TUESDAY, Feb. 15 (HealthDay News) -- Stress fractures linked to overuse may be more common than thought among high school athletes, especially among those who participate in running-related sports, a new study finds.

Goodwillie is slated to present the findings on Tuesday at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons in San Diego.
