REVIEW ARTICLES

The Obligatory Exerciser
Assessing an Overcommitment to Exercise
Health improvements and stress reduction are two important benefits of exercise, yet some recreational athletes participate to the point of negative returns. The arrival of the term 'obligatory exerciser' to the sports medicine lexicon sets up a thorough, nonjudgmental system for screening and treating symptoms that often resemble overtraining.

Practical Exercise Advice During Pregnancy
Guidelines for Active and Inactive Women
In past years, exercise advice for pregnant women was conservative and vague. As the research community puts the benefits and risks in clearer focus, physicians are in a better position to emphasize the many compelling reasons for an active pregnancy. Being aware of the contraindications to exercise and other sport-specific issues helps patients and their babies stay in a safe zone.

Sports Medicine Practice Economics
Part 2: Consultations, Modifiers, and Other Codes
Because of their primary care specialty status, sports medicine physicians may face difficult reimbursement challenges from insurance companies. A better knowledge of how to navigate three areas—consultations, modifiers, and other codes—can empower physicians to state their case and receive fair compensation. Coding areas to brush up on include fracture care, injections and arthrocentesis, and osteopathic mobilization.
