REVIEW ARTICLES

Exercise for Patients With Peripheral Artery Disease
The benefit of exercise for patients who have peripheral artery disease is so great that it recently warranted a CPT code. To optimize this therapy, physicians must know specific techniques for gauging patient fitness levels and for urging patients beyond claudication pain during exercise.
Andrew W. Gardner, PhD

Managing Low-Back Pain
Steps to Optimize Function and Hasten Return to Activity
Treating low-back pain in active people comes with extra uncertainties for physicians. Early on, relative rest and limited activity is the best strategy. Later, rehabilitation steps seek to restore normal function and maintain long-term injury prevention.
Jonathan A. Drezner, MD; Stanley A. Herring, MD

Psychiatric Conditions in Sports
Diagnosis, Treatment, and Quality of Life
Athletes are no more vulnerable than the general population to psychiatric illness and many other conditions such as violent behavior and substance abuse. The big difference, though, is athletes' hesitation to seek treatment. Successful intervention approaches recognize the sports environment.
Ira D. Glick, MD; Jessica L. Horsfall, MS
