Intrinsic and Extrinsic Risk Factors for Lateral Ankle Sprain: A Literature Review

Authors: Miguel Angelo de Castro Correia and Joao Torres

Abstract: Ankle sprain can injure the medial ligaments, lateral ligaments, or the syndesmotic tibio-fibular joint. Respectively, these injuries are referred as medial, lateral or high ankle sprains. Lateral ankle sprains are more common, and athlete's are at a significantly higher risk of sustaining one. This review will focus primarily on lateral ankle sprains, which from now on, will be referred only as ankle sprains.

Tibial Spine Avulsion Fractures in Adult: Diagnostic and Therapeutic Actuality

Authors: A Zaizi, A El Bahraouy, N Bensiamar, I Aissa, J Boukhris, B Chafry, D Benchebba, S Bouabid and M Boussouga

Abstract: Tibial spine fractures are rare lesions which usually occur in adolescent but rare in adults it leads to discontinuity of anterior cruciate ligament. It has been the subject of several publications concerning its anatomopathological presentation and its treatment. The Meyers and Mac Keever classification, modified by Zaricznyj, are the most used and allowed to classify the lesions into 4 types.

The Current Landscape of Unused Women's College Golf Scholarships

Authors: Brendan Ryan

Abstract: Scrolling down, readers will notice that many of the articles cite the NCCA 2009 article that claims that over 200 of the approximately 1800 female scholarships available went unused. This stat has become an anthem for sports writers, as well as dubious businesses which hope to use the power of framing to enroll girls and their families into paid scholarship advising services.

Youth Sport Coaching and the Importance of Maintaining Participation: Why Evidence Must Underpin Notions of Performance, Talent, and Development

Authors: Philippe Crisp

Abstract: There are numerous benefits attached to the idea of lifelong physical activity. Because of this, various governmental and sports organisations seek to promote positive behaviours and potential health aspirations through the use of sport. This critical commentary seeks to highlight some of the issues that surround this topic, most notably the lack of suitable training or understanding for many of the practitioners who deliver youth sport (coaches and teachers).

A Radiological Method of Predicting Clinical Outcomes in PCL Reconstruction

Authors: Deborah Miao'en Huang, Mohammed Tauheed and Denny Lie Tijauw Tjoen

Abstract: 37 patients who had undergone PCL reconstruction between 2009 and 2014 were included. A standard follow-up was performed for at least two years and consisted of pre- and post-op Lysholm scores. Lateral knee radiographs were studied and the measurements of the tibial Plateau to tibial Tunnel Length (PTL) and superior tip of Fibula to tibial Tunnel Length (FTL) were collected. A correlation was then derived and illustrated via scatter plots.

Current Evidence on Superior Capsular Reconstruction

Authors: Luisa Pinto and Joao Torres

Abstract: Massive irreparable rotator cuff tears remain one of the most challenging pathologies in shoulder surgery to treat, especially in the younger active patients. Although several treatment options exist, none provides superior long-term results. Over the last few years, a promising technique has emerged-the Superior Capsular Reconstruction (SCR). This technique reinforces the superior capsule to keep the humeral head centered within the glenoid.

Traumatic Atlanto-Axial Rotary Subluxation (AARS) in a 6-Year-Old Child during Recreational Judo Practice: A Case Report and Mini-Review of Serious Neck Injuries in Judo

Authors: Carl De Cree

Abstract: A 6-year-old Caucasian girl with approximately 1 year of recreational jūdō experience presented with neck and shoulder pain while holding her head in a "Cock-robin" sideways tilted position. During a children's jūdō class while seated on "all fours" she had been subjected to an improperly executed turnover performed by a boy of similar age, body mass and experience. Because of increasing torticollis symptoms after class she was taken by her parents to a local hospital's emergency department where X-rays showed a mid-clavicular fracture. It was not until 7 weeks post-accident that a CT scan was ordered and a type-III traumatic acute AARS causing her clinical symptoms was recognized.

Sensing Devices to Aid Coaches and Sports Training of People with Motor and Intellectual Limitations

Authors: Lucas Vacilotto Bonfati, Caroline Peixoto Santos, Leticia Eloy Smaniotto, Jose Jair Alves Mendes Jr, Leandro Martinez Vargas, and Sergio Luiz Stevan Jr

Abstract: There is a growing development of systems using IoT involving the training and monitoring of people with special needs. These sensing techniques are important to guarantee the correct analysis of the information. Also, these systems aim to provide parameters for the coach while tests and activities are performed by the selected individuals, whether these people are athletes, a person doing a rehabilitation program or a group with special needs.

Osteoporosis: A Major Problem - Worldwide

Authors: Ulku Akarirmak

Abstract: Osteoporosis is characterized by reduced bone mass and deterioration in bone architecture, resulting in decreased bone strength, increased bone fragility and fracture risk. Fragility fractures are associated with acute and chronic pain, morbidity, deformity, disability and increased mortality for patients. This also means major costs to society.

Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) Therapy in Musculoskeletal Rehabilitation

Authors: Michael A Fitzgerald and Wade Rankin

Abstract: Blood flow restriction (BFR) therapy has emerged as a novel approach to improve outcomes in musculoskeletal rehabilitation. It was previously thought that heavy-load therapy at 60-70% of one's maximum effort (1RM) was the primary way to increase strength and improve function. However, current evidence suggests that venous occlusion proximal to a muscle body may confer the same results with low-load therapy at 20-30% of 1RM.

Pre-Season Training Affects Negatively the Immunological Parameters and Creatine Kinase but not Power Performance in Young Soccer Players

Authors: Eduardo Henrique Frazilli Pascoal, Juliano Henrique Borges, Clovis Alberto Franciscon, Luiz Andrade, Leandro Mateus Pagoto Spigolon and Joao Paulo Borin

Abstract: The training content, volume and intensity are determinants on the training load understand, since it can lead to a chronic fatigue status that affect biochemical, immunological and performance variables. This study aimed to evaluate changes in the creatine kinase (CK) activity, white blood cells subpopulations and lower-limb power performance of U19 soccer players in accordance of the training content during pre-season period.

Exercise Associated Muscle Cramps - A Current Perspective

Authors: Jun Qiu and Jie Kang

Abstract: Exercise-associated muscle cramps (EAMC) are a common condition experienced by recreational and competitive athletes and often require medical attention during or immediately after sports events. Despite the high prevalence of this condition, the etiology of EAMC remains poorly understood, and there is a lack of high levels of evidence to guide the management of this condition.

Change of Direction Tasks: Does the Eccentric Muscle Contraction Really Matter?

Authors: Helmi Chaabene

Abstract: The capacity to quickly change direction while sprinting, known also under the term cutting or else change of direction ability (COD), is paramount for many sporting disciplines and particularly for team sports (e.g., soccer, handball, basketball, etc…). In fact, COD is one of the main agility components that defines movement where no immediate response to a stimulus is needed.
