This text integrates contemporary basic and clinical research and epidemiological findings related to stress fractures. Written by experts in skeletal physiology, sports medicine, and orthopaedics, this book provides information on the etiology and pathophysiology of stress fractures.MUSCULAR FATIGUE AND STRESS FRACTURES Muscular Force in Musculoskeletal Energy Absorption Physical ... it is likely that most mammalian muscles serve a dual function: produce and absorb energy at different times during a cycle of ... on the other hand, can strain about 30% (0.3 strain) of their resting length while generating functional forces.18 Thus, for a given force of physiologic magnitude, a muscle has the ability to absorb about 100 times as much energy as a bone ofanbsp;...
