Stress fractures occur from tiny cracks in the bones from repetitive activity, referred to as cumulative trauma. Usually, stress fractures occur in the tibial and metatarsal bones but they can occur in any weight-bearing bones. Stress fractures occur in people who undergo a great deal of physical activity, such as military personnel, athletes, and runners.
