AJSM August 2016 Podcast: Femoral Neck Stress Fracture: Can MRI Grade Help Predict Return-to-Running Time?
Limited research is available regarding return-to-running (RTR) time after femoral neck stress fractures. While studies have shown the prognostic value of image-based grading scales for stress fractures at other sites, few have included femoral neck stress fractures.
This study found that grade 2 to 4 femoral neck stress fractures require longer RTR time than do grade 1 injuries. Also, patients with lower BMI tend to require a longer RTR time.
