Risk factors for injuries and other health problems sustained in a marathon. (1/1485)

OBJECTIVES: To identify risk factors for injuries and other health problems occurring during or immediately after participation in a marathon. METHODS: A prospective cohort study was undertaken of participants in the 1993 Auckland Citibank marathon. Demographic data, information on running experience, training and injuries, and information on other lifestyle factors were obtained from participants before the race using an interviewer-administered questionnaire. Information on injuries and other health problems sustained during or immediately after the marathon were obtained by a self administered questionnaire. Logistic regression analyses were undertaken to identify significant risk factors for health problems. RESULTS: This study, one of only a few controlled epidemiological studies that have been undertaken of running injuries, has identified a number of risk factors for injuries and other health problems sustained in a marathon. Men were at increased risk of hamstring and calf problems, whereas women were at increased risk of hip problems. Participation in a marathon for the first time, participation in other sports, illness in the two weeks before the marathon, current use of medication, and drinking alcohol once a month or more, were associated with increased self reported risks of problems. While increased training seemed to increase the risk of front thigh and hamstring problems, it may decrease the risk of knee problems. There are significant but complex relations between age and risk of injury or health problem. CONCLUSIONS: This study has identified certain high risk subjects and risk factors for injuries and other health problems sustained in a marathon. In particular, subjects who have recently been unwell or are taking medication should weigh up carefully the pros and cons of participating.  (+info)

Factors influencing tackle injuries in rugby union football. (2/1485)

OBJECTIVES: To assess the influence of selected aspects of lifestyle, personality, and other player related factors on injuries in the tackle. To describe the detailed circumstances in which these tackles occurred. METHODS: A prospective case-control study was undertaken in which the tackling and tackled players ("the cases") involved in a tackle injury were each matched with "control" players who held the same respective playing positions in the opposing teams. A total of 964 rugby matches involving 71 senior clubs drawn from all districts of the Scottish Rugby Union (SRU) were observed by nominated linkmen who administered self report questionnaires to the players identified as cases and controls. Information on lifestyle habits, match preparation, training, and coaching experience was obtained. A validated battery of psychological tests assessed players' trait anger and responses to anger and hostility. The circumstances of the tackles in which injury occurred were recorded by experienced SRU coaching staff in interviews with involved players after the match. RESULTS: A total of 71 tackle injury episodes with correct matching of cases and controls were studied. The following player related factors did not contribute significantly to tackle injuries: alcohol consumption before the match, feeling "below par" through minor illness, the extent of match preparation, previous coaching, or practising tackling. Injured and non-injured players in the tackle did not differ in their disposition toward, or expression of, anger or hostility. Some 85% of tackling players who were injured were three quarters, and 52% of injuries occurred when the tackle came in behind the tackled player or within his peripheral vision. Either the tackling or tackled player was sprinting or running in all of these injury episodes. One third of injuries occurred in differential speed tackles--that is, when one player was travelling much faster than the other at impact. The player with the lower momentum was injured in 80% of these cases. Forceful or crunching tackles resulting in injury mostly occurred head on or within the tackled player's side vision. CONCLUSIONS: Attention should be focused on high speed tackles going in behind the tackled player's line of vision. Comparative information on the circumstances of the vast majority of tackles in which no injury occurs is required before any changes are considered to reduce injuries in the tackle.  (+info)

Rider injury rates and emergency medical services at equestrian events. (3/1485)

BACKGROUND: Horse riding is a hazardous pastime, with a number of studies documenting high rates of injury and death among horse riders in general. This study focuses on the injury experience of cross country event riders, a high risk subset of horse riders. METHOD: Injury data were collected at a series of 35 equestrian events in South Australia from 1990 to 1998. RESULTS: Injury rates were found to be especially high among event riders, with frequent falls, injuries, and even deaths. The highest injury rates were among the riders competing at the highest levels. CONCLUSION: There is a need for skilled emergency medical services at equestrian events.  (+info)

Penetrating sledding injuries to the lower torso--2 case reports. (4/1485)

