REVIEW ARTICLES

Plantar Fasciitis
Prescribing Effective Treatments
Though running and jumping sports have a notorious role in plantar fasciitis development, most treatment studies offer little guidance for addressing return to play and other concerns of active patients. Clinical experience suggests that relative rest or at least training modification is needed to give nonsurgical treatments, such as stretching, time to work. Rehabilitation exercises are important for correcting or preventing biomechanical imbalances.
Michael Shea, MD; Karl B. Fields, MD

The Athletic Heart Syndrome
Ruling Out Cardiac Pathologies
Patients who participate in vigorous activities undergo cardiac morphologic changes that help them in their sport. However, these same changes often mimic other cardiac conditions such as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Diagnostic studies and detraining are the best techniques for delineating.
James C. Puffer, MD

ORIGINAL RESEARCH

Heat Balance Limits in Football Uniforms
How Different Uniform Ensembles Alter the Equation
Football season becomes a danger zone when warm weather collides with the need for protective gear. Researchers determined critical heat balance limits in non-heat-acclimatized men who wore various football uniform ensembles. The air temperature and humidity limits that they identified are helpful in implementing strategies to prevent heat-related illness.
