THE PHYSICIAN AND SPORTSMEDICINE - VOL 26 - NO. 10 - OCTOBER 2021


Anniversary Commentary

Tyrannized by Evidence?
Making 'Outcomes' Work for Our Patients

Guidelines are a two-edged sword: They can clarify and enhance treatment, yet hamper individualization of care. The author proposes an approach to musculoskeletal medicine that improves patient care in a climate of cost control.

Stanley A. Herring, MD


Emergencies

Ankle Sprains
Expedient Assessment and Management

When someone has injured an ankle, distinguishing a simple inversion sprain from a more serious injury is essential. The thorough assessment approach described and illustrated here will lead to a specific diagnosis and open the way to proper management.

Thomas H. Trojian, MD, MMB; Douglas B. McKeag, MD, MS


Controlling Blood Lipids
Part 1: A Practical Role for Diet and Exercise

A healthy blood-lipid profile goes a long way toward preventing or limiting coronary artery disease. The authors provide up-to-date information and simple recommendations for patients on the role of various fats, fish oil, antioxidants, alcohol, and aerobic exercise in controlling blood lipids. The role of medication will be covered in our November issue.

Tedd L. Mitchell, MD; Larry W. Gibbons, MD, MPH


Exercise Is Medicine

Exercise Against Depression

It's something of a catch-22: Exercise can ease symptoms of depression, but depression itself tends to make exercise difficult. The authors explain the case for exercise and offer suggestions for helping patients overcome the obstacles.

Michal Artal, MD, with Carl Sherman
