from The Associated Press via Sports Illustrated    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The NFL is helping craft legislation in states around the country that would protect young athletes from the long-term effects of concussions. Sen. Steve Lathrop of Omaha last week introduced a bill in Nebraska that aims to raise coaches' awareness of symptoms and prevent athletes from returning to practice or competition too soon. More

For Young Athletes, Knee Surgery Opens Door To Pain
from NPR    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Injury to the ACL — the anterior cruciate ligament — is a well-known athletic wound, as famous as rotator cuffs or concussions. And orthopedic surgeons can repair a damaged ACL. Ah, but here's the rub. Doctors know that because the surgery allows young athletes to continue to compete aggressively and put stress on that damaged knee, a significant number will, in as few as 10 years, suffer degenerative osteoarthritis. That is so much more debilitating and painful — and must be endured for the rest of one's life. Some may even require knee replacement. More

Close Look at Orthotics Raises a Welter of Doubts
from The New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Benno M. Nigg has become a leading researcher on orthotics — those shoe inserts that many athletes use to try to prevent injuries. And what he has found is not very reassuring. Do they help or harm athletes who use them? And is the huge orthotics industry — from customized shoe inserts costing hundreds of dollars to over-the-counter ones sold at every drugstore — based on science or on wishful thinking? More

Study: Steroids Are Readily Available Through Amazon
from The Washington Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Back in the 1990s, steroids could be surreptitiously purchased out of the trunk of somebody's car. A decade ago, they could be found in dietary supplements sold on bodybuilding Internet sites. Now, steroids are readily available through, according to a prominent anti-doping researcher who ordered several dietary supplements from the consumer website and tested them to verify that they indeed contained potent, illegal - and potentially dangerous - oral steroids.

Ginger Can Ease Muscle Soreness
from The New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Ginger's ability to calm an upset stomach is well known. But more recently, scientists have wondered whether its soothing effects might extend to sore muscles. Ginger, a member of the same plant family as turmeric, contains anti-inflammatory compounds and volatile oils — gingerols — that show analgesic and sedative effects in animal studies. So last year a team of researchers looked at whether ginger might do the same in humans. More
