In brief: Not that common

Although sports medicine specialists will see plenty of these injuries, especially in athletic individuals over the age of 30, the actual prevalence in the community is far less than 5%.
Prevention of injury is best course of action, including good pre-participatory conditioning, including foot loading exercises and stretching.
