A sprain is a joint injury in which some of the fibers of a supporting ligament are ruptured but the continuity of the ligament remains intact. A strain is an overstretching or overexertion of some part of the musculature.Death, Sudden, Cardiac: Unexpected rapid natural death due to cardiovascular collapse within one hour of initial symptoms. It is usually caused by the worsening of existing heart diseases. The sudden onset of symptoms, such as CHEST PAIN and CARDIAC ARRHYTHMIAS, particularly VENTRICULAR TACHYCARDIA, can lead to the loss of consciousness and cardiac arrest followed by biological death. (from Braunwald's Heart Disease: A Textbook of Cardiovascular Medicine, 7th ed., 2005)Epitestosterone: The 17-alpha isomer of TESTOSTERONE, derived from PREGNENOLONE via the delta5-steroid pathway, and via 5-androstene-3-beta,17-alpha-diol.

(Stedman, 25th ed, p346)Wheelchairs: Chairs mounted on wheels and designed to be propelled by the occupant.Hockey: A game in which two parties of players provided with curved or hooked sticks seek to drive a ball or puck through opposite goals. This applies to either ice hockey or field hockey.Foot Injuries: General or unspecified injuries involving the foot.Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome: A syndrome characterized by retropatellar or peripatellar PAIN resulting from physical and biochemical changes in the patellofemoral joint. The pain is most prominent when ascending or descending stairs, squatting, or sitting with flexed knees. There is a lack of consensus on the etiology and treatment. The syndrome is often confused with (or accompanied by) CHONDROMALACIA PATELLAE, the latter describing a pathological condition of the CARTILAGE and not a syndrome.Biomechanical Phenomena: The properties, processes, and behavior of biological systems under the action of mechanical forces.Competitive Behavior: The direct struggle between individuals for environmental necessities or for a common goal.Students: Individuals enrolled in a school or formal educational program.Adaptation, Physiological: The non-genetic biological changes of an organism in response to challenges in its ENVIRONMENT.Basal Ganglia Diseases: Diseases of the BASAL GANGLIA including the PUTAMEN; GLOBUS PALLIDUS; claustrum; AMYGDALA; and CAUDATE NUCLEUS. DYSKINESIAS (most notably involuntary movements and alterations of the rate of movement) represent the primary clinical manifestations of these disorders. Common etiologies include CEREBROVASCULAR DISORDERS; NEURODEGENERATIVE DISEASES; and CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA.Electrocardiography: Recording of the moment-to-moment electromotive forces of the HEART as projected onto various sites on the body's surface, delineated as a scalar function of time.

Factors involved are intra-articular disease and integrity of extra-articular structures such as joint capsule, ligaments, and muscles.Echocardiography: Ultrasonic recording of the size, motion, and composition of the heart and surrounding tissues. The standard approach is transthoracic.Anaerobic Threshold: The oxygen consumption level above which aerobic energy production is supplemented by anaerobic mechanisms during exercise, resulting in a sustained increase in lactate concentration and metabolic acidosis. The anaerobic threshold is affected by factors that modify oxygen delivery to the tissues; it is low in patients with heart disease. Methods of measurement include direct measure of lactate concentration, direct measurement of bicarbonate concentration, and gas exchange measurements.Mouth Protectors: Devices or pieces of equipment placed in or around the mouth or attached to instruments to protect the external or internal tissues of the mouth and the teeth.Tooth Injuries: Traumatic or other damage to teeth including fractures (TOOTH FRACTURES) or displacements (TOOTH LUXATION).Hypertrophy, Left Ventricular: Enlargement of the LEFT VENTRICLE of the heart.

It is characterized by degeneration or NECROSIS followed by revascularization and reossification. Osteochondrosis often occurs in children causing varying degrees of discomfort or pain. There are many eponymic types for specific affected areas, such as tarsal navicular (Kohler disease) and tibial tuberosity (Osgood-Schlatter disease).Heart Rate: The number of times the HEART VENTRICLES contract per unit of time, usually per minute.Rupture: Forcible or traumatic tear or break of an organ or other soft part of the body.Range of Motion, Articular: The distance and direction to which a bone joint can be extended. Range of motion is a function of the condition of the joints, muscles, and connective tissues involved. Joint flexibility can be improved through appropriate MUSCLE STRETCHING EXERCISES.Patellar Ligament: A band of fibrous tissue that attaches the apex of the PATELLA to the lower part of the tubercle of the TIBIA. The ligament is actually the caudal continuation of the common tendon of the QUADRICEPS FEMORIS. The patella is embedded in that tendon. As such, the patellar ligament can be thought of as connecting the quadriceps femoris tendon to the tibia, and therefore it is sometimes called the patellar tendon.

Palmar pressure distribution during push-up exercise. (1/470)

INTRODUCTION: Doing repetitive push-ups is among the most common exercise for the upper body and shoulder stabiliser muscle strength training. However, adverse effects such as neck pain, back pain, palmar pain and wrist pain have been reported. To date, to our knowledge, palmar pressure when performing push-ups has not been previously reported. We hypothesised that various hand positions during push-ups may provide different palmar pressures. METHODS: Bilateral palmar pressures were recorded in ten individual volunteers. All the subjects were set up for doing push-ups in five positions of the hand. Peak palmar pressure was recorded by Emed pressure platform system (Novel GmBH, Munich, Germany). The palm was divided into the following five anatomic regions, viz. thenar, lunate, hypothenar, metacarpals and fingers. Statistical comparison between the five positions of the hand was analysed using the analysis of variance test. RESULTS: A distribution of the mean peak pressure of the lunate and hypothenar areas were relatively higher than the other areas in both standby and full-elbow flexion positions. At the palmar position 30 cm wider than the shoulder width, the palmar pressure revealed significantly higher peak pressure in the lunate area in the standby and fully-flexed elbow positions (p-value is less than 0.05). At the palmar position 10 cm narrower than the shoulder width, palmar pressure showed significantly higher peak pressure in the hypothenar area only in the fully-flexed elbow position. CONCLUSION: The information regarding palmar pressures while performing push-ups in different hand positions may be used as a guideline for exercise modification, especially in injured athletes.  (+info)

Nutrient intake and blood iron status of male collegiate soccer players. (7/470)

