Scientists work to engineer an injectable therapy for rotator cuff injuries (11/30/2013)

Scientists work to engineer an injectable therapy for rotator cuff injuriesA research team at Georgia Tech is attempting to engineer an injectable therapy for the shoulder's supraspinatus tendon, a rotator cuff tendon that is commonly torn in sports. When the tendon is damaged, the body makes things worse by activating enzymes that further break down the tendon. The scientists hope to develop an injectable compound that would deliver an inhibitor capable of blocking these enzymes, thereby reducing the severity of the injury or even healing the tissue. ...> Full Article


Scientists far from finish line in understanding anemia in female athletes (11/22/2013)

When Kaitlyn Patterson's fatigue progressed to hyperventilating even during slow runs, and then forced her to quit high school distance running for the season, she knew something was very wrong. ...> Full Article


Brain still injured from concussion after symptoms fade (11/21/2013)

After a mild concussion, special brain scans show evidence of brain abnormalities four months later, when symptoms from the concussion have mostly dissipated, according to research published in the Nov. 20, 2013, online issue of Neurology®, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology. ...> Full Article


'What could possibly go wrong?' A lot (11/19/2013)

The Tough Mudder, an extreme sports event that bills itself as "probably the toughest event on the planet," resulted in injuries ranging from multiple electrical burns to seizure-induced Todd's paralysis. A case series of serious injuries sustained by participants in one such race was reported online today in Annals of Emergency Medicine -- "Unique Obstacle Race Injuries at an Extreme Sports Event: A Case Series." ...> Full Article


Study finds gymnasts' face high exposure to flame retardants (11/15/2013)

Competitive gymnasts have a higher exposure to potentially harmful flame-retardants than the general population, likely because such contaminants are present in foam used in gym equipment, a study led by Boston University School of Public Health researchers has found. ...> Full Article

'Smart foam' takes aim at concussions by measuring helmet impact (11/10/2013)

'Smart foam' takes aim at concussions by measuring helmet impactCombining nanotechnology with foam, BYU student Jake Merrell has created a smart-foam that can be placed inside a football helmet to measure the impact of each hit. When compressed, the self-powered foam generates electrical signals that are transmitted wirelessly to a tablet or computer in the hands of a coach or trainer. ...> Full Article

New ligament discovered in the human kneeTwo knee surgeons at University Hospitals Leuven have discovered a previously unknown ligament in the human knee. This ligament appears to play an important role in patients with anterior cruciate ligament tears. ...> Full Article


Treadmill step training promotes motor function after incomplete spinal cord injury (11/8/2013)

Treadmill step training promotes motor function after incomplete spinal cord injuryA large body of evidence shows that spinal circuits are significantly affected by training, and that intrinsic circuits that drive locomotor tasks are located in lumbosacral spinal segments in rats with complete spinal cord transection. ...> Full Article


Intelligent training with a fitness shirt and an e-bike (11/7/2013)

How do we know what the optimum level of training is? A fitness shirt will help us avoid overstraining and under-exertion in the future. The clue: it becomes an intelligent training device when combined with an electric bike and a smartphone. ...> Full Article


Extensive study on concussions in youth sports finds 'culture of resistance' for self-reporting injury (11/6/2013)

Young athletes in the US face a "culture of resistance" to reporting when they might have a concussion and to complying with treatment plans, which could endanger their well-being, says a new report from the Institute of Medicine and National Research Council. The report provides a broad examination of concussions in a variety of youth sports with athletes aged five to 21. ...> Full Article


Study finds high rate of lower back injuries in young athletes (11/5/2013)

Lower back injuries are the third most common injuries suffered in athletes under age 18. Many injuries are severe enough to sideline young athletes for one-to-six months, and put them at future risk for long-term back problems, a study has found. ...> Full Article

Pain processes in tennis elbow illuminated by PET scanning (11/2/2013)

Pain processes in tennis elbow illuminated by PET scanningPhysiological processes in soft tissue pain such as chronic tennis elbow can be explored using diagnostic imaging methods. This is demonstrated by researchers from Uppsala University and the results are now being published in the prestigious journal PLOS ONE. The pain physician and researcher Magnus Peterson is presenting a new use of positron emission tomography (PET) and a tracer for the signal receptor NK1 for visualising a physiological process associated with pain. ...> Full Article
