REVIEW ARTICLES

Plantar Fasciitis
Current Concepts To Expedite Healing
Overuse is the common denominator for many patients who seek medical care for plantar fascia pain. Though the diagnosis is usually straightforward, treatment can be complex, because there are many nonsurgical options. A combination of stretching, shoe modification, orthoses, and night splints helps most patients recover in 6 to 9 months.
James L. Glazer, MD; Peter Brukner, MBBS

Determining Clearance During the Preparticipation Evaluation
A physician's role in making team sports safe for young people hinges on the preparticipation exam. This excerpt from the recently updated monograph describes conditions that might preclude participation, along with guidance about balancing the risks of activity.
Working Group Of The Preparticipation Physical Evaluation, 3rd Edition

CLINICAL QUIZ

Shoulder Pain and Weakness
A 47-year-old man sustained external rotation trauma to his arm, and he eventually sought care several months later because of weakness and pain with activity. The results of physical tests provided clues for a diagnosis that was confirmed on MRI.
John D. Kelly IV, MD

COMMENTARY

Musculoskeletal Curricula in Medical Education
Filling In the Missing Pieces
Several studies have documented that most medical students graduate with inadequate musculoskeletal knowledge and skills. The time is ripe for broad curricular changes that will better prepare physicians to address musculoskeletal conditions, particularly the growing burdens of osteoarthritis and osteoporosis.
Elizabeth A. Joy, MD; Sonja Van Hala, MD, MPH