The purpose of this study was: 1) to collect baseline data on nutrient intake in order to advise athletes about nutrition practices that might enhance performance, and 2) to evaluate the dietary iron intake and blood iron status of Japanese collegiate soccer players. The subjects were 31 soccer players and 15 controls. Dietary information was obtained with a food frequency questionnaire. The mean carbohydrate (6.9 g.kg-1 BW) and protein (1.3 g/kg) intakes of the soccer players were marginal in comparisons with recommended targets. The mean intakes of calcium, magnesium, vitamin A, B1, B2, and C were lower than the respective Japanese recommended dietary allowances (RDAs) or adequate dietary intakes in the soccer players. The mean intakes of green and other vegetables, milk and dairy products, fruits, and eggs were lower than the recommended targets. Thus, we recommended athletes to increase the intake of these foodstuffs along with slight increase in carbohydrate and lean meat. The mean intake of iron was higher than the respective RDA in the soccer players. A high prevalence of hemolysis (71%) in the soccer players was found. None of the soccer players and controls had anemia. Two soccer players had iron depletion, while none was found in the controls. In those players who had iron deficiency, the training load need to be lowered and/or iron intake may be increased.  (+info)

Objective.-To compare altitude responses of 2 ultraendurance athletes and 2 nonathletes during a 2-week expedition on Denali (Mount McKinley).. Methods.-The severity of acute mountain sickness (AMS) symptoms (Lake Louise AMS guidelines) and pulmonary function parameters (forced vital capacity, forced expiratory volume in 1 second, peak expiratory flow) as well as resting heart rate and arterial oxygen saturation measurements were taken during the climb. Baseline measurements were made at 375 m, and field tests were performed at altitudes of 2200 m, 2400 m, 3000 m, 3400 m, 4100 m, 4300 m, and 10 m.. Results.-Nonathletes reported moderate AMS symptoms at altitudes up to and including 3000 m, whereas ultraendurance athletes reported moderate AMS symptoms at altitudes above 3000 m. Considerable daily variation existed in pulmonary function measures within and between groups; however, the largest shift from baseline and between groups occurred at 3000 m where ultraendurance athletes had increased and ...
Downloadable! This paper investigates how students collegiate athletic participation affects their subsequent labor market success. It uses newly developed distributional tests to establish that the wage distribution of former college athletes is significantly different from non-athletes and that athletic participation is a significant determinant of wages. Additionally, by using newly developed techniques in nonparametric regression, it shows that on average former college athletes earn a wage premium. However, the premium is not uniform, but skewed so that more than half the athletes actually earn less than non-athletes. Further, the premium is not uniform across occupations. Athletes earn more in the fields of business, military, and manual labor, but surprisingly, athletes are more likely to become high school teachers, which pays a relatively lower wage to athletes. We conclude that nonpecuniary factors play an important role in occupational choice, at least for many former collegiate athletes.
Media release: A new study suggests that head impacts experienced during contact sports such as football and hockey may worsen some college athletes ability to acquire new information. The research is published in the May 16, 2012, online issue of Neurology®, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology. The study involved college athletes at three Division I schools and compared 214 athletes in contact sports to 45 athletes in non-contact sports such as track, crew and Nordic skiing at the beginning and at the end of their seasons. The contact sport athletes wore special helmets that recorded the acceleration speed and other data at the time of any head impact. The contact sport athletes experienced an average of 469 head impacts during the season. Athletes were not included in the study if they were diagnosed with a concussion during the season. In the study, all of the athletes took tests of thinking and memory skills before and after the season. A total of 45 contact sport ...
Controversy exists as to whether high school, college, and older athletes should undergo mandatory preparticipation ECG to screen for underlying cardiac disease that could predispose to SCD. In general, a higher risk of SCD in an athlete population suggests a greater likelihood that ECG screening would be effective. Previous studies have yielded variable rates of SCD among athletes, with the highest event rates (3.6 per 100,000 athlete-years) reported from the Padua region of Italy prior to a program that instituted mandatory ECG screening. The present results suggest that, among high school athletes in the United States, a uniform preparticipation evaluation that includes history and physical examination, but not ECG, results in a very low rate of SCD, and does not support the use of mandatory ECG screening in this group.. ...
Existing literature focusing on collegiate student-athletes fails to connect early educational experiences and college experiences with sport retirement and later life outcomes. The existing body of work dealing with these issues covers academic success of student-athletes, difficulties with retirement from sport or making the transition from sports participation for athletes in general, and the college to work transition for students separately. College student-athletes are a unique and growing population so expanding the literature about the experiences and outcomes of this population is warranted. The purpose of this work was to better understand how participant characteristics impact the retirement from sport process as well as life outcomes. The sample consisted of N=6,636 former NCAA Division-I student athletes with data from high school, first year of college, and 10 years after their freshman year of college. Demographics and academic abilities were obtained from in high school and ...
There were no ethnic differences between RV parameters in control subjects. Both black athletes and white athletes exhibited greater RV dimensions than control subjects. RV dimensions were marginally smaller in black athletes than in white athletes (proximal outflow tract diameter 30.9 ± 5.5 vs. 32.8 ± 5.3 mm, p < 0.001; longitudinal dimension 86.6 ± 9.5 vs. 89.8 ± 9.6 mm, p < 0.001), although only 2.3% of variation was attributable to ethnicity. RV enlargement compatible with diagnostic criteria for arrhythmogenic RV cardiomyopathy was frequently observed (proximal outflow tract ≥32 mm; 45.0% of black athletes, 58.5% of white athletes). Anterior T-wave inversion was present in 14.3% of black athletes versus 3.7% of white athletes (p < 0.001). Marked RV enlargement with concomitant anterior T-wave inversion was observed in 3.0% of black athletes versus 0.3% of white athletes (p = 0.005). Further investigation did not diagnose arrhythmogenic RV cardiomyopathy in any athlete.. ...
Corrado et al. have published an ESC consensus document on the screening of athletes for competitive sports.[1] Besides a good medical history and examination, a 12 lead ECG is also part of the screening. They have set up special ECG criteria for participants in competitive sports (table 1). If one of the described findings are present on the ECG, the ECG is considered positive and further evaluation is mandatory which can include echocardiography, 24-h ambulatory Holter monitoring, and exercise testing. ECG Features of cardiac diseases detectable at pre-participation screening in young competitive athletes are shown in table 2. Prevalence of ECG abnormalities in competitive athletes has been studied by Pellicia et al.[2](see table below). ECG abnormalities in their study increased with age and level of exercise. In young amateur athletes they found ECG abnormalities in about 7%, a number that rose to 40% in "adult elite athletes". Especially RBBB and left ventricular hypertrophy were often ...

The editorial by Maron (1), as well as the articles by Baggish and colleagues (2) and Wheeler and colleagues (3), have interesting implications regarding the scientific debate about preparticipation cardiovascular screening for athletes. Baggish and colleagues (2) compared a screening protocol with or without 12-lead ECG in a cohort of U.S. collegiate athletes and showed that inclusion of the ECG improved sensitivity for detecting important cardiac abnormalities from 45.5% to 90.9% and altered the negative predictive value of screening from 98.7% to 99.8%. Wheeler and colleagues (3) assessed the costs and survival rates in U.S. athletes who were screened with or without 12-lead ECG and estimated that ECG resulted in 2.1 life-years saved per 1000 athletes screened. The incremental cost-effectiveness ratio of the screening with ECG was $42 000 per life-year saved ...

