'Weakest links' show greatest gains in relay races (7/30/2012)

The inferior members of swimming or running relay teams - those athletes who fared poorest in individual races - showed the greatest gains when performing as part of a team, and those gains were even greater during final races as opposed to preliminary races. ...> Full Article


Researchers study knee stress at tissue, cellular levels (7/27/2012)

Researchers study knee stress at tissue, cellular levelsA Cleveland Clinic research team is developing virtual models of human knee joints to better understand how tissues and their individual cells react to heavy loads - virtual models that someday can be used to understand damage mechanisms caused by the aging process or by debilitating diseases. Led by Ahmet Erdemir, Ph.D., the team is leveraging the powerful computing systems of the Ohio Supercomputer Center to develop state-of-the-art computational representations of the human body. ...> Full Article


Pre-season fitness makes no difference to risk of injury (7/23/2012)

But the type of sport played and gender did, according to a new study published in BioMed Central's open-access journal Sports Medicine, Arthroscopy, Rehabilitation, Therapy & Technology. This study into varsity athletics found that women had a shorter time to injury than men and that certain sports, such as volleyball, also had a significantly shorter time to injury than others, such as hockey or basketball. ...> Full Article


Undergoing multiple ACL surgeries allows patients to regain basic function, but not full activity (7/20/2012)

Patients who undergo repeated anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstructions, or repeat revision surgery, are unlikely to return to prior activity levels despite showing basic functional improvement according to research being presented at the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine's Annual Meeting today. ...> Full Article


Newer hip reconstruction technique provides good outcomes for athletes (7/19/2012)

A common, painful hip condition in elite athletes may be able to be repaired with an improved surgical technique, according to researchers presenting their work at the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine's Annual Meeting in Baltimore, Md., today. ...> Full Article

Common athletic hip disorder increases chances for sports hernia, study suggests (7/17/2012)

A sports hernia is a common cause of groin pain in athletes, however until lately little has been known as to why they occur. Researchers presenting their study today at the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine's Annual Meeting in Baltimore suggest that a type of hip condition (femoral acetabular impingement) might be a contributing cause. ...> Full Article


Stimulant marketed as 'natural' in sports supplement actually of synthetic origin (7/16/2012)

A new study published in the journal Drug Testing and Analysis found that DMAA, a stimulant often found in many nutritional and sports supplements, does not originate from natural substances and is actually comprised of synthetic compounds. ...> Full Article


Researchers hit back at early bodycheck theory (7/14/2012)

A University of Alberta study shows no evidence to back up the popular theory that teaching kids to body check earlier prevents injuries later. ...> Full Article


Study suggests new screening method for sudden death in athletes (7/11/2012)

Physics confirms sprinters are performing better than ever before (7/5/2012)

In this month's Physics World, Steve Haake, director of the Centre for Sports Engineering at Sheffield Hallam University in the UK, discusses the development of the "performance-improvement index," which uses very simple physics to compare the relative improvement of top athletes in different sports over the last 100 years. ...> Full Article
