Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Three military recruits developed stress fractures in the sacral wing during rigorous elite basic training. Stress fractures in the sacrum have previously not been reported in a healthy population. Sacrum, like every bone of the pelvis and the lower limb that participates in weight bearing, may be susceptible to stress fracture following sustained excessive physical activity.