Morphological cardiac alterations in athletes, commonly known as athletes heart, have been widely described in several cross-sectional echocardiographic studies1-6⇓⇓⇓⇓⇓ that have supported the view that LV remodeling in athletes is a benign phenomenon, representing a physiological adaptation to systematic exercise conditioning. However, the dimensional LV changes observed in some elite athletes may be substantial in absolute terms and unavoidably raise a clinical dilemma and differential diagnosis between athletes heart and structural cardiac diseases, such as HCM or DCM.5,6⇓ These are important medical considerations in that the latter pathologic conditions are frequently responsible for sudden death in young athletes.8,9⇓ Presently, however, there are insufficient data to resolve the uncertainty of whether or not such marked alterations in LV chamber dimensions have potential long-term clinical significance and represent evidence of an incipient pathologic condition.10. In the ...
The aim of the study was to examine the lower extremity biomechanics of the stance phase of sprint and endurance athletes, performing maximum velocity sprint runs. The overall purpose of the study was to assist the development of coaching techniques used in the training of endurance and sprint athletes. Twelve specifically trained participants (six sprint & six endurance athletes) were recruited for the study. The participants were asked to run at maximum velocity over a 50m distance for three successful trials. A motion analysis system was used to track all kinematic data from anatomical landmarks identified on the body (MTP, heel, ankle, knee, hip and shoulder joint centres) to form an animated segmental linked system-stick image tracking each trial. A force plate was synchronised with the motion analysis system to obtain kinetic data from a single ground contact. Sprint athletes achieved an 18% increase in horizontal velocity compared to endurance athletes. Differences in stride (lengths, ...

1/4/2017. Athletes in individual sports are more prone to developing depressive symptoms than athletes in team sports, according to a new study.. Our research suggests that depression is particularly high in young athletes, with athletes in individual sports being more vulnerable," says Professor Juergen Beckmann from the Technical University of Munich, who surveyed 162 elite and 199 junior elite athletes in two cross-sectional studies.. Beckmann and his team also conducted a longitudinal study of 85 junior athletes, surveying them three times over the course of a year.. These three studies were complemented by a qualitative study, in which 134 elite athletes were interviewed about perceived causes of their experienced stress, drop-out intentions and depressive symptoms.. The two cross-sectional studies found that sport-specific stress combined with insufficient time for recovery was associated with symptoms of depression. They also found that athletes in individual sports showed significantly ...
To track the long-term outcomes of previous college athletes, the NCAA collaborated with Gallup Inc. to survey those who graduated from 1970-2014. The goal of the study, which included interviews with more than 1,600 former student-athletes ages 22-71, was to evaluate their well-being compared with responding graduates who were not college athletes. The findings showed former college athletes were more likely than non-former college athletes to be thriving in four of the five well-being elements: purpose, social, community and physical. The Gallup study, "Understanding Life Outcomes of Former NCAA Student-Athletes," found the majority of former student-athletes (56 percent) are thriving in the purpose element. Among those who played football or mens basketball, an even higher percentage (62 percent) like what they do each day and are motivated to achieve their goals.. ...
Recent studies investigating ultraendurance athletes showed an association between excessive fluid intake and swelling of the lower limbs such as the feet. To date, this association has been investigated in single-stage ultraendurance races, but not in multistage ultraendurance races. In this case study, we investigated a potential association between fluid intake and feet swelling in a multistage ultraendurance race such as a Deca Iron ultratriathlon with ten Ironman triathlons within 10 consecutive days. A 49-year-old well-experienced ultratriathlete competed in autumn 2013 in the Deca Iron ultratriathlon held in Lonata del Garda, Italy, and finished the race as winner within 129:33 hours:minutes. Changes in body mass (including body fat and lean body mass), foot volume, total body water, and laboratory measurements were assessed. Food and fluid intake during rest and competing were recorded, and energy and fluid turnovers were estimated. During the ten stages, the volume of the feet ...
A new study finds AGT CC genotype is more common in elite power athletes, but not in endurance sports, reports Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research. A specific gene variant is more frequent among elite athletes in power sports, reports a study in the October issue of The Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, official research journal of the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA). The journal is published by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, a part of Wolters Kluwer Health.. A "functional polymorphism" of the angiotensiogen (AGT) gene is two to three times more common in elite power athletes, compared to nonathletes or even elite endurance athletes, according to the new research by Paweł Cięszczyk, PhD, of University of Szczecin, Poland, and colleagues. They write, "[T]he M23T variant in the AGT may be one of the genetic markers to investigate when an assessment of predisposition to power sports is made.". Gene Variant More Common in Elite Power ...
IMU Step records movement data through two synchronized sensors placed above the ankle bone. The data is then interpreted through algorithms and software that precisely quantify the impact of each step an athlete takes. Unlike most single-sensor wearables that treat the body as a single unit of mass and only focus on distance, speed and heart rate, IMU Step precisely measures and classifies how hard each limb hits the ground to calculate asymmetries and workout intensity in order to offer an accumulative "bone load" score for each athletes training session. For running-based sports like basketball, where over 40-percent of injuries are sustained on the foot and ankle, these metrics can help coaches and trainers remove the guesswork from a players journey back from a lower limb injury, and dramatically reduce the risk of re-injury.. The analysis of an athletes lower limbs and bone loading impact generated through IMU Step offers a first of its kind look at each athletes body and the impact of ...
Background: Sudden cardiac arrest in a young healthy athlete is a rare but catastrophic event. Current American Heart Association preparticipation screening (AHA PPS) guidelines recommend a focused history and physical without routine imaging or ECG screening. We propose that a focused echocardiogram is a useful modality to identify structural abnormalities that may lead to sudden cardiac arrest or other cardiovascular events in athletes.. Methods: We performed a focused 5 minute echocardiogram on all incoming varsity Division I collegiate athletes at the University of Wisconsin from 2005 to 2013. The echocardiograms were performed on the same day as their routine AHA-based PPS exam. Abnormal findings on a focused echocardiogram prompted further testing for confirmation. In this investigation, we report the prevalence of abnormal findings in these athletes.. Results: Of the 2898 athletes screened, 1484 (51.2%) were female. The average age was 18.8 years. The majority (98.3%) of athletes had ...

