(KTVI)- An increase in fatigue and stress related fractures is on the rise.
Doctors like Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Rick Lehman from the U.S. Center for Sports Medicine says a lot more patients have been coming into his office.
Fatigue fractures are caused by a dietary problem where the bones become weak and break little by little. Underlying problems such as Osteoporosis, Calcium and Vitamin D deficiency can be contributors.
These fractures aren't limited to older adults. They can also be identified in women and children.
Dr. Lehman explains.
