REVIEW ARTICLES

Hyperpronation and Foot Pain
Steps Toward Pain-Free Feet
Many musculoskeletal conditions that patients report have underlying biomechanical contributors. Identifying and correcting hyperpronation is the key to treating several causes of foot pain, including plantar fasciitis, posterior tibial tendon dysfunction, metatarsalgia, and hallux valgus.
Steven D. Stovitz, MD; J. Chris Coetzee, MD

Sports Dermatology Series
Identifying and Controlling Metabolic Skin Disorders
Eczema, Psoriasis, and Exercise-Induced Urticaria
Exercise and sports activities are an important consideration in the workup of patients who have inflammatory skin conditions. Symptoms can disqualify an athlete from competition. In other patients, these very symptoms present obstacles to adopting or maintaining regular physical activity.
Erik S. Adams, MD, PhD

CASE REPORT

A Locked Knee in an Adolescent Boy
Resolving Meniscal Pathology in Young Athletes
Physicians are more likely to hear about rather than see a young patient with a locked knee. In this case report, the patient could not flex or extend his knee and had joint-line tenderness. Keeping in mind meniscal injury as one of the diagnostic possibilities helped identify underlying pathology, which often isn't easy to see on MRI.
H. Wesley Dykes, Jr, DO; James Tytko, MD