Great athletes are an inspiration, and its part of the human experience to idolize them. Average Joes outnumber the professional athletes million(s) to one. Considering this fact, its only natural that we would look up to someone who can do things that we could never do.. I was a 3-season athlete in high school, and there were plenty of athletes whom I looked up to. However, there was always one who inspired me more than the rest. Until recently, that athlete was Lance Armstrong.. Ever since my junior year of high school, when my father won his battle against prostate cancer and I started getting serious about high school sports, Ive held Lance in the highest regard for his strength and ability to overcome any obstacle. But since he was stripped of his seven consecutive Tour De France championship titles, my feelings toward Armstrong and other athletes accused or found guilty of doping have become mixed.. The accusations against Armstrong seem to hold more weight than accusations against ...
9/26/2014. There are many reasons kids play sports-for fun, for the opportunity to be part of a team, to learn how to play a sport, to be physically active, and for some, to help lose or manage weight. On average in the United States, one in three children and teens are overweight. Among young athletes, studies have shown that 26 percent of males and 27 percent of females are overweight.. While being active is always a part of the plan for kids who carry too much weight, there is no guarantee that playing a sport will spur along weight loss.. Several issues exist to complicate and deter weight loss in the sports setting:. The Food Scene: Studies have shown that young athletes eat more, and healthier, than their non-athlete peers. However, if an athlete is not participating in a high energy burning sport, like swimming or soccer, this eating more may cause weight gain. Excess calories eaten by young athletes primarily come from two sources: sweetened beverages like soda, sports drinks and juice ...

Mental disorders account for approximately 30% of the non-fatal disease burden in Australia, with the most prevalent disorders of depression, anxiety and substance use disorders experienced by 18% of the population in any single year. These disorders are significantly more common in young adulthood than at any other stage in the lifespan. Despite the availability of effective treatments for many disorders, this high susceptibility in young people is coupled with low rates of seeking professional help. As elite athletes have been found to have less positive attitudes towards seeking help for mental health issues, and they are most often young adults themselves, they may be even less likely than non-athletes to utilise professional services. Although there is a strong relationship between exercise and positive mental health, the prevalence of mental disorders in elite athletes is currently not known. A literature review of the general literature on help seeking and a series of focus groups with ...
A study conducted by the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health and funded by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) Foundation revealed that high school athletes who specialize in a single sport sustain lower-extremity injuries at significantly higher rates than athletes who do not specialize in one sport. The study was conducted throughout the 2015-16 school year at 29 high schools in Wisconsin involving more than 1,500 student-athletes equally divided between male and female participants. The schools involved in the study represented a mixture of rural (14), suburban (12) and urban (3) areas, and enrollments were equally diverse with 10 small schools (less than 500 students), 10 medium schools (501-1,000 students) and nine large schools (more than 1,000 students).. Athletes who specialized in one sport were twice as likely to report previously sustaining a lower-extremity injury while participating in sports (46%) than athletes who did not ...
The purpose of the current study was to explore National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division 1 athletes perceptions of mental toughness. Specifically, three areas of mental toughness were explored including attributes, the role of significant others, and strategies used to build mental toughness. In-depth interviews were conducted with 15 athletes from a variety of sports. Lower and higher-order themes were developed to capture the main ideas of mental toughness. Various psychological attributes emerged including performing under pressure, being motivated, being a hard worker, and anticipation. In addition, all athletes referred to coaches as being critical in developing mental toughness (i.e., coaches support, coaches attributes, coaches practices). Creating a positive but tough practice environment emerged as a dominant theme to build mental toughness. In addition, the themes of teaching mental toughness and enhancing athletes psychological skills emerged. Findings offer ...

ABSTRACT. The aim of this study was to examine the perceptions of dry needling within NCAA Division I athletes for muscle performance and/or recovery.Seventy-seven NCAA Division I Athletes completed an 15-item online survey sent via e-mail, which included demographics, exposure to dry needling, and perceptions of effectiveness. Those that had no experience of dry needling were asked to rate their perceptions and reasoning for non-exposure. The results indicated that 66% (n=51) of participants did not have experience with dry needling, while 34% (n=26) did have experience with dry needling. Athletes that experienced dry needling reported that dry needling was effective and comfortable for efficient and speedy recovery. They also reported that they would recommend others to use this recovery treatment. Those athletes with non-exposure to dry needling reported that they would rather use other treatments, concerned with pain or bruising from dry needling or was not sure it would work for recovery. ...
Objective: Scientific knowledge about symptoms of common mental disorders in elite sports is scarce. Consequently, the objectives of the study were to (i) establish the 12-month incidence of symptoms of common mental disorders (CMD; distress, anxiety/depression, sleep disturbance, adverse alcohol use, eating disorders) among Dutch elite athletes and (ii) explore their potential association with several stressors (being injured, recent life events, career dissatisfaction).Methods: A prospective cohort study with a 12-month follow-up period was conducted. The study used validated questionnaires to assess symptoms of common mental disorders (thus not clinically diagnosed) as well as several stressors; an electronic questionnaire was set up and repeatedly distributed.Results: A total of 203 elite athletes gave their written informed consent to participate in the study, from which 143 completed the 12-month follow-up period (follow-up rate of 70%). Incidence of symptoms of CMD ranged from 6% for ...

