Use of Patient-Reported Outcome Measures in Athletic Training: Common Measures, Selection Considerations, and Practical Barriers.

J Athl Train 2019 Apr 1. Epub 2019 Apr 1.

Athletic Training Programs, Department of Interdisciplinary Health Sciences, A.T. Still University, Mesa, Arizona.

Changes in Patient-Reported Outcome Measures From the Time of Injury to Return to Play in Adolescent Athletes at Secondary Schools With an Athletic Trainer.

J Athl Train 2019 Feb 22;54(2):170-176. Epub 2019 Jan 22.

Lebanon Valley College, Annville, PA.

Context: Typically, athletic trainers rely on clinician-centered measures to evaluate athletes' return-to-play status. However, clinician-centered measures do not provide information regarding patients' perceptions.

Objective: To determine whether clinically important changes in patient-reported outcomes were observed from the time of lower extremity injury to the time of return to play in adolescent athletes. Read More

Potential Mediators of Load-Related Changes in Movement Complexity in Young, Healthy Adults.

J Athl Train 2019 Jan 18;54(1):70-80. Epub 2019 Jan 18.

Department of Kinesiology, The University of North Carolina at Greensboro.

Context: Movement screening has become increasingly popular among tactical professionals. This popularity has motivated the design of interventions that cater to improving outcomes on the screens themselves, which are often scored in reference to an objective norm. In contrast to the assumptions underlying this approach, dynamical systems theory suggests that movements arise as a function of continuously evolving constraints and that optimal movement strategies may not exist.

Potential Mediators of Load-Related Decreases in Movement Quality in Young, Healthy Adults.

J Athl Train 2019 Jan 16;54(1):81-89. Epub 2019 Jan 16.

Applied Neuromechanics Research Group, Department of Kinesiology, The University of North Carolina at Greensboro.

Context: Predicting and promoting physical performance are important goals within the tactical professional community. Movement screens are frequently used in this capacity but are poor predictors of performance outcomes. It has recently been shown that prediction improved when movement quality was evaluated under load, but the mechanisms underlying this improvement remain unclear. Read More

The Omega-3 Index in National Collegiate Athletic Association Division I Collegiate Football Athletes.

J Athl Train 2019 Jan 15;54(1):7-11. Epub 2019 Jan 15.

The Sport Science Center at Texas Christian University, Fort Worth.

Context: The essential omega-3 fatty acids (ω-3 FAs) eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) exhibit vital biological roles and are critical for cardiovascular and neurologic health. Compared with the general population, football athletes may be at an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. Further, those same athletes are also exposed to repetitive head impacts, which may lead to long-term neurologic deficits. Read More

J Athl Train 2018 Nov 7;53(11):1082-1088. Epub 2019 Jan 7.

Department of Exercise and Sports Science, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Context: Developing osteoarthritis is common after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR). Monitoring changes in femoral cartilage size after ACLR may be a way to detect the earliest structural alterations before the radiographic onset of osteoarthritis. Diagnostic ultrasonography (US) offers a clinically accessible and valid method for evaluating anterior femoral cartilage size. Read More

J Athl Train 2018 Nov 7;53(11):1056-1062. Epub 2019 Jan 7.

Department of Physical Therapy, Universidade Federal de São Carlos, Brazil.

Context: Whereas alterations in scapular kinematics, scapulothoracic muscle activity, and pain sensitivity have been described in adult swimmers, no researchers have examined these outcomes in young swimmers.

Objectives: To compare scapular kinematics, scapulothoracic muscle activation, and the pressure-pain threshold (PPT) of the shoulder muscles among young nonpractitioners (those who were not involved in sports involving the upper limbs), amateur swimmers, and competitive swimmers.

Design: Cross-sectional study. Read More

Taping to Improve Scapular Dyskinesis, Scapular Upward Rotation, and Pectoralis Minor Length in Overhead Athletes.

J Athl Train 2018 Nov 7;53(11):1063-1070. Epub 2019 Jan 7.

School of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation, Dokuz Eylül University, İzmir, Turkey.

Context: Deviations in scapular motions and subsequent alterations in associated soft tissues are thought to contribute to overuse shoulder injuries in overhead athletes. Whereas rigid and Kinesio taping are recommended for preventing these injuries, high-level evidence from clinical trials is still needed.

Objective: To determine and compare the short-term effects of rigid and Kinesio taping on scapular dyskinesis, scapular upward rotation, and pectoralis minor length in asymptomatic overhead athletes. Read More

Practical Torso Cooling During Soccer-Specific Exercise in the Heat.

J Athl Train 2018 Nov 7;53(11):1089-1097. Epub 2019 Jan 7.

Department of Life Sciences, University of Roehampton, Whitelands College, London, United Kingdom.

Context: Precooling and midevent cooling of the torso using cooling vests can improve exercise performance in the heat with or without physiological changes; however, the effects of such cooling during intermittent exercise in the heat are unknown.

Objective: To investigate the effects of torso cooling during intermittent exercise in the heat (35°C, 50% relative humdity) on sprint performance and the physiological and perceptual responses to the exercise.

Design: Crossover study. Read More

National Athletic Trainers' Association Position Statement: Immediate Management of Appendicular Joint Dislocations.

J Athl Train 2018 Dec 4;53(12):1117-1128. Epub 2019 Jan 4.

¶ Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, The Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD.

Objective: To provide certified athletic trainers (ATs) with recommendations and guidelines for the immediate management of patients with joint dislocations.

Background: One of the primary responsibilities of ATs is to provide immediate injury care for active individuals. Although ATs are confronted with managing patients who have many kinds of injuries, the onsite management of a joint dislocation presents challenges in evaluation and immediate treatment. Read More
