Utilization of Botulinum Toxin for Musculoskeletal Disorders.

Curr Sports Med Rep 2020 Jun;19(6):217-222

Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, Bethesda, MD.

Rehabilitation from musculoskeletal injuries is challenging with multiple intrinsic and extrinsic factors influencing athletes, conditions, and length of recovery. Multidisciplinary treatment strategies aim to address pathophysiology, mechanical, and psychosocial factors of injuries. An essential element in the recovery from musculoskeletal injuries is pain control and the return of physiologic function. Read More

The feasibility and impact of instrument-assisted manual therapy (IAMT) for the lower back on the structural and functional properties of the lumbar area in female soccer players: a randomised, placebo-controlled pilot study design.

Pilot Feasibility Stud 2020 16;6:47. Epub 2020 Apr 16.

6Conservative and Rehabilitative Orthopaedics, Department of Sport and Health Sciences, Technical University of Munich, Munich, Germany.

Background: Myofascial (self-)treatments, such as foam rollers to therapeutic instruments in manual therapy, are utilized increasingly in prevention and therapy in healthy people, athletes, and patients suffering from chronic back pain. However, there is limited knowledge about the effectiveness of treatment and the underlying mechanisms of myofascial therapies, especially for instrument-assisted manual therapy (IAMT). Therefore, this pilot study will investigate the feasibility and impact of IAMT for the lumbar area compared with heat application and placebo treatment as a basis for calculating the sample size for further full studies.

THE ROLE of a BIKE FIT in CYCLISTS with HIP PAIN. A CLINICAL COMMENTARY.

Int J Sports Phys Ther 2019 Jun;14(3):468-486

Brisbane Hip Clinic, Queensland, Australia. School of Medicine, Griffith University, Queensland, Australia.

Hip pathology is common amongst athletes and the general population. The mechanics of cycling have the potential to exacerbate symptomatic hip pathology and progress articular pathology in patients with morphologic risk factors such as femoroacetabular impingement. A professional fit of the bicycle to the individual which aims to optimize hip joint function can allow patients with hip pathology to exercise in comfort when alternative high impact exercise such as running may not be possible.

British athletics muscle injury classification: a new grading system.

Br J Sports Med 2014 Sep 16;48(18):1347-51. Epub 2014 Jul 16.

British Athletics Medical Team, British Athletics National Performance Centre, LoughboroughUniversity, Loughborough, UK.

The commonly used muscle injury grading systems based on three grades of injury, representing minor, moderate and complete injuries to the muscle, are lacking in diagnostic accuracy and provide limited prognostic information to the clinician. In recent years, there have been a number of proposals for alternative grading systems. While there is recent evidence regarding the prognostic features of muscle injuries, this evidence has not often been incorporated into the grading proposals. Read More

Department of Orthopedics, University Orthopaedic Center, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, UT 84121, USA.

Back pain is common in athletes and a source of missed time from practice and competition. Pain generators include muscle (strain), ligament (myofascial sprain and strain), intervertebral disc (herniation and degeneration), nerve (radiculopathy), joint (facet and sacroiliac (SI) joint), and bones (pars interarticularis defect). The goal of treatment of an athlete with back pain is to relieve symptoms and facilitate safe but rapid return to play with no change in performance. Read More

Practical management of iliotibial band friction syndrome in runners.

Clin J Sport Med 2006 May;16(3):261-8

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Division of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Stanford University Medical Center, Stanford, CA 94305-5336, USA.

This article outlines the practical management of iliotibial band friction syndrome (ITBFS) in running athletes. ITBFS is the most common cause of lateral knee pain in runners and is related to repetitive friction of the iliotibial band sliding over the lateral femoral epicondyle. Runners predisposed to this injury are typically in a phase of over training and often have underlying weakness of the hip abductor muscles. Read More

Allan McGavin Sports Medicine Centre, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada.

Popliteal artery entrapment syndrome (PAES) is a rare cause of exercise-induced leg pain. Entrapment occurs because of an abnormal relationship between the popliteal artery and the surrounding myofascial structures in the popliteal fossa. Arterial insufficiency in the affected limb arises with entrapment of the artery, commonly giving leg symptoms with exertion. Read More
