Sports-Induced Inflammation in Lower Extremities

The authors of this paper (sports medicine specialists) explain that tendinitis, apophysitis, and faciitis are among the most common sports injuries of the lower extremities. Inflammation is caused by repetitive overstress, and consequently professional and serious amateur athletes are most often affected.

But these ailments can also occur with only one or two episodes of unaccustomed activity.

The article is a highly instructional guide with point-by-point descriptions of such commonly encountered problems as:

* Quadriceps atrophy
* Patellar tendinitis (jumper's knee)
* Osgood-Schlatter traction apophysitis
* Achilles tendinitis
* Server's traction apophysitis
* Plantar faciitis

These topics are discussed in terms of patient examination, evaluation and treatment options. Illustrations with informative captions amplify the insights provided in the text. This is an outstanding review article for busy practitioners.
