stress injuries in runners
  • Participants will be able to describe a rehabilitation program for the two most common bone stress injuries: metatarsal stress fractures and tibial bone stress injuries.
