Common Fractures Encountered in Athletes - Dr. Thomas Axelrad

Dr. Thomas Axelrad, Orthopedic Trauma Surgeon, discusses fractures that are common in sports, particularly in contact sports such as football and rugby. The most common injuries include fractured wrists, hands, collarbones and bones in the ankle and feet. Stress fractures are very common in sports which involve repetitive movements; long distance runners often suffer from stress fractures in the foot, for example.
