Multiple ACL surgery techniques effective in helping athletes return to play (3/27/2013)

Orthopaedic surgeons have debated the effectiveness of the single versus double-bundle method of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) repair for years. However new data shows both techniques lead to similarly effective outcomes for patients, according to researchers presenting their work today at the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine's Specialty Day in Chicago, Ill. ...> Full Article


Platelet-rich plasma significantly improves outcomes in patients with tennis elbow (3/26/2013)

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy has been used to manage pain associated with torn tendons, muscles and ligaments, mostly in athletes, at all levels, though the evidence to support its efficacy is weak. Researchers at the Rothman Institute at Jefferson participated in a multi-center randomized prospective study to evaluate the clinical value of PRP versus an active control group to determine its effectiveness in managing the pain and tenderness associated with tennis elbow. ...> Full Article


To forgive or not to forgive: What Josh Hamilton tells us about sports fandom (3/25/2013)

Celebrity confessionals are becoming more commonplace, and it is important that events be examined from the perspective of fans. After analyzing a fan forum, Sanderson and Emmons found that most people forgave Hamilton through: offering support; "addiction is hard" narratives; human condition attributions; and justification. There were also some people who withheld forgiveness from Hamilton due to his perceived character flaws. ...> Full Article


Docking technique to repair torn elbow ligament yields favorable results in teen baseball players (3/24/2013)

A study at Hospital for Special Surgery found that a surgical procedure known as the "docking technique" to repair a torn elbow ligament in teenage athletes yielded favorable results. The outcomes were better than those in previously published reports on reconstruction of the ulnar collateral ligament, also known as Tommy John surgery, in this age group and may be attributed to technique-specific factors, according to the study authors. ...> Full Article


Elite athletes also excel at some cognitive tasks (3/20/2013)

Elite athletes also excel at some cognitive tasksNew research suggests that elite athletes -- Olympic medalists in volleyball, for example -- perform better than the rest of us in yet another way. These athletes excel not only in their sport of choice but also in how fast their brains take in and respond to new information -- cognitive abilities that are important on and off the court. ...> Full Article

No good evidence that mouthguards and helmets ward off concussion (3/13/2013)

Mouthguards and helmets can help ward off other serious head and facial injuries, but there is no good evidence that they can help prevent concussion, and paradoxically, they may even encourage players to take greater risks. ...> Full Article
