Community-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus.

Abstract

Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), is a problematic infection which is becoming more common in a variety of athletic related environments. Early recognition, diagnosis, and timely management of infection can help minimize the severity of infection and decrease the rate of transmission. Since most sports physical therapists typically lack adequate knowledge and ability to identify cases of MRSA infection, the pur-pose of this review is to provide a background for associated risk factors, recognition, treatment, and prevention of community associated-MRSA in athletic environments.
