Anniversary Commentary

Beyond the Exercise Prescription
Making Exercise a Way of Life

Giving a patient an exercise prescription is one thing, but getting him or her to use it—and keep on using it—is something else entirely. Success requires getting to know the patient and following up consistently.

Mona M. Shangold, MD


Heading the Ball in Soccer
What's the Risk of Brain Injury?

Soccer players may head the ball five to eight times a game, which adds up to a lot of smacks on the head over a season. This maneuver has not been convicted of causing harm, but there are grounds for concern.

Michael J. Asken, PhD; Robert C. Schwartz, MD


Meatless Diets in Female Athletes: A Red Flag

To many girls and young women, red meat spells "f-a-t," so they don't eat it. Physicians who do preparticipation screening should take note, because athletes who are in this camp increase their risk of mineral deficiencies, amenorrhea, and even disordered eating.

Alvin R. Loosli, MD; Jaime S. Ruud, MS, RD


Emergencies

On-Field Examination and Care
An Emergency Checklist

When an athlete falls down and doesn't get up, what happens next depends largely on the on-site medical staff's preparedness. This article offers guidance on pregame planning, the first assessment of an injured athlete, and decisions about immediate care.

Michael J. Stuart, MD


Controlling Blood Lipids

Diet and exercise can do much to improve blood lipid levels, but sometimes lifestyle measures must be reinforced with drug treatment. The authors explain the medication options and related issues such as the role of estrogen and certain lipid subfractions.

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