Do all student athletes need heart screenings? (3/26/2011)

Parents may be wondering if enough is being done to identify athletes at risk for dying suddenly. In response, some communities have started programs to perform more extensive heart testing, including electrocardiograms. Yet an American Heart Association does not support such community programs due to a lack of evidence that they are able to reduce the number of sudden deaths. ...> Full Article


Don't shuffle on slippery surfaces (3/25/2011)

Don't shuffle on slippery surfacesBiomechanics researchers Timothy Higham of Clemson University and Andrew Clark of the College of Charleston conclude that moving quickly in a forward, firm-footed stance across a slippery surface is less likely to lead to a fall than if you move slowly. ...> Full Article


How to help heal an injured joint (3/24/2011)

Knee patients need patience: injuries to these joints take weeks to heal. Fraunhofer researchers have now developed a system that documents the healing process in detail. This motivates patients and at the same time helps doctors to fine-tune the course of treatment. ...> Full Article


For back, neck pain, artificial disc replacement has cost, outcome advantages over fusion surgery (3/23/2011)

When physical therapy and drugs fail to relieve back or neck pain, patients often turn to spinal fusion surgery as a last resort, but two new studies show that in certain situations, especially when several discs are involved, artificial disc replacement may give better long-term results at lower cost. ...> Full Article


Brain injuries rise sharply in minor hockey after body-checking rules relaxed: Study (3/16/2011)

Minor league hockey players in the Atom division are more than 10 times likely to suffer a brain injury since bodychecking was first allowed among the 9- and 10-year-olds. ...> Full Article


New model shows importance of feet, toes in body balance (3/14/2011)

Researchers are using a new model to learn more about how toe strength can determine how far people can lean while keeping their balance. The results could help in building robotic body parts that will closely imitate human movement, and might lead to a new generation of advanced prosthetics. ...> Full Article


Pitchers bean more batters in the heat of the summer (3/13/2011)

During spring training, you will find Major League pitchers practicing their pitches, perfecting their technique and strengthening their muscles to endure the grueling 162 game season. A new study published in Psychological Science, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science, suggests that hurlers might also consider the effect these sweltering months could have on their brains. ...> Full Article


In the best youth football teams, the first team players develop their bodies more rapidly (3/12/2011)

A number of studies have been undertaken on top younger football players who had already demonstrated that the vigor, rapidity and ability to self-orient themselves and progress are the skills that characterize those who play in the best teams. Biologist Jaime Zubero has extrapolated these studies to the Basque province of Bizkaia, ratifying the results. ...> Full Article


Brief video training dramatically boosts hands-only CPR attempts (3/11/2011)

Video training as brief as one minute led to participants being more likely to give hands-only CPR, at a rate and compression depth significantly closer to the ideal than those with no training. ...> Full Article


Rehabilitation within a day of knee replacement pays off (3/10/2011)

Starting rehabilitation sooner following knee arthroplasty surgery could pay dividends -- for both patients and hospitals. Commencing physical therapy within 24 hours of surgery can improve pain, range of joint motion and muscle strength as well as cut hospital stays, according to new research in the journal Clinical Rehabilitation, published by SAGE. ...> Full Article


New national study finds boxing injuries on the rise; youth head injury rates also concerning (3/9/2011)

The risk and nature of injury in the sport of boxing has generated a great deal of controversy in the medical community, especially in relation to youth boxing. A new study, conducted by researchers in the Center for Injury Research and Policy of the Research Institute at Nationwide Children's Hospital, examined boxing injuries among participants six years of age and older from 1990 to 2008. ...> Full Article


Study finds MRSA danger in gyms may be exaggerated (3/6/2011)

Community gym surfaces do not appear to be reservoirs for MRSA transmission, according to a study published in the March issue of the American Journal of Infection Control, the official publication of APIC, the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology. ...> Full Article


Scientists reveal new insights into tendon injury (3/3/2011)

Scientists have discovered how tendons -- the fibrous tissue that connects muscle to bone -- become damaged through injury or the aging process in what could lead to new treatments for people with tendon problems. ...> Full Article


Learning from old bones to treat modern back pain (3/2/2011)

The bones of people who died up to a hundred years ago are being used in the development of new treatments for chronic back pain. It is the first time old bones have been used in this way. The research is bringing together the unusual combination of latest computer modeling techniques developed at the University of Leeds, and archaeology and anthropology expertise at the University of Bristol. ...> Full Article


Study shows acupressure effective in helping to treat traumatic brain injury (3/1/2011)

Study shows acupressure effective in helping to treat traumatic brain injuryA new University of Colorado Boulder study indicates an ancient form of complementary medicine may be effective in helping to treat people with mild traumatic brain injury, a finding that may have implications for some US war veterans returning home. ...> Full Article
