Repeated Impacts Diminish the Impact Performance of Equestrian Helmets.

J Sport Rehabil 2019 Apr 15:1-5. Epub 2019 Apr 15.

Context: During thoroughbred races, jockeys are placed in potentially injurious situations, often with inadequate safety equipment. Jockeys frequently sustain head injuries; therefore, it is important that they wear appropriately certified helmets.

Objective: The goals of this study are (1) to perform impact attenuation testing according to ASTM F1163-15 on a sample of equestrian helmets commonly used by jockeys in the United States and (2) to quantify headform acceleration and residual crush after repeat impacts at the same location.

Eccentric Exercise, Tendon Thickness, Pain and Function in Achilles Tendinopathy: A Systematic Review.

J Sport Rehabil 2019 Mar 12:1-30. Epub 2019 Mar 12.

3 Centre for Health, Sport & Rehabilitation Sciences Research, University of Salford, manchester, United Kingdom.

Context:: Exercise is seen as the most evidence based treatment for managing tendinopathy and although the type of exercise used to manage tendinopathy may induce adaptation in healthy tendons, it is not clear whether these adaptations occur in tendinopathy and if so whether they are associated with improved clinical outcomes.

Objective:: The aim of the study was to synthesise available evidence for adaptation of the Achilles tendon to eccentric exercise and the relationship between adaptation (change in tendon thickness) and clinical outcomes among people with Achilles tendinopathy.

Evidence Acquisition:: The search was performed in September 2018 in several databases. Read More

Sex-Specific Dependence of Linear and Nonlinear Postural Control Metrics on Anthropometrics During Clinical Balance Tests in Healthy Young Adults.

J Sport Rehabil 2019 Mar 12:1-31. Epub 2019 Mar 12.

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

Context:: Previous work suggests that balance behavior is a sex-dependent, complex process which can be characterized by linear and nonlinear metrics. While a certain degree of center of pressure variability may be expected based on sexual dimorphism, there is evidence to suggest that these effects are obscured by potential interactions between sex and anthropometric factors. To date, no study has accounted for such interactive effects using both linear and nonlinear measures. Read More

Dynamic Leap and Balance Test (DLBT): Ability to Discriminate Balance Deficits in Individuals with Chronic Ankle Instability.

J Sport Rehabil 2019 Jan 24:1-28. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

2 Department of Kinesiology, The Pennsylvania State University, University Park, PA.

Context:: The Dynamic Leap Balance Test (DLBT) is a new dynamic balance task that requires serial changes in base of support (BOS) with alternating limb support and recovery of dynamic stability, as compared to the Y modification of the Star Excursion Balance Test (Y-SEBT), which assesses dynamic stability over an unchanging BOS.

Objectives:: To assess the dynamic balance performance in two different types of dynamic balance tasks, the DLBT and the SEBT, in subjects with unilateral chronic ankle instability (CAI) when compared with healthy. We hypothesized that the DLBT score would significantly differ between the CAI involved and uninvolved limbs (contralateral and healthy matched) and demonstrate a modest (r=. Read More

Correlation of Head Impact Exposures to Vestibular Ocular Assessments.

J Sport Rehabil 2019 Jan 24:1-19. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

2 Department of Physical Therapy, Sacred Heart University, Fairfield, CT.

Context:: Managing a concussion injury should involve the incorporation of a multi-faceted approach, including a vision assessment. The fronto-parietal circuits and subcortical nuclei are susceptible to trauma from a concussion injury, leading to dysfunction of the vestibular-ocular system. Research investigating the effect of cumulative subconcussive impacts on neurological function is still in its infancy, but repetitive head impacts may result in vestibular system dysfunction.

Realistic Soccer-Specific Virtual Environment Exposes High-Risk Lower Extremity Biomechanics.

J Sport Rehabil 2019 Jan 24:1-23. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

1 The SPORT Center, Division of Sports Medicine, Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, Cincinnati, OH.

Context:: Laboratory-based biomechanical analyses of sport-relevant movements such as landing and cutting have classically been used to quantify kinematic and kinetic factors in the context of injury risk, which are then used to inform targeted interventions designed to improve risky movement patterns during sport. However, the non-contextual nature of standard assessments presents challenges for assessing sport-relevant skill transfer.

Objective:: It may be more effective to examine injury-risk biomechanics on individuals performing sport-specific tasks within the actual sport environment, or more feasibly, within a simulated sport environment using virtual reality (VR). Read More

Can the Use of Unstable Surfaces and Instruction for Conscious Abdominal Contraction Increase the EMG Activity of the Periscapular Muscles During the Dynamic Push-Up?

J Sport Rehabil 2019 Jan 24:1-20. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

1 Department of Physical Therapy, University of Pernambuco, Petrolina, Brazil.

Context:: It is believed that conscious abdominal contraction (CAC) during exercise encourages greater periscapular activation through existing myofascial connections. On the other hand, it is postulated that the use of unstable surfaces would promote greater neuromuscular demand.

Objective:: The objective of this study was to analyze the effect of CAC on periscapular muscle activity during push-up plus exercise on stable and unstable surfaces. Read More

Efficacy of Kinesio Taping and McConnell Taping Techniques in the Management of Anterior Knee Pain.

J Sport Rehabil 2019 Jan 29:1-8. Epub 2019 Jan 29.

Context: Anterior knee pain also known as patellofemoral pain syndrome is a frequently encountered musculoskeletal disorder that worsens with activity. The multifactorial etiology of patellofemoral pain syndrome alters lower-extremity mechanics, increasing patellofemoral joint stresses during weight-bearing tasks. Kinesio and McConnell tapings are often incorporated into the treatment, but their efficacy is still unclear. Read More

The Effectiveness of Deep Oscillation Therapy on Reducing Swelling and Pain in Athletes With Acute Lateral Ankle Sprains.

J Sport Rehabil 2019 Apr 11:1-4. Epub 2019 Apr 11.

Clinical Scenario: Ankle sprains are the most prevalent athletic-related musculoskeletal injury treated by athletic trainers, often affecting activities of daily living and delaying return to play. Most of these cases present with pain and swelling in the ankle, resulting in decreased range of motion and strength deficits. Due to these impairments, proper treatment is necessary to avoid additional loss of play and prevent future injuries. Read More

A Study on Trunk Muscle Activation of 2 Deep Water Running Styles (High-Knee and Cross-Country Style) and Land Walking.

J Sport Rehabil 2019 Apr 16:1-6. Epub 2019 Apr 16.

Deep water running (DWR) is an aquatic aerobic exercise which involves running in water without the feet touching the bottom of the pool, and it may involve different activation of trunk muscles compared with running or walking on land. This form of exercise is gradually being adopted as a form of therapeutic exercise for people with low back pain. It is proposed that different types of running or walking in water may be a more comfortable form of training for the trunk and abdominal muscles compared with exercising on dry land. Read More