Sledding accidents are frequent and vary in severity. Penetrating sledding injuries are uncommon but may be devastating. Snow-racers--sleds with both steering and braking devices--may be associated with an increased rate of injury. The authors present 2 cases of lower-torso penetrating trauma associated with the use of snow-racers. Both cases involved penetration--of the perineum in one case and the inguinal area in the other--by wooden sticks. Both patients recovered fully after prompt surgical intervention. The authors suggest that the absence of a protective panel at the front of the snow-racer may result in the sledder's lower torso being more exposed to objects encountered while sledding. The injuries reported raise concerns about the safety of modern sleds and the possibility that design changes are needed.  (+info)

Modified Bankart procedure for recurrent anterior dislocation and subluxation of the shoulder in athletes. (5/1485)

Thirty-four athletes (34 shoulders) with recurrent anterior glenohumeral instability were treated with a modified Bankart procedure, using a T-shaped capsular incision in the anterior capsule. The inferior flap was advanced medially and/or superiorly and rigidly fixed at the point of the Bankart lesion by a small cancellous screw and a spike-washer. The superior flap was advanced inferiority and sutured over the inferior flap. Twenty-five athletes (median age: 22) were evaluated over a mean period of follow-up of 65 months. The clinical results were graded, according to Rowe, as 22 (88%) excellent, 3 (12%) good, and none as fair or poor. The mean postoperative range of movement was 92 degrees of external rotation in 90 degrees of abduction. Elevation and internal rotation was symmetrical with the opposite side. Twenty-four patients returned to active sport, 22 at their previous level. This modified Bankart procedure is an effective treatment for athletes with recurrent anterior glenohumeral instability.  (+info)

Incidence and causes of tenosynovitis of the wrist extensors in long distance paddle canoeists. (6/1485)

OBJECTIVES: To investigate the incidence and causes of acute tenosynovitis of the forearm of long distance canoeists. METHOD: A systematic sample of canoeists competing in four canoe marathons were interviewed. The interview included questions about the presence and severity of pain in the forearm and average training distances. Features of the paddles and canoes were determined. RESULTS: An average of 23% of the competitors in each race developed this condition. The incidence was significantly higher in the dominant than the nondominant hand but was unrelated to the type of canoe and the angle of the paddle blades. Canoeists who covered more than 100 km a week for eight weeks preceding the race had a significantly lower incidence of tenosynovitis than those who trained less. Environmental conditions during racing, including fast flowing water, high winds, and choppy waters, and the paddling techniques, especially hyperextension of the wrist during the pushing phase of the stroke, were both related to the incidence of tenosynovitis. CONCLUSION: Tenosynovitis is a common injury in long distance canoeists. The study suggests that development of tenosynovitis is not related to the equipment used, but is probably caused by difficult paddling conditions, in particular uneven surface conditions, which may cause an altered paddling style. However, a number of factors can affect canoeing style. Level of fitness and the ability to balance even a less stable canoe, thereby maintaining optimum paddling style without repeated eccentric loading of the forearm tendons to limit hyperextension of the wrist, would seem to be important.  (+info)

Sonographic incidence of tendon microtears in athletes with chronic Achilles tendinosis. (7/1485)

OBJECTIVE: To assess the number and distribution of tendon microtears in asymptomatic controls and athletes with chronic Achilles tendinitis or partial thickness tears using high resolution ultrasound. METHODS: The mean number of microtears in three random tendon cross sections were recorded per tendon third in 19 asymptomatic volunteers, 16 athletes with symptomatic chronic Achilles tendinitis, and eight athletes with partial Achilles tendon rupture. RESULTS: Microtears were most numerous in the middle third section of the Achilles tendon. Some 67% of tendons in the control group had no microtears, and 28% showed a single microtear. Only 18% of the athletes with chronic Achilles tendinitis and none of the athletes with partial tendon rupture were without microtears in the middle third of their Achilles tendon. Of the tendons with chronic tendinitis, 13% had more than three microtears per section which increased to 87% in tendons exhibiting partial rupture. CONCLUSIONS: There appears to be an association between microtear formation and Achilles tendon rupture.  (+info)

