Pediatr Clin North Am. 2002 Jun;49(3):655-62, vii. doi: 10.1016/s0031-3955(02)00008-1.

Abstract

Chronic musculoskeletal pain is becoming increasingly common in young athletes. When these athletes do not respond well to standard treatments, for example physical theraphy and anti-inflammatories, other diagnoses must be considered, such as reflex sympathetic dystrophy, fibromyalgia, and/or overtraining syndrome.
