Concomitant use of opioids and benzodiazepines in the outpatient setting: A retrospective study
Benzodiazepines have been identified as a concurrent factor in opioid related deaths. Although the dangers of concomitant administration of opioids and benzodiazepines are well documented, implementation of this knowledge into practice may be lagging behind. (Source: PM and R)

Ultrasonographic Evaluation of the Femoral Cartilage, Achilles Tendon and Plantar Fascia in Young Women Wearing High-heeled Shoes
Specific attention on the musculoskeletal impact of wearing high-heeled shoes (HHS) has mainly focused on knee osteoarthritis and the literature is limited to biomechanical changes. Herewith, the distal femoral cartilage (DFC) has not been morphologically studied. Additionally, although heel elevation is coupled with a shear stress at the heel and overloaded calf muscles, Achilles tendon and plantar fascia thicknesses have not been assessed either.

Popliteal Artery Entrapment Syndrome – Return to Sport Considerations: A Case Report
This is a case of a 19-year-old female collegiate field hockey player with left leg pain, numbness and tingling. A comprehensive workup including dynamic ultrasound, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Magnetic Resonance Angiogram (MRA) revealed a type VI functional popliteal artery entrapment syndrome (PAES). There are many options for treatment of functional PAES including activity modification, botulinum toxin injection, and surgery. To the authors knowledge there is no published return to sport recommendation for post-surgical functional PAES . (Source: PM and R)

Treatment of Knee Meniscus Pathology: Rehabilitation, Surgery, and Orthobiologics
The meniscal tear treatment paradigm traditionally begins with conservative measures such as physical therapy with referral for operative management for persistent or mechanical symptoms. As a result, the partial meniscectomy is performed more than any other orthopedic procedure in the United States. This treatment paradigm has shifted as recent literature supports the attempt to preserve or repair the meniscus whenever possible given its importance for the structural integrity of the knee joint and the risk of early osteoarthritis associated after meniscus excision.

Frequency and circumstances of falls reported by ambulatory unilateral lower limb prosthesis users: a secondary analysis
More than 50% of lower limb prosthesis (LLP) users report falling at least once a year, placing them at high risk for adverse health outcomes like reduced mobility and diminished quality-of-life. Efforts to reduce falls among LLP users have traditionally focused on developing clinical tests to assess fall risk, designing prosthetic components to improve patient safety, and identifying risk factors to recognize potential fallers. Little attention has been directed towards recording, reporting, and characterizing the circumstances of falls among LLP users. (Source: PM and R)

Ankle joint and rearfoot biomechanics during toe-in and toe-out walking in people with medial compartment knee osteoarthritis
Toe-in and toe-out walking are two strategies which have been shown to be effective in reducing the knee adduction moment in people with knee osteoarthritis. However, despite a positive biomechanical impact on the knee, altering foot rotation may impart unintended forces or joint positions on the ankle that could impact joint health. The kinematic and kinetic changes at the ankle during toe-in or toe-out walking have yet to be examined. (Source: PM and R)

We thank Barnett and colleagues for their interest in our study. In their letter to the Editor, they asked for clarification on a number of points. The points are as follows: (1) clarify the inclusion/exclusion criteria, the manner in which subjects were randomized, and if allocation concealment or blinding of any party occurred; (2) clarify the process in determining the intensity level and duration of exercise; (3) clarify the basis by which the authors settled on a 3-week washout period, and if there is evidence to support their claim that the time period was sufficient; (4) provide the data used in their calculations &...

A Checklist for Analyzing Data
Understandably, when researchers get data, they are eager to learn what the data have to say regarding the main study hypotheses. This excitement, combined with looming deadlines, can result in researchers skipping the most important steps of a data analysis. For example, researchers might rush to run formal statistical tests that compare their groups before they have properly cleaned and vetted their data. In a proper data analysis, the bulk of an analyst ’s time is not spent on running final statistical models, but rather on tasks such as cleaning, checking, understanding, and plotting the data.

Profiling the isokinetic muscle strength of athletes involved in sports characterized by constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity: a cross-sectional study
Constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity (FMHI) is a type of strength and general conditioning program that has gained widespread popularity in recent years. The very intense exercises performed with lower and upper limbs may create muscular asymmetry or imbalance between agonist and antagonist muscles, and therefore the characterization of isokinetic muscle strength, side-to-side difference and balance ratios for lower and upper limbs may contribute to a better understanding of the modality characteristics.

However, the literature contains only 2 reports of MMRs introduced into rehabilitation settings [7,8]. (Source: PM and R)

Acute Spinal Epidural Hematoma as a Complication of Dry Needling: A Case Report
Dry needling is a procedure commonly performed for the relief of myofascial pain disorders. The procedure is generally well tolerated. Adverse events often are mild, but severe complications have been reported. This case report describes an acute spinal epidural hematoma as a complication of dry needling. It is a reminder to the performing physician or therapist to take specific precautions when placing a needle near the spine. Sudden onset of neuropathic pain post-needling therapy in and around the spine should prompt emergent assessment with possibly advanced spine imaging to evaluate the integrity of the spinal cord.

We present a 31 year-old woman with T3 AIS A spinal cord injury who developed recurrent AD while receiving duloxetine and amitriptyline combination therapy for neuropathic pain. After excluding other AD generators, duloxetine was discontinued and the AD episodes resolved. While secondary hypertension is a known side effect of amitriptyline and duloxetine, neither drug has been previously associated with AD. One potential mechanism for inhibition of duloxetine metabolism is discussed. (Source: PM and R)
