Management of foot and ankle injuries in pediatric and adolescent athletes: a narrative review.

Orthop Res Rev 2018 4;10:19-30. Epub 2018 Apr 4.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Nationwide Children's Hospital, Columbus, OH, USA,

In this review, we focus on the treatment of injuries to the foot and ankle in the adolescent athlete. While many injuries in the adolescent foot and ankle are similar to or overlap with their counterparts in the adult population, the anatomy of the adolescent ankle, especially the presence of growth plates, results in different injury patterns in many cases and calls for specific management approaches. We discuss the unique anatomy of the pediatric patient as well as the diagnostic evaluation and treatment of common injuries in the young athlete. Read More

School Nurses on the Front Lines of Medicine: Emergencies Associated With Sport and Physical Activities: Part 1.

NASN Sch Nurse 2019 Feb 9:1942602X18819223. Epub 2019 Feb 9.

Professor, Departments of Emergency Medicine and Pediatrics, Penn State College of Medicine.

Illness and injury associated with sport and physical activities may occur in the school setting. Although most sport-related illness and injury in students are considered minor emergencies, life- and limb-threatening illnesses or injuries may occur, such as sudden cardiac arrest, heat stroke, status asthmaticus, catastrophic brain or cervical spine injuries, hypoglycemia, blunt chest/abdominal injuries, or extremity fractures requiring surgery. It is important for the school nurse to recognize potential life- and limb-threatening emergencies associated with sport and physical activity, to initiate stabilization of the student with life- and limb-threatening symptoms, and to triage these students to an appropriate level of care (back to the classroom, home with their guardian with follow up at their primary healthcare provider's office, or directly to the closest emergency department via emergency medical services).

Medial malleolar stress fracture resulting from repetitive stress caused by lateral ankle instability: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2019 Feb;98(5):e14311

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Soonchunhyang University Hospital Cheonan, 31, Suncheonhyang 6-gil, Dongam-gu, Cheonan, Korea.

Rationale: Stress fractures are most commonly sustained in the lower extremities owing to the repetitive weight-bearing forces. They are overuse injuries that are seen often in athletes, but rare in the general population, so early diagnosis and proper treatment are important to enable athletes to return to activity. This is a rare example of successful treatment of a medial malleolar stress fracture with lateral ankle instability. Read More

Saint Vincent's Hospital, Darlinghurst, Australia.

Background:: "Ankle sprain" is a common injury, and >20% of patients may develop chronic instability for which surgery is indicated. The modified Broström-Gould (MBG) procedure remains the gold standard; however, there are a number of relative contraindications to this procedure, and the longer-term outcomes after the MBG have been questioned. An alternative procedure is augmentation of a primary repair with a ligament augmentation reconstruction system (LARS). Read More

J Bodyw Mov Ther 2019 Jan 24;23(1):74-81. Epub 2018 Oct 24.

College of Human & Health Sciences, Swansea University, Singleton Park, Swansea, Wales, SA2 8PP, UK. Electronic address:

Background: Myofascial release (MFR) is used to restore tissue extensibility of the fascia tissue and is considered to be useful in a number of clinical settings such as low back pain, ankle injuries, fibromyalgia, and headaches. There is, however, despite the popularity of MFR in manual therapy, little consensus on whether it leads to biomechanical, systemic or interoceptive outcomes.

Aims: This study aimed to explore the immediate biomechanical (increased elasticity for increased range of motion), systemic (local vs. Read More

Repeated anodal trans-spinal direct current stimulation results in long-term reduction of spasticity in mice with spinal cord injury.

J Physiol 2019 Jan 28. Epub 2019 Jan 28.

Department of Physical Therapy, The College of Staten Island, Staten Island, New York, 10314.

Key Points: Spasticity is a disorder of muscle tone that is associated with lesions of the motor system. This condition involves an overactive spinal reflex loop that resists passive lengthening of muscles. Previously, we established that application of anodal trans-spinal direct current stimulation (tsDCS) for short periods of time to anaesthetized mice sustaining a spinal cord injury leads to an instantaneous reduction of spasticity.