Safe relief of rest pain that eases with activity in achillodynia by intrabursal or peritendinous steroid injection: the rupture rate was not increased by these steroid injections. (8/1485)

A history of morning and rest pain that eases with activity was found to improve after anti-inflammatory injections around the paratenon or within the Achilles bursae. The reduction in pain morbidity was significant, and the peritendinous steroid injections did not increase the rupture rate.  (+info)

Injuries are a part of sport - but even more so in masters sport. Almost 200 competitors have been treated for injuries sustained in the first six days of the New Zealand Masters Games in Dunedin. Co-ordinator Graeme Harvey, who has run the sports injury clinic since the event began 26 years ago, said the majority of competitors had suffered lower limb injuries. They arrive here thinking they are 21, but leave here realising they are more like 121, he said. Four of the injured competitors had torn their Achilles tendons, the worst injury so far, Harvey said. The most unfortunate guy was a guy who came down from Wanganui for football. He had 10 minutes on the paddock and somebody fell on him and broke his foot. There has been knees, hamstrings, hips, calves and ankle injuries. There were a few fingers in the netball and were expecting more in the basketball. It takes a team of 32 to service the three sports injury clinics for the games. Nineteen are sports medics, the majority of them ...

The aim of the study was to investigate the effect of sources of confidence on predicting re-injury anxiety intensity and frequency following athletic injury. The 54 participants (26 male, 28 female) had sustained athletic injury within the last five years, requiring a minimum of two weeks recovery/rehabilitation; completed the Modified Sources of Confidence Questionnaire (M-SSCQ; Magyar & Duda, 2000) and Re-injury Anxiety Inventory (RIAI; Walker et al., 2010). A multiple regression analysis was conducted to investigate the relationships between the predictor variables (sources of confidence) and the outcome variables (re-injury anxiety intensity and frequency) in both the rehabilitation and return to competition phases. The results of multiple regression analysis revealed insignificance (p , .05) between all sources of confidence and re-injury anxiety. These findings question the influence of self-confidence on re-injury anxiety however; the findings were somewhat in line with previous ...

The Paralympic Games is today one of the largest sport event in the world. During the last decades parasport has in many ways become elite sport, allowing people with disabilities to achieve extraordinary heights of functional capability. With the growing number of athletes there is an increased interest in athletes health and safety, both to enhance sports performance and to prevent injuries.. Even though it is well-known that participation in sports places the athlete at risk for injuries, there are few studies covering sports-related injuries and illnesses in parasport (SRIIP). Today, some injuries and illnesses are known to be preventable. However, this requires regular monitoring of internal and external load during athletic preparation. Standardized injury surveillances have been implemented within several sports for abled-bodied athletes, but such studies do not yet exist within parasport.. In our review article (Fagher & Lexell 2014) the investigators showed that existing studies of ...

Here are some simple exercises that can help strengthen weak points to prevent ankle, knee, and hamstrings injuries, shin splints, and other athletic injuries.
I was reading today an article in the NY Times concerning athletic injuries in aging athletes ( A thoughtful article, although I am surprised they did not ask the opinion of a non medical style provider. Is being an overachiever athletically a psychological problem? I have been treating older athletes for years. It is always sad when an athlete has numerous injuries that are termed as overuse and then gives up the sport they love because the injuries continue to pile up. I too injured my back playing softball this season and I am likely not to return. Many athletes we treat have chronic problems because they are misunderstood. Stress fractures, knee pain, hip pain, shoulder problems are often looked at as separate entities. The reality is that they are usually part of a gait related issue, causing the person to slam their foot into the ground. It is my experience that most health care providers are trained to look at the pain, ...
WHAT IS MALLET FINGER?. Mallet finger occurs when the outermost joint of the finger is injured. With mallet finger, the tendon on the back of the finger is separated from the muscles it connects.. WHAT ARE THE CAUSES?. Commonly an athletic injury where basketball and baseball players routinely experience jammed fingers, but the injury can occur because of a crushing accident on the job or even because of a cut finger while working in the kitchen.. HOW TO PREVENT MALLET FINGER?. To prevent such injuries, take care when participating in activities, including athletic events. To prevent injuries from happening again to the same finger, leave the splint on for the entire time the doctor has recommended.. WHAT ARE THE TREATMENTS?. If the finger is not broken or cut, or if only a small fracture is present, the doctor applies a splint to the end of the finger so it remains extended. With a splint, the outermost joint on the injured finger is not bendable, but the rest of the finger is bendable. This ...

