REVIEW ARTICLES

Preparing Active Patients for International Travel
Many international competitors and recreational athletes don't have access to traveling physicians or specialized clinics before they travel abroad. Physicians can help patients navigate pretrip strategies for avoiding health obstacles, from acute infectious diseases to jet lag.
Carlos E. Jiménez, MD

Managing Myofascial Pain Syndrome
Sorting Through the Diagnosis and Honing Treatment
