Calcific Tendinitis of the Shoulder
Diagnosis and Simple, Effective Treatment

A patient who complains of severe shoulder pain that seems to have come out of nowhere may have calcific tendinitis. Here are detailed instructions for a treatment that works quickly and well: using a hypodermic needle to break up the calcium deposits and inject a corticosteroid.

William B. Wolf III, MD


Managing Common Nail Disorders in Active Patients and Athletes

The stresses and blows that sports and exercise inflict on nails can cause or contribute to problems like subungual hematomas, splinter hemorrhages, nail deformities, and paronychia. Diagnosis and treatment generally aren't complicated, but an apparent subungual hemorrhage can sometimes signal a serious systemic disease.

Elizabeth L. Tanzi, MD; Richard K. Scher, MD


Allergen-Mediated Disease
Keeping Patients Active

For many people, the thought of running through a field of wildflowers or gliding through the woods on skis triggers memories of a runny, itchy nose or a painful struggle to breathe freely. But a multipronged attack on such allergic reactions can make exercise more comfortable for most patients. Several tables provide handy guidance for selecting medications.

John W. O'Kane, MD; Ginger A. Woodford, PharmD
