Many initial laboratory and radiologic studies can be ordered at this time to aid in clinical decision-making. For some tests, the patient may need to be referred to regional facilities or larger laboratories, and this time should be used to begin forming a relationship with the athlete.

Few patients with anorexia complain of the classic chest pain or shortness of breath until late in the course of the disease. If the athlete develops a fracture or stress fracture that requires surgical intervention, referral to an orthopedist is needed. Many such injuries can be managed nonoperatively; however, femoral neck stress fractures or compression vertebral fractures may require consultation with a specialist.

Traumas Traumatic etiology often is correlated to motor vehicle accidents or work accidents. (For more information, visit Medscape’s .) Traumas or injuries may be acute or continued, mild or severe; for example, a mild continued trauma occurs in the foot of dancers.

The first written report on foot injuries is found in Roman war surgery books, in which amputation already is suggested as the elective treatment for serious foot damages. The introduction of antisepsis and analgesia and the anatomic studies of the foot improved surgical treatment. Foot surgery began to be more accurate and sophisticated, as surgeons sought a proper functional reconstruction rather than a pure morphologic restoration

a normal physiological response—proliferation of the stratum corneum. One of the primary roles of the stratum corneum is to provide a barrier to mechanical injury. Any insult compromising this barrier causes homeostatic changes and the release of cytokines into the epidermis, stimulating an increase in synthesis of the stratum corneum. When the insult is chronic and the mechanical defect is not repaired, hyperplasia and inflammation are common. [ ] With corns, external mechanical forces are focused (...) Tethered spinal cord syndrome [ ] Vascular occlusion syndromes [ ] (ie, verruca vulgaris) [ ] Faulty mechanics play a role.
