From Oct. 29, 2013: The official line from the Red Cross, coaches, physiotherapists, and most doctors, is that there is a scientific method to dealing with a sprain – Ice, Compress, and Elevate (the so-called ICE method). But a recent position paper from the National Athletic Trainers Association says that's probably not the best approach to a sprain. After reviewing available science on the diagnosis, treatment, and rehab of sprained ankles, the most common joint injury in sports, the Trainers Association found that ICE was an oversimplified method and not effective at speeding up the healing process.

Looming physician shortage prompts medical turf wars
Sun Sentinel
From March 12, 2013: With more people likely to seek access to healthcare under the Affordable Care Act, medical professionals and legislators are worried that there won't be enough physicians in Florida to treat patients. And that is spurring turf battles in Tallahassee about who can provide various treatments, and more importantly, whether they need a medical degree to do so.
