In every issue of Lippincott's Bone and Joint Newsletter, we strive to provide you with cutting-edge developments in musculoskeletal medicine in both our CME and features articles. In the June 2018 issue, check out the CME article on co-existing pain conditions and treatment, for example. According to the article, female sex, older age, longer pain duration, and poorer physical health-related quality of life were significantly associated with an increased number of coexisting pain conditions. That's important information to know when planning treatment and outcome expectations. You might also want to pay close attention to the article on arthritis prevalence. You'll find the data in that feature helpful in organizing your practice to assist patients with arthritis and to advocate for resources associated with this diagnosis. I hope you enjoy this issue.
