Spikes in acute:chronic workload ratio (ACWR) associated with a 5-7 times greater injury rate in English Premier League football players: a comprehensive 3-year study.

Br J Sports Med 2019 Feb 21. Epub 2019 Feb 21.

Sport, Exercise and Rehabilitation Sciences, University of Birmingham, Birmingham, UK.

Objectives: We examined the relation between global positioning system (GPS)-derived workloads and injury in English Premier League football players (n=33) over three seasons.

Methods: Workload and injury data were collected over three consecutive seasons. Cumulative (1-weekly, 2-weekly, 3-weekly and 4-weekly) loads in addition to acute:chronic workload ratios (ACWR) (acute workload (1-week workload)) divided by chronic workload (previous 4-week average acute workload) were classified into discrete ranges by z-scores.

Copenhagen Consensus statement 2019: physical activity and ageing.

Br J Sports Med 2019 Feb 21. Epub 2019 Feb 21.

Department of Physiology, Universitat de Valencia, Valencia, Spain.

From 19th to 22nd November 2018, 26 researchers representing nine countries and a variety of academic disciplines met in Snekkersten, Denmark, to reach evidence-based consensus about physical activity and older adults. It was recognised that the term 'older adults' represents a highly heterogeneous population. It encompasses those that remain highly active and healthy throughout the life-course with a high intrinsic capacity to the very old and frail with low intrinsic capacity. Read More

Head Injury in Soccer: From Science to the Field; summary of the head injury summit held in April 2017 in New York City, New York.

Br J Sports Med 2019 Feb 13. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

Duke Sport Sciences Institute, Duke University Health System, Durham, North Carolina, USA.

There has been an increased focus and awareness of head injury and sport-related concussion (SRC) across all sports from the medical and scientific communities, sports organisations, legislators, the media and the general population. Soccer, in particular, has been a focus of attention due to the popularity of the game, the frequency of SRC and the hypothesised effects of repetitive heading of the ball. Major League Soccer, US Soccer and the National Women's Soccer League jointly hosted a conference entitled, 'Head Injury in Soccer: From Science to the Field', on 21-22 April 2017 in New York City, New York.

Br J Sports Med 2019 Feb;53(4):213-225

Department of Family Medicine and Community Health, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA.

Sport-related concussion (SRC) is a common injury in recreational and organised sport. Over the past 30 years, there has been significant progress in our scientific understanding of SRC, which in turn has driven the development of clinical guidelines for diagnosis, assessment and management of SRC. In addition to a growing need for knowledgeable healthcare professionals to provide evidence-based care for athletes with SRC, media attention and legislation have created awareness and, in some cases, fear about many issues and unknowns surrounding SRC.

Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction and meniscal repair rates have both increased in the past 20 years in England: hospital statistics from 1997 to 2017.

Br J Sports Med 2019 Jan 19. Epub 2019 Jan 19.

Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Sciences, University of Oxford, Oxford, UK.
