Pairing Exercise With Activity
New Tools for Inspiring Active Lifestyles
Do your sedentary patients' eyes glaze over when you urge them to get out and walk? Are you looking for new ways to encourage fit patients to remain active? Because physicians must cover many topics in a brief office visit, activity promotion must be both efficient and effective. Two simple tools that pair activity with patients' personality styles enable physicians to motivate and challenge with appealing and individualized exercise options.
James Gavin, PhD

Sports Dermatology Series
Cold, Wind, and Sun Exposure
Managing—and Preventing—Skin Damage
Punishing weather conditions are elemental to many outdoor sports activities. Some conditions, such as chilblains and Raynaud's phenomenon, are a nuisance, yet others, such as frostbite and sunburn, can produce painful and dangerous activity obstacles. Prevention and early recognition are the keys to keeping patients safe and active.
Mark Snowise, MD; William W. Dexter, MD

High Ankle Sprains
Minimizing the Frustration of a Prolonged Recovery
Among ankle sprains, those that involve the syndesmosis are dreaded because they often involve a long recovery time. Recognizing the telltale signs in the mechanism of injury and physical exam can guide prompt treatment, help set realistic return-to-play expectations for patients, and avoid late sequelae.
Andrew H. Smith, MD; Bernard R. Bach, Jr, MD
