Stress fracture risk varies by race, sex

March 24, 2017

White U.S. Army soldiers were more likely to sustain a stress fracture over 10 years vs. soldiers of other races, with the highest risk observed among white women, according to findings from a retrospective cohort study.

“The increased granularity of the race-based analyses in this study provides a more in-depth description of race/ethnic origin as a risk factor for stress fractures,” Lakmini Bulathsinhala, MPH, of the military performance division of the U.S. Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine in Natick, Massachusetts, and colleagues wrote. “Importantly, the results of this study showed that for both sexes, non-Hispanic white soldiers have the highest risk of stress fracture, non-Hispanic black soldiers have the lowest risk, and Hispanic soldiers possess a comparatively intermediate risk.”
