REVIEW ARTICLES

Sports Medicine Practice Economics
Part 3: Billing, Collecting, Appeals, and Related Tasks
Wise coding practices don't contribute to the office's bottom line unless physicians plan for proper follow-through. Billing and collections are important to a practice's financial health, as are other income-related issues such as scheduling and fee structure.

Peripheral Nerve Injuries in Weight Training
Sites, Pathophysiology, Diagnosis, and Treatment
Risk factors for peripheral nerve injuries in weight training are many, ranging from participant inexperience to the motion of the upper extremity during lifting. A detailed description of the patient's symptoms and exercise routine helps pinpoint the injury site. Rest and correction of poor technique are effective treatment options for most conditions.

CASE REPORT

Clay Shoveler's Fracture in a Volleyball Player
Revealing an Unusual Source of Pain
Sudden severe pain in the neck is unusual in the absence of trauma. However, in active people, repetitive muscle contraction at spinous attachments may cause stress fracture of a cervical or thoracic spinous process, known as clay shoveler's fracture. The unique pain pattern in an 18-year-old volleyball player led physicians to suspect the injury, but more advanced radiographic tests were needed to confirm the condition.
