Endurance runners more likely to die of heat stroke than heart condition (7/31/2014)

Endurance runners more likely to die of heat stroke than heart conditionHeat stroke is 10 times more likely than cardiac events to be life-threatening for runners during endurance races in warm climates, according to a study published today in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. The authors noted the findings may play a role in the ongoing debate over pre-participation ECG screenings for preventing sudden death in athletes by offering a new perspective on the greatest health risk for runners. ...> Full Article


Melatonin reduces traumatic brain injury-induced oxidative stress (7/29/2014)

Traumatic brain injury can cause post-traumatic neurodegenerations with an increase in reactive oxygen species and reactive oxygen species-mediated lipid peroxidation. Melatonin, a non-enzymatic antioxidant and neuroprotective agent, has been shown to counteract oxidative stress-induced pathophysiologic conditions like cerebral ischemia/reperfusion injury, neuronal excitotoxicity and chronic inflammation. ...> Full Article


Detecting concussion-related brain disease in its earliest stages (7/28/2014)

Autopsies have shown that some high-profile athletes who suffered repeated blows to the head during their careers have unusual protein clumps in their brains. Those clumps suggest the athletes had a disease called chronic traumatic encephalopathy. Now, scientists are working on tests that might be able to detect CTE in its earliest stages, according to an article in Chemical & Engineering News, the weekly news magazine of the American Chemical Society. ...> Full Article


New study finds high school lacrosse players at risk for concussions, other injuries (7/28/2014)

In a study published online today by The American Journal of Sports Medicine, researchers found that high school players experienced 1,406 injuries over the four academic years from 2008 through 2012. The overall injury rate was 20 per 10,000 lacrosse competitions and practices. More than 22 percent of those injuries were concussions, making that the second most common injury diagnosis behind sprains and strains (38 percent). ...> Full Article


Running for life: How speed restricts evolutionary change of the vertebral column (7/24/2014)

Running for life: How speed restricts evolutionary change of the vertebral columnOne of the riddles of mammal evolution is explained: the conservation of the number of trunk vertebrae. Dutch and American researchers show that this conservation is due to the role of speed in survival of fast running mammals. They measured variation of 774 skeletons of fast and slow species. The researchers found that a combination of developmental and biomechanical problems prevents evolutionary change in the number of trunk vertebrae in fast, but not in slow mammals. ...> Full Article


Post-concussion 'return to play' decision for footballers should be made solely by doctors, says new editorial (7/23/2014)

An editorial published today in The Lancet Neurology calls for sports authorities to take into consideration the long term neurological problems that repeated concussions can cause. ...> Full Article


ACL reconstructions may last longer with autografts (7/22/2014)

Anterior cruciate ligament reconstructions occur more than 200,000 times a year, but the type of material used to create a new ligament may determine how long you stay in the game, say researchers presenting their work today at the Annual Meeting of the American Orthopaedic Society of Sports Medicine. ...> Full Article


New study may identify risk factors for ACL re-injury (7/21/2014)

Re-tearing a repaired knee anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) happens all too frequently, however a recent study being presented today at the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine's Annual Meeting suggests that identification and patient education regarding modifiable risk factors may minimize the chance of a future ACL tear. ...> Full Article


After a concussion, which teens will have emotional symptoms? (7/19/2014)

After a concussion, teens who are sensitive to light or noise may be more likely to also have emotional symptoms such as anxiety, according to a study released today that will be presented at The Sports Concussion Conference in Chicago, July 11-13, 2014, hosted by the American Academy of Neurology, the world's leading authority on diagnosing and managing sports concussion. ...> Full Article


What's a concussion? Review identifies four evidence-based indicators (7/18/2014)

A research review identifying the clinical indicators most strongly associated with concussion is an important first step in the process of developing evidence-based guidelines for concussion diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment, according to a new report published by Neurosurgery, official journal of the Congress of Neurological Surgeons. The journal is published by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, a part of Wolters Kluwer Health. ...> Full Article


New research identifies risk factors for little league shoulder (7/17/2014)

As cases of Little League Shoulder occur more frequently, the need for additional information about the causes and outcomes of the condition has become clear. Researchers presenting at the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine's Annual Meeting today shared new data identifying associated risk factors, common treatment options and return to play. ...> Full Article


Stabilizing shoulder surgery helps NFL players return to the game (7/16/2014)

Shoulder instability is a common injury in football players but the rate of return to play has not been regularly determined following surgery. A new study, discussed at the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine's Annual Meeting today details that return rates for NFL players is approximately 90 percent no matter what the stabilization procedure (open vs. arthroscopic). ...> Full Article


Young athletes should consider the benefits of ACL surgery (7/15/2014)

Young patients who wait for ACL surgery may be at increased risk for secondary knee injuries, according to research presented today at the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine's Annual Meeting. The study adds to existing research noting the risk of secondary meniscal and chondral injuries in pediatric patients. ...> Full Article

Long jumpers do better with a spring in their step (7/7/2014)

Long jumpers do better with a spring in their stepLong jumpers and triple jumpers spend hours training to perfect their take-off. But what influences their performance? Scientists have discovered that taking off from a compliant surface -- such as a springboard -- compared with a firm, unyielding surface, reduces the energy cost of jumping over long distances. ...> Full Article


Harnessing a personal rivalry can boost an individual's athletic performance (7/7/2014)

We can all think of great sports rivals: tennis players Andre Agassi and Pete Sampras, swimmers Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte, or basketball players Magic Johnson and Larry Bird. These fierce, personal rivalries seem worlds apart from a hometown 5K race. Yet even local races often produce rivals who push each other to higher levels of performance, according to new research that surveyed runners and used data from 184 races. ...> Full Article


Double standard? The use of performance-enhancing products (7/1/2014)

When professional athletes are found to be using performance-enhancing drugs, many people consider this an unfair advantage and say they are cheating. But when another person uses the same drug to overcome a disease or behavioral issue, society is more forgiving. A new study in the Journal of Consumer Research shows that people are more forgiving when the benefit is personal. ...> Full Article
