Exercise and the Bottom Line
Promoting Physical and Fiscal Fitness in the Workplace: A Commentary

The workplace is an important front in the campaign to get more Americans moving. Physicians can use economic as well as medical arguments to encourage employers to provide exercise facilities and programs. Dr Roy Shephard offers another view.

Nicholas A. DiNubile, MD, with Carl Sherman


Do Work-Site Exercise and Health Programs Work?

Offering a different perspective from that of Dr DiNubile's commentary, the author critically analyzes the case for the efficacy of workplace exercise and wellness programs. He finds considerable evidence that such programs can improve workers' fitness and productivity and reduce healthcare costs, but getting workers to participate over the long haul is difficult.

Roy J. Shephard, MD, PhD, DPE


Osteochondritis Dissecans of the Elbow
Diagnosis, Treatment, and Prevention

Hard throwing puts intense stress on the elbow, sometimes leading to osteochondritis dissecans on the lateral side. The authors use the case of a 16-year-old baseball pitcher in discussing diagnosis and treatment, with special emphasis on comparing imaging techniques.

Trevor L. Hall, MD; Anthony M. Galea, MD


Skin Disorders of the Foot in Active Patients

Sometimes the most mundane problems can be major stumbling blocks to exercise and fitness. Here is a well-illustrated guide to recognizing and treating such common foot maladies as corns, blisters, tennis toe, plantar warts, and tinea pedis.

Craig G. Burkhart, MD, MSPH


Emergencies

Posterior Sternoclavicular Joint Dislocation
