Segment Coordination Variability Differs by Years of Running Experience.

Med Sci Sports Exerc 2019 Jan 24. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

Michigan Performance Research Laboratory, School of Kinesiology.

Running is a popular activity that results in high rates of overuse injury, with less-experienced runners becoming injured at higher rates than their more-experienced peers. While measures of joint kinematics and kinetics and ground reaction forces have been associated with overuse running injuries, similar differences across levels of running experience have not been found. As running is a motor skill that may develop with experience, an analysis of segment coordination and its variability could provide additional insight into why injury incidence decreases with increasing experience.

Since such transitions could precipitate falls and resultant injuries, evaluation and rehabilitation of non-steady state gait in those patients are important. Whereas body weight supported treadmill training (BWSTT) provides a safe and controlled environment for gait training, it is unable to adequately train for gait transitions since the typical linear treadmill does not allow for changes in walking direction and natural fluctuations in speed.

First MTP joint instability - Expanding the concept of "Turf-toe" injuries.

Foot Ankle Surg 2018 Nov 22. Epub 2018 Nov 22.

Ankle and Foot Medicine and Surgery of UNIFESP - Paulista Medical School, Brazil.

Background: Although the classic definition of the Turf-toe injury refers to a very specific clinical and pathological picture, we think that the concept can be broadened to encompass a wide variety of traumatic lesions of the first metatarsophalangeal joint (MTP1). These are lesions typically difficult to diagnose, with a large variation of outcomes and a potential to impair patients' functional performance on a definitive and perennial basis. The objective of this study is to present the result obtained by treating 24 cases of traumatic injuries to the MTP1 joint in a midterm follow-up time. Read More

Foot and Ankle Injuries in Soccer.

Am J Orthop (Belle Mead NJ) 2018 Oct;47(10)

University of California, Davis, Department of Orthopaedics, 3301 C St, Ste 1700, Sacramento, CA 95816, USA. Email:

The ankle is one of the most commonly injured joints in soccer and represents a significant cost to the healthcare system. The ligaments that stabilize the ankle joint determine its biomechanics-alterations of which result from various soccer-related injuries. Acute sprains are among the most common injury in soccer players and are generally treated conservatively, with emphasis placed on secondary prevention to reduce the risk for future sprains and progression to chronic ankle instability.

Higher Rates of Lower Extremity Injury on Synthetic Turf Compared With Natural Turf Among National Football League Athletes: Epidemiologic Confirmation of a Biomechanical Hypothesis.

Am J Sports Med 2019 Jan 19;47(1):189-196. Epub 2018 Nov 19.

Center for Applied Biomechanics, University of Virginia; Biomechanics Consulting & Research (Biocore), Charlottesville, Virginia, USA.

Background:: Biomechanical studies have shown that synthetic turf surfaces do not release cleats as readily as natural turf, and it has been hypothesized that concomitant increased loading on the foot contributes to the incidence of lower body injuries. This study evaluates this hypothesis from an epidemiologic perspective, examining whether the lower extremity injury rate in National Football League (NFL) games is greater on contemporary synthetic turfs as compared with natural surfaces.

Hypothesis:: Incidence of lower body injury is higher on synthetic turf than on natural turf among elite NFL athletes playing on modern-generation surfaces. Read More

Effect of simulated joint instability and bracing on ankle and subtalar joint flexibility.

J Biomech 2019 Jan 2;82:234-243. Epub 2018 Nov 2.

Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Old Dominion University, Norfolk, VA, USA. Electronic address:

It is clinically challenging to distinguish between ankle and subtalar joints instability in vivo. Understanding the changes in load-displacement at the ankle and subtalar joints after ligament injuries may detect specific changes in joint characteristics that cannot be detected by investigating changes in range of motion alone. The effect of restricting joints end range of motion with ankle braces was already established, but little is known about the effect of an ankle brace on the flexibility of the injured ankle and subtalar joints.
