stress fx of inferior pubic rami
run10 posted:
I have a question...I am a distance runner, and I have been experiencing intense pain in my inferior rami region (rt side)...I can actually push on the bone and it makes me sick to my stomach...the pain is worse at night and feels horrible the days that I run. (9 on a pain scale from 1-10) I have also now started to have pain in my thigh and some that radiates down into my foot. I am wondering if this all is related and what is the best modality to use to dx this problem. I am an xray tech and know that general xrays do not always show stress fractures...does anyone know what to suggest? Thank you!

Bone scan can show it. If for some reason it would not show up as a stress fx Next step would be MRI

Remember to replace your running shoes every 300-400- miles or every 6 months. Many running related injuries are due to worn out footwear. More
