Osgood-Schlatter Disease: Practical Treatment for a Self-Limiting Condition

If an active adolescent has pain at the distal end of the patellar tendon, chances are good that it's Osgood-Schlatter disease. The primary antidote is activity restriction, the level of which should be matched to the severity of symptoms. Specific exercises, detailed in the accompanying Patient Adviser, may also relieve pain.

Coping With Osgood-Schlatter Disease

Exercise as Disease Detector

The heart and lungs aren't the only organs subjected to stress when people exercise. As various case examples show, exertion may evoke signs or symptoms that unmask such conditions as anemia, bladder tumors, gastrointestinal problems, nerve injury, and hypothyroidism.

E. Randy Eichner, MD; Warren A. Scott, MD


Weight Training Injuries: Part 2: Diagnosing and Managing Chronic Conditions

Weight training pays off in increased strength but sometimes exacts a price in the form of chronic injuries. These include not only musculoskeletal injuries like rotator cuff tendonopathy and clavicle stress fractures, but also neuropathies, vascular stenosis, and headache. Relative rest and correction of poor technique usually help.

Ronald K. Reeves, MD; Edward R. Laskowski, MD; Jay Smith, MD


Mountain Biking Injuries: Fitting Treatment to the Causes

In surveys, more than 80% of mountain bikers report having suffered traumatic injuries, and smaller but still major percentages report overuse injuries that cause knee, low-back, and wrist pain. Bike adjustments, described in detail here, are often the answer for treating and preventing overuse injuries.
