Load Carriage Increases Mechanical Loading Rates During Walking
Stress fracture is an overuse bone injury. It is a result of excessively repetitive loads acting on the bone over time which leads to fatigue induced bone microdamage [1,2]. Mechanical loading and loading rate are two major factors related to stress fracture development.
