Deaths triple among football players, morning temperatures thought to play a role (2/29/2012)

Heat-related deaths among football players across the country tripled to nearly three per year between 1994 and 2009 after averaging about one per year the previous 15 years, according to an analysis of weather conditions and high school and college sports data conducted by University of Georgia researchers. The study found for the eastern US, where most deaths occurred, morning heat index values were consistently higher in the latter half of the 30-year study period ...> Full Article


Conventional thought on ACL injury mechanism challenged (2/19/2012)

Landing from a jump can cause a non-contact anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury. But evidence presented at the Orthopaedic Research Society 2012 Annual Meeting demonstrates that the injury mechanism that causes that ACL injury involves a combination of factors rather than a single factor as some have claimed. Many hold the view that an athlete ruptures the ACL via a single plane motion -- the tibia moving forward due to a large quadriceps contraction. ...> Full Article


Cold water baths reduce muscle soreness but evidence lacking on safety (2/18/2012)

Plunging into cold water after exercise may be an effective way to reduce muscle soreness, but it is unclear whether there are harmful side effects. These are the conclusions of a new systematic review of cold water immersion interventions published in the Cochrane Library. ...> Full Article


Elbow position not a predictor of injury (2/17/2012)

Elbow position alone appeared to not affect injury rates and performance in college-level, male pitchers say researchers presenting at the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine's Specialty Day in San Francisco, Calif. ...> Full Article


Helmet fit critical to preventing concussion, say researchers (2/16/2012)

Concussions and the issues that can occur following one, continue to be a serious problem for football players. However, one simple game strategy: proper helmet fit, may be one of the easiest game winners for prevention, say researchers presenting their study at the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine's Specialty Day in San Francisco. ...> Full Article


Treatment aids healing of elbow injuries say researchers (2/15/2012)

As elbow injuries continue to rise, especially in pitchers, procedures to help treat and get players back in the game quickly have been difficult to come by. However, a newer treatment called platelet rich plasma (PRP) may pose hope, according to researchers presenting their findings at the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine's Specialty Day meeting in San Francisco. ...> Full Article


Amateur football players not always keen on returning to play after ACL injuries (2/14/2012)

Despite the known success rates of reconstructive Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) surgery, the number of high school and collegiate football players returning to play may not be as high as anticipated, say researchers presenting at the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine's Specialty Day in San Francisco, Calif. ...> Full Article


Focus on self-improvement, rather than winning, benefits young athletes (2/13/2012)

Focus on self-improvement, rather than winning, benefits young athletesUnderserved youth athletes report more life skill and character development when their coaches place greater emphasis on creating caring climates instead of focusing on competition, according to research from Michigan State University's Institute for the Study of Youth Sports. ...> Full Article


To perform with less effort, practice beyond perfection (2/12/2012)

Whether you are an athlete, a musician or a stroke patient learning to walk again, practice can make perfect, but more practice may make you more efficient, according to a surprising new University of Colorado Boulder study. ...> Full Article


Risks of traumatic neuromechanical injury associated with boxing and mixed martial arts (2/11/2012)

Researchers simulated head and neck injuries from hook punches sustained during boxing and mixed martial arts and tested whether injury risks are mitigated by available head and hand padding. Padding lowered linear but not rotational impact dosages, and did not eliminate the risk of brain strain injury. The authors indicate the need for new standards of measuring head and neck injury risks, taking into account rotational and linear-rotational parameters, and improved protective padding to lower impact dosages. ...> Full Article


Padded headgear, boxing gloves may offer some protection for fighters (2/8/2012)

The use of padded headgear and gloves reduces the impact that fighters absorb from hits to the head, according to newly published research from Cleveland Clinic. ...> Full Article


Football findings suggest concussions caused by series of hits (2/7/2012)

Football findings suggest concussions caused by series of hitsA two-year study of high school football players suggests that concussions are likely caused by many hits over time and not from a single blow to the head, as commonly believed. ...> Full Article


Study flags over-reliance on computer tests in return-to-plan decisions after concussion (2/6/2012)

A new study by researchers at Indiana University-Purdue University Columbus and Pace University is critical of the widespread use of computerized neuropsychological tests in decisions regarding when athletes can return to play after suffering a concussion. The study points to inadequate levels of reliability and validity in the tests; their strain on brains that should be resting; and the fact that they miss elements that could be more important to recovery. ...> Full Article


Massage is promising for muscle recovery (2/3/2012)

While massage is well accepted as a therapy for relieving muscle tension and pain, the researchers delved deeper to find it also triggers biochemical sensors that can send inflammation-reducing signals to muscle cells. ...> Full Article