Out of the preliminary findings, two positive tests resulted from more than 10,000 tests conducted by the National Center for Drug Free Sports and the UCLA Olympic Analytical Laboratory. But the laws primary purpose is to prevent our children from turning to steroids by providing a deterrent - the risk of getting caught gives our kids a solid reason to say no.. Consider speed traps on highways. Many adults and teens drive the speed limit not because they know that doing such is safer and saves fuel, but because they know someone is watching - the fear of getting caught is greater than the desire to disobey the law. What happens when you take away the speed traps? People start breaking the law.. Whether the program yielded two positives, 400 positives or 1,000 positives, no one should be drawing conclusions about the extent of steroid use based on these preliminary lab results. The program was never designed to measure steroid use among high school athletes.. According to the statistics from the ...
WEDNESDAY, Nov. 15, 2017 (HealthDay News) -- Young athletes have a very low risk of suffering a fatal cardiac arrest -- and most of those tragic cases probably cannot be predicted, new research suggests.. The study confirms that cardiac arrest is a rare thing among athletes younger than 45. It put the rate at about 0.76 cases per 100,000 competitive athletes each year -- at least in Ontario, Canada.. But more important, researchers found that more than 80 percent of cases probably wont be caught through "pre-participation screening." Such screening is based on the premise that doctors can spot young people with underlying heart abnormalities, keep them out of sports, and thereby save lives.. In Europe, screening includes electrocardiograms (ECGs) to detect electrical abnormalities in the heart, said Dr. Paul Dorian, the senior researcher on the new study. But the value of doing so has been debated for years, said Dorian, a cardiologist at St. Michaels Hospital in Toronto.. For one thing, ECGs ...
Gene doping has the potential to take many difficult-to-detect forms, but officials are focusing on the detection of a single synthetic gene to start. This initial gene doping test will detect whether athletes have received gene therapy with the DNA that encodes erythropoietin (EPO). EPO is a hormone that stimulates red blood cell production, and has the potential to increase blood oxygenation and athletic performance.. According to Carl Johan Sundberg, an exercise physiologist at Karolinska Institute and member of the WADAs gene doping panel, there is currently no evidence that any athletes are participating in gene doping. Based on the increase in the number of athletes found doping as testing methods have improved however, its possible that the arrival of a gene doping test could uncover a whole new way athletes are cheating.. In 2003, WADA added gene doping to its list of banned substances and procedures. In 2006, former German Athletics Association coach Thomas Springstein went on trial ...
Today a large population-based observational study from Italy regarding the potential benefits of screening athletes for their risk of cardiovascular death was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. This study compiled the incidence of cardiovascular death in athletic and non-athletic individuals between 12 and 35 years of age between 1979 and 2004 in the Veneto region of Italy. After 1982 all participants in competitive sports were required by Italian law to undergo screening for cardiovascular diseases at risk of sudden death during sports. Their evaluation included a family and personal history, physical examination and electrocardiogram (ECG). The findings of the large study demonstrated that there were 55 deaths in the screened athletes compared to 265 deaths in unscreened non-athletes, and the incidence of death decreased from 1 in 27,777 athletes to 1 death in 250,000 athletes over the period studied, an 89% reduction. The presence of an ECG in the screening ...
This formula is very simple. Stride length is the distance an athlete covers with each step. Usually the least amount of strides win the race (a.k.a Usain Bolt). Stride frequency is the amount of strides taken over a given distance or period of time. This is all very simple however, many coaches and parents screw this up royally by trying to verbally cue an athlete to take longer strides and/or quicker steps and this simply results in the athlete taking away from one aspect to give to the other! We dont want to improve stride length by just over striding and reducing frequency. We want to improve stride length by improving traits like mobility and force production.. For example, many taller young athletes have a hard time accelerating over a short distance because moving longer limbs requires more specific strength and coordination than they currently possess. In this situation many coaches will tell the athlete to take shorter choppy steps. All this will do is the screw up his footwork and ...
OVERVIEW. The Athletes Training and Learning to Avoid Steroids Program (ATLAS) is a school-based program designed to lower the use of anabolic steroids among high school athletes. The program combined classroom and weight-training sessions, to teach students about strength training, nutrition, and risk factors for steroid use. Experimental evaluations of the ATLAS program found that the intervention did reduce the use of steroids (though this finding did not hold at the 1 year follow-up) and other illicit drugs, and improved nutrition and exercise behavior and drug refusal skills.. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM. Target population: Male school-aged athletic team participants. ATLAS is a 7-week school-based program designed to lower the use of steroids among high school athletes. It is designed specifically for male students and is integrated into team practice sessions. The program consists of 7 classroom sessions (45 minutes each), 7 weight-training sessions, and 1 parent evening session, which take ...
Background: Sudden death in young athletes most commonly occurs secondary to previously undiagnosed heart disease, including hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and arrhyth-mogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy. Preparticipation screenings may be helpful in detecting disease and preventing deaths. In Italy, the preparticipation sports examination includes 12-lead electrocardiography (ECG). This study compared mortality rates from sudden cardiovascular death in screened athletes and an unscreened, nonathlete population.. The Study: The competitive athletes were 12 to 35 years of age, with similarly aged unscreened nonathletes serving as the control group. The study focused on annual incidences of sudden cardiovascular death between 1979 and 2004, and any changes that occurred after the mandatory preparticipation screening program was introduced in 1982. The authors considered three screening periods: prescreening (1979 to 1981), early screening (1982 to 1992), and late screening (1993 to 2004). Sudden ...

Probiotics provide a variety of benefits, especially for digestive health, for everyone who takes these supplements. A new study shows that probiotic supplementation can help boost the immune system in athletes and reduce their risk of upper respiratory tract infections. Weve written about some of these benefits in a past blog, and research continues to support this idea. Scientists have known for years that athletes are at great risk of infection while training for competition. Training schedules, lack of sleep, exhaustive exercise, stress, and travel associated with competition can increase an athletes risk of getting sick. Athletes are eager to…. [Read More…]. ...

Physically and mentally healthy student-athletes are in a good position to thrive academically, socially, and athletically. Unfortunately, many student-athletes fail to get the mental health help they need due to factors such as lack of knowledge and mental health stigma. The purpose of this research was to create and evaluate a multimedia, interactive website (www.SupportForSport.org) to enable student-athletes to gain the necessary knowledge and confidence to make effective mental health referrals. Study 1 was conducted to determine if the website functioned as intended. In Study 2, 27 intercollegiate athletic directors and coaches evaluated the website. Their favorable evaluations led to Study 3, a controlled field trial with a national sample of 153 student-athletes. Results indicated that viewing the www.SupportForSport.org site resulted in enhanced mental health referral knowledge and efficacy relative to a control group. These results suggest that tailored online programming can affect ...
Long after the glory of performing on the world stage has faded - after athletes have peaked, after theyve committed themselves to careers and lives beyond their sport - much remains of the Olympic spirit. Olympians are known for their drive and their focus, for their innate talent and hard-won skill, for their courage and competitiveness. [...] those traits dont disappear when an athlete retires. A scientific lookScientific research into the post-athletic lives of Olympians, or any kind of elite athlete, is limited, and the results of those few studies are mixed. A handful of studies have shown that elite athletes have stronger cardiovascular systems and better bone density than nonathletes, even decades after their sports careers. Several studies have shown that athletes in sports that involve putting a lot of pressure on the lower-body joints have a significant increased risk of arthritis, often at an earlier age than would be expected for nonathletes. Delayed problemsIn addition, many sports

