How should the female athlete triad be addressed in adolescent female athletes?

Orthopedics Today—June 15, 2018

In a point article by Orthopedics Today, HSS primary care sports medicine physician Marci A. Goolsby, MD, provided commentary on the question of how should the female athlete triad be addressed in adolescent female athletes.

According to Dr. Goolsby, the female athlete triad refers to the abnormal menses and affected bone health, such as increased risk of stress fractures and osteoporosis, that comes from an imbalance between an athlete’s nutrition and exercise.

Dr. Goolsby writes that "it is important that there is a positive culture around weight and body image in our young female athletes and that signs and symptoms of the female athlete triad are addressed promptly."

"Treatment will be focused on education and counseling in order to prevent the short-term and long-term consequences," she added.
