Overuse Syndromes of the Lower Extremity.
McKeag, Douglas B.; Dolan, Cathleen
Physician and Sportsmedicine, v17 n7 p108-12,114-16,121-23 Jul 1989
Discusses management of common overuse disorders, which are often a result of repetitive stress. Reducing inflammation through icing, rest, and use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents is the primary treatment goal. Patients taking anti-inflammatories must be cautioned against returning to activity too soon because the medication's analgesic effect may mask injury. (JD)
