Musculoskeletal injuries, including lower extremity bone stress injuries (BSI), significantly impact the United States Army due to limited duty days, trainee attrition, early medical discharge, and related financial costs. This session will provide BSI-related clinical and administrative management recommendations based on extensive analysis of current, peer-reviewed literature by a multidisciplinary expert panel. The speakers will incorporate leading practices applicable to Orthopaedics Sectionpedic and sports physical therapists, physical therapy educators, and entry-level students concerning clinical BSI management, including recommended imaging procedures and early intervention. The session's emphasis on evidence-based, leading BSI management practices will better prepare clinicians to evaluate, diagnose and treat BSI in the military or athletic environment.

Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

1. Describe the evidence for bone stress injury epidemiology, diagnostic imaging grading systems, return-to-activity timelines, and military readiness impact.

2. Apply clinical decision-making recommendations to enhance bone stress injury diagnosis through examination and ordering/referral for advanced imaging.

3. Apply bone stress injury rehabilitation programming recommendations to optimize patient outcomes while minimizing time away from activity.

4. Describe the framework for continuous quality improvement using population data mining, surveillance, and reporting.
