REVIEW ARTICLE

Exertional Rhabdomyolysis
Early Recognition Is Key
Exercise rarely causes rhabdomyolysis, but when it does, the consequences can be life threatening. Physicians who can spot early symptoms of the condition and ensure that patients receive quick, effective treatment with saline infusion and buffering can improve patients' odds of avoiding consequences such as cardiac dysrhythmias, renal failure, and possibly death.
Thomas P. Brown, DO

Knee Pain and Bicycling
Fitting Concepts for Clinicians
When biking enthusiasts present with knee pain, a wide array of variables should be considered, from bike fit to equipment problems to individual biomechanics. A review of the most common conditions along with the most common contributing factors helps speed the diagnosis so that patients can quickly return to the trails.

ORIGINAL RESEARCH

The Risk of Death in Running Road Races
Does Race Length Matter?
Various studies have quantified the risk of exercise-related death in marathon runners; however, little is known about the risk of death in those who participate in shorter races, such as 10Ks and half marathons. A 5-year analysis of the number of finishers and deaths in 62 of the largest races found that the risk of death in running road races is significantly lower than the risk for marathons.