BACKGROUND: Limited data exist among collegiate student-athletes on the epidemiology of sports-related concussion (SRC) outcomes, such as symptoms, symptom resolution time, and return-to-play time.. PURPOSE: This study used the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Injury Surveillance Program (ISP) to describe the epidemiology of SRC outcomes in 25 collegiate sports.. STUDY DESIGN: Descriptive epidemiology study.. METHODS: SRC data from the NCAA ISP during the 2009-2010 to 2013-2014 academic years were analyzed regarding symptoms, time to resolution of symptoms, and time to return to play. Findings were also stratified by sex in sex-comparable sports (ie, ice hockey, soccer, basketball, lacrosse, baseball/softball) and whether SRCs were reported as recurrent.. RESULTS: Of the 1670 concussions reported during the 2009-2010 to 2013-2014 academic years, an average (±SD) of 5.29 ± 2.94 concussion symptoms were reported, with the most common being headache (92.2%) and dizziness (68.9%). ...

Background Little is known about the short-term and long-term sequelae of concussion, and about when athletes who have sustained such injuries can safely return to play. Purpose To examine whether sports-related concussion increases the risk of subsequent injury in elite male football players. Study design Prospective cohort study. Methods Injuries were registered for 46 male elite football teams in 10 European countries in the 2001/ 2002-2011/ 2102 seasons. Two survival models were used to analyse whether concussion increased the subsequent risk of an injury in the first year. Results During the follow-up period, 66 players sustained concussions and 1599 players sustained other injuries. Compared with the risk following other injuries, concussion was associated with a progressively increased risk of a subsequent injury in the first year (0 to less than3 months, HR=1.56, 95% CI 1.09 to 2.23; 3 to less than6 months, HR=2.78, 95% CI 1.58 to 4.89; 6-12 months, HR=4.07, 95% CI 2.14 to 7.76).

This article aims to examine pediatric concussion literature with respect to epidemiology, etiology, return to play, and recurrent concussions, and to provide recommendations for future research. We conducted a review of pediatric concussion literature regarding incidence, etiology, return to play, and recurrent concussive injury by using MEDLINE, CINAHL, Sport-Discus, and PsychInfo databases from 1995-2010. A review of reference lists in the aforementioned articles was also performed. We discovered that the research on sports-related concussion specific to children and adolescents is rather limited. Results of existing studies of concussion incidence in this population indicate that concussion is relatively rare compared with most musculoskeletal injuries; however, the potential consequences of mismanagement and of subsequent injury warrant significant attention regarding injury recognition and recovery, and the challenge of determining readiness to return to play. Evidence exists that children ...
The incidence of ice hockey injuries will likely continue to increase, given the sports growing popularity, unless we make a concerted effort to make sure kids wear the proper protective equipment, said Jeff Deits, lead author of the study, who did the work as part of his masters degree project at Ohio States School of Physical Activity and Educational Services.. This study is the first long-term assessment of hockey injuries in a broad, national sample, said Deits, who is now an assistant athletic trainer at Wichita State University. It appears in the September-October issue of the Journal of Athletic Training.. The study uses data from the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System, which collects injury reports from a sample of 100 U.S. hospitals. Deits examined all emergency department records from 1990 through 2006 that involved playing ice hockey, including both structured games and those in which people were playing on ponds or open rinks.. Overall, hockey injuries in all age ...