Virtually all student-athletes should be turning to water instead of energy drinks or sports drinks during and after exercise, according to a new study.
Regular training, in particular endurance exercise, induces structural myocardial adaptation, so-called athletes heart. In addition to the 2D standard echo parameters, assessment of myocardial function is currently possible by deformation parameters (strain, rotation and twist). Aim of study is to assess the role of rotation and twist parameters for better characterize the heart performance in trained elite young athletes from different kind of sports. Eventually, verify early on any possible impact due to the regular sport activity not revealed by the standard parameters. 50 young athletes (16 cyclists, 17 soccer players, 17 basket players) regularly trained at least three times a week for at least 9 months a year and 10 young controls (mean age 18.5 ± 0.5 years) were evaluated either by to 2D echocardiography or by a Speckle Tracking (ST) multi-layer approach to calculate Left Ventricle (LV) endocardial and epicardial rotation, twist, circumferential strain (CS) and longitudinal strain (LS). Data
In older endurance athletes, glycogen (carbohydrate) storage per unit of muscle is lower than in similarly trained younger runners while glycogen usage per unit of energy expenditure is higher during endurance exercise. However, following regular endurance training, older individuals are able to increase muscle glycogen storage and restore glycogen stores post-exercise at rates similar to younger athletes.. The recommended carbohydrate intake for athletes (see Table below) is similar to that of the general population and therefore is similar for masters athletes since carbohydrate absorption and utilisation remains intact with aging. Thus, the older athlete should consume at least 55% of daily energy intake as carbohydrate obtained from a variety of food sources and the bulk of the carbohydrate-containing foods consumed should be those rich in complex carbohydrates and with a low glycemic index (see Chapter 16 of The Masters Athlete or http://www.glycemicindex.com ). A high percentage of this ...
Russia - one athlete;. As the new release just features TUEs, which are permitted under WADA guidelines, there is no suggestion that any of the athletes, federations or NADOs involved have broken any rules. However, as with previous releases, the apparent widespread use of TUEs in elite support will raise questions about whether they are a medical necessity, or whether TUEs are being fabricated in order to benefit from perceived marginal performance gains. The speed with elite athletes appear to have been granted TUEs - sometimes in a matter of weeks - has also raised questions amongst other athletes as to why their TUEs have taken years to process.. The Sports Integrity Initiative broke the news about the first leak here. You can read about the second leak here and the third here. As before, The Sports Integrity Initiative takes the view that it is important to use any publicly available evidence about the TUEs concerned in order to put the information released into context, as well as any ...
One question: The few gays Ive met are quite effeminite, and they are shown in society as being like that (so presumably most are). Could it be that they are less interested in sports than heterosexual guys? And women participate in sport less than men do, so wouldnt effeminite men also participate less? (This is assuming that most gays in sport are openly gay, which I think is unlikely.) - JamesCA Are there so few homosexual athletes, or so few OPENLY homosexual athletes? Charles Barkley recently said he played with multiple gay athletes during his career. But there has only been one openly gay NBA player in history and that was John Amaechi. And Barkely never played with Amaechi. So in all likelihood some of Barkelys teammates came out to the team but not to the public, and thus we wouldnt know about it.

Written on January 31, 2008, by Eric Cressey. Even the best athletes are limited by their most significant weaknesses. For some athletes, weaknesses may be mental barriers along the lines of fear of playing in front of large crowds, or getting too fired up before a big contest. Others may find that the chink in their armor rests with some sport-specific technique, such as shooting free throws. While these two realms can best be handled by the athletes head coaches and are therefore largely outside of the control of a strength and conditioning coach, there are several categories of weak links over which a strength and conditioning specialist can have profound impacts. These impacts can favorably influence athletes performance while reducing the risk of injury. With that in mind, what follows is far from an exhaustive list of the weaknesses that strength and conditioning professionals may observe, especially given the wide variety of sports one encounters and the fact that the list does not ...

Tallahassee, FL - While colleges and universities continue to reap enormous profits generated by student athletes, the athletes have had little hope of enjoying the fruits of their labor. But across the country this notion is being challenged by lawmakers.. As a former NCAA Division I athlete, Senator Randolph Bracy (D-Ocoee) continued to move the debate forward this week by introducing an amendment to SB 646, which would require colleges and universities to equally compensate each student athlete 10 percent of the income from ticket sales to all athletic events. And this would be contingent upon the student athletes graduation.. Ultimately, the revenue sharing model was struck down in committee but not without significant debate. It sparked a much needed conversation about the inequality created by the NCAA rules and regulations which prohibit student athletes from receiving any form of monetary compensation.. Since SB 646 would not become effective until July 1, 2021, there is still plenty of ...

SENATOR GOLDEN AND SENATE COLLEAGUES PASS BILL TO REQUIRE RANDOM STEROID TESTING FOR HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETES The New York State Senate today passed legislation, sponsored by Senator Andrew Lanza (R-I, Staten Island), that would require random testing for anabolic steroids in high school athletes in public and private schools.
One reason sport psychologists teach psychological skills is to enhance performance in sport; but the value of psychological skills for young athletes is questionable because of the qualitative and quantitative differences between children and adults in their understanding of abstract concepts such as mental skills. To teach these skills effectively to young athletes, sport psychologists need to appreciate what young athletes implicitly understand about such skills because maturational (e.g., cognitive, social) and environmental (e.g., coaches) factors can influence the progressive development of children and youth. In the present qualitative study, we explored young athletes (aged 10-15 years) understanding of four basic psychological skills: goal setting, mental imagery, self-talk, and relaxation. Young athletes (n= 118: 75 males and 43 females) completed an open-ended questionnaire to report their understanding of these four basic psychological skills. Compared with the older youth athletes, ...
Some athletes can manifest trivial abnormalities of 12 leads ECG without evidence of structural heart disease and are a difficult diagnostic problem because the natural history of these subjects it is still unknown. This article concerns a large series of top level athletes with long term follow up and demonstrates that markedly abnormal ECGs in young and apparently healthy athletes may represent the initial expression of underlying cardiomyopathies that may not be evident until many years later and that may ultimately be associated with adverse outcomes. Athletes with such ECG patterns merit continued clinical surveillance. Athletes with normal ECG during the inclusion did not manifest, during a long term follow up, any problem This article reinforces the usefulness of 12 leads ECG during athletes screening both in subjects with normal and in those with abnormal 12 leads ECG.. Evaluation of athletes ...
New European research has revealed some of the factors putting young elite athletes at a higher risk of injury, including a lack of sleep and lack of self-confidence.

Because we know it takes just as much effort to score a phone number as it does to score a goal.
We read the exhaustive review by Machado and Vaz Silva entitled "Benign and pathological electrocardiographic changes in athletes"1 with great interest.. As stated in the article, the Seattle criteria2 are among the most commonly used tools for assessing the electrocardiogram (ECG) of athletes, in order to detect and differentiate pathological alterations from those related to intense exercise. They have improved the false-positive rate while maintaining diagnostic accuracy in particular populations,3-5 compared to the previous recommendations for the interpretation of the ECG in athletes published by the European Society of Cardiology (ESC), initially in 20056 and updated in 2010.7. However, although the Seattle criteria were the first to address the influence of race, with specific recommendations for individuals of African and Afro-Caribbean origin (who have a higher risk of sudden cardiac death8), the false-positive rate remains high, especially in black athletes.3-5,9,10 This increases the ...

