CASE REPORT

Pneumomediastinum From Sports-Related Trauma
Key Findings and Recommendations
Contact sports are a rare but well-known cause of trauma-related pneumomediastinum. This report, detailing the injury in a male hockey player, illustrates the key diagnostic and treatment features.
Kevin J. Curley, MD; Gary W Dorshimer, MD; Arthur R. Bartolozzi, MD; Peter F. Deluca, MD


REVIEW ARTICLES

NSAIDs and Musculoskeletal Treatment
What Is the Clinical Evidence?
Though NSAIDS are a popular adjunct for treating sports injuries and musculoskeletal conditions, their use in some instances may be counterproductive. Conditions that have an inflammatory component call for a more judicious use of NSAIDs.
Steven D. Stovitz, MD; Robert J. Johnson, MD

Swimming Biomechanics and Injury Prevention
New Stroke Techniques and Medical Considerations
Competitive swimmers rotate their shoulders more than 1 million times each week. Applying the newest thinking on swim biomechanics and shoulder strengthening helps keep patients' shoulders in the safe range.
James N. Johnson, MD; Jason Gauvin, PT, ATC; Michael Fredericson, MD
