Real-Life Application of a Wearable Device towards Injury Prevention in Tennis: A Single-Case Study.

Sensors (Basel) 2022 Jun 11;22(12). Epub 2022 Jun 11.

Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, University of Maribor, Koroška Cesta 046, 2000 Maribor, Slovenia.

The purpose of this article is to present the use of a previously validated wearable sensor device, Armbeep, in a real-life application, to enhance a tennis player's training by monitoring and analysis of the time, physiological, movement, and tennis-specific workload and recovery indicators, based on fused sensor data acquired by the wearable sensor-a miniature wearable sensor device, designed to be worn on a wrist, that can detect and record movement and biometric information, where the basic signal processing is performed directly on the device, while the more complex signal analysis is performed in the cloud. The inertial measurements and pulse-rate detection of the wearable device were validated previously, showing acceptability for monitoring workload and recovery during tennis practice and matches. This study is one of the first attempts to monitor the daily workload and recovery of tennis players under real conditions. Read More

Manual Therapy Facilitates Homeostatic Adaptation to Bone Microstructural Declines Induced by a Rat Model of Repetitive Forceful Task.

Int J Mol Sci 2022 Jun 13;23(12). Epub 2022 Jun 13.

Center for Translational Medicine, Lewis Katz School of Medicine, Temple University, Philadelphia, PA 19140, USA.

The effectiveness of manual therapy in reducing the catabolic effects of performing repetitive intensive force tasks on bones has not been reported. We examined if manual therapy could reduce radial bone microstructural declines in adult female Sprague-Dawley rats performing a 12-week high-repetition and high-force task, with or without simultaneous manual therapy to forelimbs. Additional rats were provided 6 weeks of rest after task cessation, with or without manual therapy. Read More

Role of polygenic and environmental factors in the co-occurrence of depression and psychosis symptoms: a network analysis.

Transl Psychiatry 2022 Jun 22;12(1):259. Epub 2022 Jun 22.

Department of Psychology, Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience, King's College London, London, UK.

Depression and psychosis are often comorbid; they also have overlapping genetic and environmental risk factors, including trauma and area-level exposures. The present study aimed to advance understanding of this comorbidity via a network approach, by (1) identifying bridge nodes that connect clusters of lifetime depression and psychosis symptoms and (2) evaluating the influence of polygenic and environmental risk factors in these symptoms. This study included data from European ancestry participants in UK Biobank, a large population-based sample (N = 77,650). Read More

Clin J Sport Med 2022 Jan 5. Epub 2022 Jan 5.

Department of Orthopedics, Orthopedic Hand Surgery-Board Certified, Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center, Corvallis, Oregon.

The young, overhead throwing athlete is prone to overuse injuries because of their variable skeletal maturity and often improper technique. An overuse injury to the digit(s) in the overhead throwing athlete, Little Leaguer's Finger, has never been discussed in the literature to our knowledge. We present a case of a 14-year-old man with atraumatic pain, swelling, and edema to his dominant pitching index finger after throwing greater than 90 pitches in one setting. Read More

Epidemiology of Overuse Injuries in US Secondary School Athletics From 2014-2015 to 2018-2019 Using the National Athletic Treatment, Injury and Outcomes Network Surveillance Program.

J Athl Train 2022 May;57(5):510-516

Department of Kinesiology, University of Wisconsin, Madison.

Context: With 8 million annual US high school student-athletes, the epidemiology of sport-related injuries has garnered significant interest. The most recent studies examining overuse injury rates in high school sports were based on data from 2012 to 2013 and, therefore, may not reflect current overuse injury rates in high school sports.

Objective: To (1) determine overuse time-loss (TL) and non-time-loss (NTL) injury rates among high school student-athletes using National Athletic Treatment, Injury and Outcomes Network Surveillance Program (NATION-SP) data collected from 2014-2015 to 2018-2019 and (2) compare overuse injury rates based on student-athlete sex defined by whether it was a boys' sport or a girls' sport, the sport itself, and the injury location.

[Differential therapeutic Approaches in Treatment of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome].

Handchir Mikrochir Plast Chir 2022 Jun 10;54(3):236-243. Epub 2022 Jun 10.

BG Unfallklinik Ludwigshafen Klinik für Hand-, Plastische und Rekonstruktive Chirurgie, Schwerbrandverletztenzentrum, Klinik für Plastische Chirurgie der Universität Heidelberg.

Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is one of the most common compression neuropathies. The therapeutic concept should be tailored to each patient individually, with initial non-surgical treatment being the standard of care for early CTS. Primary surgical intervention should be considered in more advanced diseases stages, in case of concomitant pathologies (including space-occupying lesions, complex regional pain syndrome or diabetic neuropathy), if non-surgical strategies have failed or in pregnancy-related CTS.

Sci Rep 2022 Jun 1;12(1):9122. Epub 2022 Jun 1.

AUVA - Trauma Hospital (UKH) Styria | Graz, Teaching Hospital of the Medical University of Graz, Göstinger Straße 24, 8020, Graz, Austria.

We sought to evaluate the findings of our anatomically landmarks based mini-open procedure (MCTR) through a palmar approach and to compare its outcome and practicability to the conventional method (OCTR). The study consisted of 100 matched patients (n = 50 MCTR, n = 50 OCTR) with a minimum follow-up of three years. The outcome was characterized via the Disabilities of Arm, Shoulder and Hand Score (DASH), Symptom Severity Scale (SSS), Functional Status Scale (FSC), and Visual Analogue Scale (VAS). Read More

Adjunctive Procedures for Median Nerve Decompression in Carpal Tunnel Syndrome An Intraoperative Somatosensory Evoked Potential Study.

Bull Hosp Jt Dis (2013) 2022 Jun;80(2):213-217

The objective of this study was to determine the role of ad- junctive surgical procedures on the median nerve for carpal tunnel syndrome as measured by somatosensory evoked potentials (SEPs) on the nerve. Fifty-five median nerves in 47 patients were studied. In each patient, a base-line SEP was recorded in the operating room prior to incision and then intraoperatively following each of three sequential pro- cedures: division of the transverse carpal ligament, an epi- neurolysis of the nerve, and finally, either an epineurotomy or epineurectomy that we refer to as a "limited internal neu- rolysis" since it did not involve any intraneural dissection of fascicles.
