Announcements: Stress fracture study calls for service member participation

Title

Stress fracture study calls for service member participation

Body

Scientists at Womack Army Medical Center are conducting an exciting research study that seeks to hasten recovery of tibia (shin) stress fractures and are in need of volunteers.

Readiness remains the Army’s number one priority and stress fractures can take many months to heal. WAMC’s goal is to identify which program gets the Warfighter Fit and ready for full duty. Soldiers and Airmen between the ages of 18 and 50 will be evaluated by a physical therapist who will release them to participate in the study when it is safe to do so. Once evaluated, the service member will follow the prescribed rehabilitation program and meet with the research coordinator to ensure they are safely progressing through the program.
Service members will also need to currently receive their care at Fort Bragg, and are not scheduled to deploy or PCS within six months.  They are able to continue care from primary care and/or physical therapy while in the study.
Interested service members can contact the study team at 910-643-1922. Compensation may be available. This is a RHC-A IRB approved study.
