that was great

Many high schools have P.E. trainers that can help with rehab.

great course was able to easily flow threw this case and it was a very relevant case to my practice for adolescent as well as adult ortho injury pain care.
by Timothy Brown | Feb 18, 2022
Good discussion of an important topic. Particular kudos for discussing the pyschosocial/emotional response to the injury. I think that the view of gabapentin is too favorable; consider that this drug was as excessively and unrealistically marketed as opioids were. TENS is also a waste of time, other than as a placebo procedure. Brief rest and immobilization followed by weight bearing and mobilization is the recommended treatment for nearly all adolescent ankle sprains, but you might not know that after reading this article.
