Ye-ouch! April 22 2006
By A Runner - Published on
Format: Hardcover
It would not be stretching the truth too far to say I woke up one morning with a stress fracture of the femoral neck; a particularly nasty one. I am recovering nicely, thanks, but have yet to find anyone who can tell me how the heck I did it. So much for the nice 'warning' one is supposed to notice over a period of weeks. That didn't happen in my experience. Consequently, I am left trying to answer the question, How in the world did I get so far over the line and not know it? And, How do I keep from repeating this performance? This book is providing answers. It's technical. It will give the average non-scientist more information than they want to know; the section on research methodology made my eyes glaze. But, it is helping me construct an explanation of how I got here, and more importantly, how I can avoid a next time. If you already know a whole lot about bone remodeling, this book isn't likely to help you much. However, if like me, you didn't understand that bone undergoes microtears in response to loading, and has a pattern of repair that parallels muscle tissue, the contents can be revealing. Five stars minus one because I have no plans to publish research in this realm, but four stars for the questions I didn't know enough to ask, and the answers it offers. I recommend it.