N2 - This study compares the heart sizes and left ventricular masses of soldiers (n = 11) with age- and body size-matched groups of sedentary men (n = 10) and accomplished athletes (n = 11). Echocardiography revealed that active duty soldiers (A) who met minimal fitness standards and pentathletes (P) had greater average left ventricular (LV) end-diastolic volumes (A = 10%, NS; P = 28%, p , 0.05), stroke volumes (A = 29%, NS; P = 44%, p , 0.01), and LV masses (A = 22%, NS; P = 76%, p , 0.01) than sedentary subjects. Athletes had an average LV wall thickness which was 23% (p , 0.05) greater than that of soldiers and 32% (p , 0.01) greater than that of sedentary men. The LV wall thickness to radius ratio (h/r) was similar between soldiers and sedentary men, but in athletes the h/r was greater (p , 0.01) ...

The highly publicised fatalities occurring in sports competitors generate the false idea that sport related SCD occurs frequently, while in fact it is a very rare event. The uncommon occurrence of SCD in competitive sports underlines the limitations implicit in structuring productive and cost effective, broad based preparticipation screening strategies. Trying to identify the extremely rare young athlete who will die suddenly during sports activities among millions of competitors is a clinical challenge with a prohibitive cost.. The only data supporting the increased risk of SCD in athletes come from the Italian studies. Recent epidemiologic observations from other countries indicate that the risk of SCD in the athletic population may not be as high as reported in Italian competitors and that the general non-athlete population may have a similar or even higher risk of SCD compared with athletes.. Maron et al7 reported an annual incidence of SCD among US high school and college athletes from ...
In recent months, as high-profile athletes linked to steroids and growth hormone come under increasing scrutiny from Congress and the media, a fascinating counter-phenomenon has been taking hold at the grassroots level. Amateur athletes are seeking accurate, unbiased information on how these performance enhancers work. Whos taking what and how? What are the advantages and disadvantages? What are the long-range effects? To answer these questions, athletes are turning to a definitive resource born out of one respected doctors lifetime spent in gyms with the bodybuilding elite. That man is Carlon Colker and his breakout book is Extreme Muscle Enhancement ...
Arginine is such an amino acid that athletes have an increased need. It is a precursor for nitric oxide. This means that this substance is required to produce nitric oxide - that is important neurotransmitter. Nitric oxide plays an important role in the relaxation of muscles, the functioning of the liver, the heart and the gastrointestinal tract and the achievement and maintenance of an erection. In addition, arginine has a positive influence on muscle growth, endurance and fat burning: all factors that are important for athletes.. Scientific research has shown, among other things, that if one takes 3 grams of arginine daily, this already significantly improves sports performance. The body is therefore able to absorb more oxygen, burn sugars more slowly and fats more quickly. In doing so, it reduces the concentration of lactic acid in the blood, so that endurance efforts can be sustained for longer ( Burtscher, M. et al, 2005 ). Arginine is therefore an extremely useful supplement for people who ...
Dear Liiiisa,. Youre definitely on the right track! Glycogen stores do get used up during intense exercise, especially during prolonged periods of training. While the nutritional needs of endurance and resistance athletes may differ because they engage in different types of physical activity, an athletes optimal protein and carbohydrate requirements might also need to be adjusted for a variety of other reasons as well, such as improving recovery time or increasing muscle mass. Whats more, not only is the amount of carbohydrates and protein essential to peak performance, how meals and snacks are spaced throughout the day can also affect how the body responds to these nutrients (more on this later). Some additional considerations may also include an athletes age, fitness level, type and intensity of training, body size and composition, and performance goals.. First, a quick review of biochemistry: carbohydrates, in the form of glucose, are the primary fuel source for aerobic activity, a.k.a. ...

The Wall Street Journal examines why elite athletes from all sporting backgrounds are turning to vitamin d supplements for improved performance and recovery.
Most scientific journals publish on the first of the month. This is when new research becomes available to the public. Todays post is about a new study published in the journal Neurolimage. Researchers at the University of Texas Southwest Medical Center report on brain structural differences between masters athletes and sedentary older adults. This is not the same thing as functional differences. However, structural changes in the brain during adulthood are just about never good news. Unfortunately the brain changes as we age . . . and generally not for the better. The masters athletes in the study were aerobically trained (runners not weightlifters) and ranged in age from 61 to 80. Brains of masters athletes showed high white matter microstructural integrity than did the brains of sedentary people. The brain contains white matter and grey matter. Both are important. However, white matter contains heavily myelinated neurons that transmit information to other neurons. Healthy white matter is ...
This resurgence will remain stunted, however, if steps are not also taken to deal with the second and more easily addressed problem-that of too early specialization and year-round training and racing among age-class athletes, which continues to be a problem across North American. Two years ago, Athletics Canada released an exhaustive study detailing the optimal development path for young track and field athletes-its Long Term Athlete Development Guidelines. Yet, this very important and potentially useful document has not been backed by any effective enforcement measures at the national and provincial levels-measures that might include, for instance, limiting by age the number of competitions young athletes may enter in a season or year. Many road races have wisely taken it upon themselves to restrict entry to athletes under a certain age; yet, age-group track and field and cross-country in Canada remain entirely laissez-faire, with the exception of limits on the distances younger athletes may ...
There are other programs out there that do something similar where you combine an EKG with a sports physical," said Jason Miyamoto, manager of the athletics trainers with the UCSF Orthopaedic Institute.

while also training specific joint ranges of motion required in the sport being trained for. The reasoning, as well as the specific implementation strategies, including both the execution and timing, OC will be covered to a great extent within this piece.. OC training methods involve a rapid "push-pull" motion in an attempt to maximize the ability of an athlete to reverse the muscle action phase at a high-velocity. In Russia there was originally a 5 level organizational system based on the ability of an athlete. Level 1 was a beginner while level 5 represented the elite athlete, the athlete that is viewed as the best in their respective sport. It is shown in Russian literature that the separation between a level 4, or advanced athlete, and a level 5, or truly elite athlete is not the ability to contract their muscles at a high rate (although this is a requirement of both levels), but rather the ability relax their antagonist muscles at a high-velocity. Consider level 4 to represent an average ...

Athletes frequently reflect the personality of the coach. Athletes under the tutelage of that "Puppet Master Coach" feel they have to live up to the coachs expectations. Every coach will have expectations and occasionally, to get the best out of an athlete a coach might come down pretty hard. Every athlete is different and no good coach ever treats his/her athletes the same, except in the category of "fairness". When the athletes start playing for one another, the chances of the team becoming greater than the sum of its parts is greatly enhanced. That doesnt mean that sometimes, due to the very special relationship a team might have with the coach, the team wants to "win for their coach". After all, the coach IS part of the team but that role is in preparation, not in the athletic contest itself in terms of inspiration. The game is not the place to feel you must inspire ones athletes. Its too late for that! Athletes need to arrive at the venue inspired and therefore motivated to achieve a ...
Some physically active females, particularly adolescents, may develop an energy deficit when the energy (calories) they expend exceeds their energy (calorie) intake.2 This deficit may be unintentional, resulting from inadequate replenishment of the caloric (energy) demands of training, or may be intentional-a conscious attempt to lose weight or body fat in the interest of improved appearance or athletic performance. These athletes often restrict food intake but may develop other disordered eating behaviors, such as binge eating and/or purging by vomiting or use of laxatives, diuretics, and diet pills. Compulsive exercise, defined as excessive exercise in addition to a normal training regimen, is another form of "purging," or energy expenditure often overlooked in athletes. The spectrum of disordered eating behaviors ranges from mild-slight restriction of food intake or occasional binge eating and purging-to severe-significant restriction of food intake, as in anorexia nervosa, or regular binge ...

