What is Stress Fractures (Neck of Femur Fracture)?

Stress fractures within the hip occur when repetitive stress is placed on the femoral neck (upper aspect of the thigh bone) with insufficient recovery and rest between aggravating activities. The continual stress eventually affects the structural integrity of the bone leading to a stress fracture. Stress fractures typically present as a gradual increase in pain located in the anterior (front) and deep aspect of the hip. They are aggravated by weight bearing and typically occur in the young and healthy population who regularly participate in activities such as long distance running, gymnastics, and dancing.
