Concussions on the Rise in College Hoops
from The Associated Press    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Concussions are often associated with more violent sports such as football, hockey, even soccer. But as basketball has become more brutish, the number of head injuries has increased. A study of all divisions of NCAA sports by the National Athletic Trainers' Association showed head and facial injuries in basketball increased by an annual average of 6.2 percent from 1988-2004. Concussions represented 3.6 percent of all injuries reported. Women basketball players were three times more likely to get a concussion than men. More

Not Enough Athletic Trainers to Fill Void
from    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The National Federation of State High School Associations recently announced, effective the 2010-11 school year, a referee must remove from competition any athlete showing any signs of concussion in any contest in any sport. For that athlete to return to the same game, he or she must be cleared to do so by an "appropriate health-care professional." In effect then, any high school sponsoring an athletic contest will have little choice but to have an "appropriate health care professional" on hand for each and every contest, regardless of level. Not just at the varsity football game on a fall Friday night.  More

Jump in Kids' Sports Injuries Due to Overuse
from BusinessWeek    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Orthopedic surgeons warn that sports injuries in children are rising dramatically, creating a "silent epidemic." But they add that awareness and early treatment can keep young athletes from developing serious problems. One expert scheduled to speak at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons in New Orleans said injuries are increasing because kids are playing sports year-round — often without seasonal breaks — and being exposed to more athletic activity by playing on more than one team at once.  More

Soccer Reduces Risk of Falls and Bone Fractures
from Science Daily    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
An extensive research project has studied the effects of soccer on muscle strength, postural balance, bone mineral density and reflex response to a sudden push in the back among adult women and men. Five scientific articles are now being published in Scandinavian Journal of Medicine & Science in Sports showing that regular participation in soccer increases both bone mass and bone density, causes a significant improvement in standing postural balance and improves muscle strength. Together, these effects reduce the risk of falls and bone fractures.  More