Background: Pressure among young athletes to meet body composition goals may lead to poor nutrition and affect growth. Aims: To examine the proportion of body fat (%BF), measured by bioimpedance analysis, among Latvian children and adolescents participating in organized sports. Methods: Our study had a nationally representative sample of 6048 young athletes, aged 10-17 years. Their %BF was measured using a multifrequency, 8-pole, bioelectrical impedance leg-to-hand analyzer. Results: About 19.2% (CI 14.4-20.0) of boys and 15.1% (CI 14.0-16.3) of girls had a %BF value below the recommended levels. The %BF in young female athletes participating in aesthetic sports was lower than among their peers participating in other sports. Young male athletes participating in aesthetic sports had lower %BF levels at 10 and 12 years of age, compared with participants in weight-class sports; and lower levels of %BF from age 10-14 years, compared with participants in non-weight-sensitive sports. Conclusions: ...
When I meet new people and tell them what I do for a living, one of the first questions I tend to get asked is what its like to have college athletes in class. This is apparently the higher education equivalent of asking a cop, Have you ever shot anybody? and I enjoy answering it approximately as much. Are the athletes dumb? Do they come to class? Ever have any Famous ones? Heres my experience. In general, student-athletes (the NCAA has cloyingly rebranded them scholar-athletes) get a really bad rap. Most people dont understand how many hours per day their sport takes up. You dont have to feel sorry for them - in many cases theyre getting a free education out of the deal - but their non-athlete peers are not getting up at 5 AM to work out for 3 hours before going to class and then practicing for 5 more after class. Compared to the average college kid who rolls out of bed at 11 AM with great difficulty, thats a heroic display of discipline.. And athletes come to class. They come to ...
Results:. Cardiac abnormalities with relevance to sports participation risk were observed on TTE in 11 of 510 participants (prevalence, 2.2%). Screening with history and examination alone detected abnormalities in 5 of these 11 athletes (sensitivity, 45.5% [95% CI, 16.8% to 76.2%]; specificity, 94.4% [CI, 92.0% to 96.2%]). Electrocardiography detected 5 additional participants with cardiac abnormalities (for a total of 10 of 11 participants), thereby improving the overall sensitivity of screening to 90.9% (CI, 58.7% to 99.8%). However, including ECG reduced the specificity of screening to 82.7% (CI, 79.1% to 86.0%) and was associated with a false-positive rate of 16.9% (vs. 5.5% for screening with history and examination only). ...

It has been proposed that high exercise loads increase the risk of infection, most frequently reported as upper respiratory tract infections, by suppressing the immune system. Most athletes will not train when experiencing sickness due to the fear of health complications. However, high training volumes are incompatible with high rates of non-training days, regardless of the cause. The purpose of this observational study was to examine the relationship between self-reported, exercise-constraining days of sickness (days when the athlete decided not to train due to symptoms of disease, either self-reported or by a physician) and the volumes of exercise training in elite endurance athletes by analyzing data from training logs kept for several years. The subjects included 11 elite endurance athletes (8 male, 3 female) competing at national and international levels in cross-country skiing, biathlon and long-distance running. Training logs available from these 11 subjects added to a total of 61 ...

Tate AR, McClure PW, Kareha S, Irwin D. The objective of this study was to determine whether manually repositioning the scapula using the Scapula Reposition Test (SRT) reduces pain and increases shoulder elevation strength in athletes with and without positive signs of shoulder impingement. 142 college athletes underwent testing for clinical signs of shoulder impingement. Tests provoking symptoms were repeated with the scapula manually repositioned into greater retraction and posterior tilt. Of the 98 athletes with a positive impingement test, 46 had reduced pain with scapular repositioning. Although repositioning produced an increase in strength in both the impingement and non-impingement groups, a significant increase in strength was found with repositioning in only 26% of athletes with, and 29% of athletes without positive signs for shoulder impingement. The Scapula Reposition Test is a simple clinical test that may potentially be useful in an impairment based classification approach to ...
Young athletes in the U.S. 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 5 to 21. Overall, reported concussions rates are more frequent among high school athletes than college athletes in some sports - including football, mens lacrosse and soccer, and baseball; higher for competition than practice (except for cheerleading); and highest in football, ice hockey, lacrosse, wrestling, soccer, and womens basketball. Concussion rates also appear higher for youths with a history of prior concussions and among female athletes.. Read more:. ...
WEDNESDAY, Dec. 27, 2017 (HealthDay News) -- The link between concussions and brain injury might be a hot topic in the NFL, but at the high school level? Apparently not so much.. Overall, only about a third of high school athletes, their coaches and parents know that a concussion is a brain injury, according to a new study by Mayo Clinic researchers. The athletes themselves were the most likely to know that fact, the researchers found.. They surveyed 115 athletes, 132 parents and 15 coaches at three high schools in Rochester, Minn. They were involved with a variety of sports -- football, soccer, volleyball, hockey, basketball, wrestling, dance, gymnastics, lacrosse, baseball and softball. All of the participants completed a questionnaire designed to assess what they knew about concussions.. Most people could identify the possible effects of concussion, the study found. Coaches had the most knowledge about how a concussion occurs, when to take an athlete out of a game and the potential effects of ...
Shoulder impingement syndrome is quite common in serving or throwing athletes, such as tennis players, volleyball players, and baseball pitchers. In fact, shoulder impingement, bursitis, and tendinitis are extremely common among major-league baseball pitchers. One of the most common reasons for a trip to the disabled list for pitchers in that sport is related to problems with shoulder tendons and joints. Take one MLB team for example, the Baltimore Orioles. Pitchers Zach Britton, Mike Wright, Chris Tillman, Wade Miley made trips to the DL for shoulder bursitis and tendinitis (not to mention catcher Wellington Castillo and third baseman Ryan Flaherty.) In fact, Chris Tillman recently underwent platelet rich plasma therapy as part of his shoulder rehab. Spread across the rest of MLB, professional tennis, and other pro sports, the number of athletes affected by shoulder impingement syndrome is remarkable.. Treatment for acute shoulder impingement (i.e., severe symptoms occurring over short period ...
