Evidence shows concussions require long-term follow-up for players (2/26/2013)

As the National Football League braces for lawsuits by 4000 former players alleging the league failed to protect them from the long-term consequences of concussions, game-changing research by a leading Canadian researcher shows damage to the brain can persist for decades after the original head trauma. ...> Full Article


5-year follow-up - over half of all ACL reconstructions could be avoided (2/14/2013)

In 2010, researchers from Lund University reported that 60 percent of all anterior cruciate ligament reconstructions could be avoided in favor of rehabilitation. The results made waves around the world, and were met with concerns that the results would not hold up in the long term.A follow-up study that confirms the results have now been published. The risk of osteoarthritis and meniscal surgery is no higher for those treated with physiotherapy alone. ...> Full Article


Surgeons find better ways to treat nerve compression disorder that can sideline athletes (2/13/2013)

Surgeons find better ways to treat nerve compression disorder that can sideline athletesTwo new studies from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis suggest ways to improve surgical treatment for a debilitating condition caused by compressed nerves in the neck and shoulder. ...> Full Article


Fallout from nuclear testing shows that the Achilles tendon can't heal itself (2/13/2013)

Notorious among athletes and trainers as career killers, Achilles tendon injuries are among the most devastating. Now, by carbon testing tissues exposed to nuclear fallout in post WWII tests, scientists have learned why: Like our teeth and the lenses in our eyes, the Achilles tendon is a tissue that does not repair itself. ...> Full Article


Traumatic brain injury complications common among US combat soldiers (2/9/2013)

US soldiers in combat often suffer constricted blood vessels and high pressure in the brain, which are significant complications of traumatic brain injuries. A transcranial Doppler is a non-invasive, inexpensive and portable way to assess these complications. ...> Full Article


In combat vets and others, high rate of vision problems after traumatic brain injury (2/7/2013)

Visual symptoms and abnormalities occur at high rates in people with traumatic brain injury (TBI) -- including Iraq and Afghanistan War veterans with blast-related TBI, reports a study, "Abnormal Fixation in Individuals with AMD when Viewing an Image of a Face," in the Feb. issue of Optometry and Vision Science, official journal of the American Academy of Optometry. ...> Full Article


Chili peppers spark discovery (2/5/2013)

Chili peppers spark discoveryAs research efforts go, this one is high risk. Which is to say, it could easily fail.And it's high reward. Meaning it could provide some relief to concussions and subsequent health effects seen in athletes, soldiers and other head-injury victims.The National Football League thinks enough of the work that its charitable arm has given Krzysztof Czaja (pronounced K-shish-toff Chai-uh), a Washington State University neuroscientist, $100,000 to keep looking. ...> Full Article


Sports concussion-risk studies to include hockey and baseball (2/2/2013)

Virginia Tech is expanding its research into helmeted sports beyond football, due to new research that allows for better prediction of sports-related concussions resulting from linear and rotational head accelerations. These accelerations result from head impacts that cause the head to translate and twist about the neck. The new research is published this month in the Annals of Biomedical Engineering. ...> Full Article