DISCUSSION. Results from our study indicate that public interest in particular injuries increased following high-profile UFC fights. This finding may encourage timely dissemination of evidence-based information about particular injuries since search interest appears to increase shortly after injury occurrence. Here, we first discuss the roles of YouTube and social media in disseminating health information to large audiences in a timely manner. These two platforms are commonly used by the public to become familiar with recently occurring athletic injuries as well as sports medicine personnel when directing patients to online information that they have personally reviewed and approved. We then discuss potential avenues to maximize the accurate dissemination about sports-related injuries following bouts.. YouTube video accuracy When the public seeks out health information on the internet, many options are available, and YouTube may be among the most popular of alternatives. An impressive body of ...
Seeking regular massage therapy is one of the best preventative measures of sports medicine that any athlete can pursue. Massage therapy helps to increase circulation to your soft tissues, enabling them to heal and to calm down faster. Its particularly helpful in treating scar tissue areas, where clumps of scarred tissue can commonly flare up, decreasing circulation and sending fleeting signals to the nervous system, resulting in aches, pains, throbbing pain, muscle spasms and overall discomfort. Regular massage therapy helps the body better heal itself from sports injury-and also enables the muscles, tendons and ligaments to be more responsive to the healing process while aiding in stretching them to prevent future injury.. ...
This pilot study demonstrates that a surveillance system can identify high school sports participation and monitor injury patterns. This can help injury prevention specialists and sports rules and medical committees develop, implement, and evaluate injury prevention programs for high school sports. 1) During the 2005-06 school year the 4.2 million US adolescents participating in the nine high school sports studied (boys football, soccer, basketball, wrestling, and baseball and girls soccer, volleyball, basketball, and softball) sustained an estimated 1.4 million injuries which prevented participation for a day or more. 2)The overall injury rate was 2.4 injuries per 1,000 athlete-exposures (athlete-exposure is defined as one athlete participating in one practice or game) with patterns of injury varying by exposure; the injury rate in every sport was higher in competition than practice. Football had an injury rate almost two times higher than any other sport. 3) In each sport, over 80% of the ...
Researchers examined neuroimaging studies obtained in children and adolescents with sports-related concussions and found that the images appeared normal in 78 percent of cases. Although usually nondiagnostic, occasionally such studies can be useful in guiding decisions about return to play.
I wrote a detailed post back in May about the Airrosti (Applied Integration for the Rapid Recovery of Soft Tissue Injuries) method for treating soft tissue injuries and their use of kinesiology tape. At the time I noted that my Airrosti provider had a supply of three of the four major brands of kinesiology tape. Im now pleased to announce that they have added the highly-respected KT Tape (Kinesiology Therapeutic Tape) to their arsenal - in fact, they recently contracted with KT Tape to produce a private-label tape with the Airrosti logo on it. Since Im currently undergoing Airrosti treatment again (this time for a high hamstring strain), I thought this would be a good time to revisit the topic of fascial manipulation and why kinesiology taping is such a complementary modality.. Airrosti is a form of manual therapy that involves hands-on manipulation of the fascia, the connective tissue that surrounds and connects all body tissues. Fascia can become tightened, twisted or distorted as a result ...
In a new article in the Journal of Neurosurgery: Pediatrics by Kelly Russell, PhD, Erin Selci, BSc, Brian Black, MD, FRCSC, and Michael J. Ellis, MD, FRCSC, the authors define health-related QOL as the hidden morbidity or more subtle consequences of medical conditions or injuries on patient functioning that may not be captured by more traditional clinical outcome measures. These researchers from Winnipeg conducted a prospective study of health-related QOL in young athletes who experienced a sports-related concussion or sports-related extremity fracture. The aim was twofold: 1) compare the effects of these sports-related concussions and extremity fractures on health-related QOL in adolescents during the recovery period and 2) identify what clinical variables are associated with worse QOL in adolescent patients with sports-related concussion.. In general, the study period extended from the date of the initial clinical assessment until physician-verified clinical recovery - a median of 26 days ...
