REVIEW ARTICLES

Sports Medicine Practice Economics
Part 1: Coding Basics
Brushing up on coding skills has two important benefits: ensuring that physicians are adequately paid for their services and protecting clinicians against audits. Focusing on the codes that are most useful in the sports medicine setting is a good starting point for those who treat active patients.
CHRIS MADDEN, MD; JAMES G. MACINTYRE, MD, MPE; ELIZABETH JOY, MD

High Hamstring Tendinopathy in Runners
Meeting the Challenges of Diagnosis, Treatment, and Rehabilitation
Deep buttock and thigh pain are two hallmarks of high hamstring tendinopathy, an overuse injury that is common in runners. Limited information is available on diagnosis and treatment, but a clinical group that has focused on injuries in runners has analyzed the biomechanics of high hamstring injuries, and they offer vital tips on diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation.
MICHAEL FREDERICSON, MD; WILLIAM MOORE, MD; MARC GUILLET, PT; CHRISTOPHER BEAULIEU, MD, PHD

Cutting-Edge Muscle Recovery
Using Antifibrosis Agents to Improve Healing
The effects of a muscle injury can be felt long after the initial injury has healed, because fibrosis can impede recovery and contribute to injury recurrence. Researchers have identified several promising therapeutic interventions that may interrupt scar-tissue formation, but the optimal timing and dosages still need to be determined.
