My older brother is a basket player. He has a stress fracture of the left foot. I know that it is a common sports injury. His doctor told that usually this kind of fracture needs some time to appear. Does anybody know how long it takes a stress fracture to appear?

Yes, the stress fracture does not appear suddenly. It occurs from repeated traumas. A stress fracture occurs when the forces are much lower, but happen repetitively for a long period of time. It is commonly seen in athletes who run and jump, such as runners, basketball players and ballet dancers.
