Texting — A Quick Way to Report Sports Injuries
Health24
Text messaging is a quick and effective way to get recreational athletes to report injuries, according to a new Australian study. Playing recreational sports is a good way to get more exercise, researchers said. But little is known about injuries at that level. What's more, injury prevention strategies that work at the elite level aren't necessarily relevant to recreational leagues — which have different types of players, different training loads and a different style of play.

Taking Notice of the Hidden Injury
ESPN
Four-time Academic All-Big 10 honoree and defensive tackle Will Heininger's biggest battle was not waged in the classroom or on the football field. "I had emotional pain that was overwhelming; I would wake up, and from morning until I feel asleep — when I was able sleep — I had troubling thoughts that were utterly consuming," said the 2011 Michigan honors graduate. "Not a minute would go by in a day, without my depression on my mind ... this, this felt impossible."

Knee Injuries Worry NFL Players More Than Concussions
USA Today
NFL players worry about head injuries and their potential long-term consequences but not nearly as much as they worry about injuries to their legs, particularly their knees, that can end careers. USA TODAY Sports surveyed 293 players on 20 NFL teams and asked what body part they were most concerned about injuring in a game: 46 percent said knees or other parts of their legs, 24 percent said head and neck and 26 percent said none.

Concussion Crisis: Are Young Athletes at Risk?
Albuquerque Journal
The concussion. It's the most discussed and debated injury from the games we play. Its numbers are mind-boggling, with from 1.6 million to 3.8 million sports and recreation head injuries occurring a year in the U.S., according to the National Academies of Science. In years past, when players "had their bell rung," it was dismissed as part of the game. But that has changed as research has demonstrated the link between repeated concussions and short-term and long-term debilitating brain damage.

Ankle Braces Better Than Neuromuscular Training
Health24
To prevent a second sprained ankle, wearing a brace may be more effective than neuromuscular training, but neither method is foolproof, say Dutch researchers. They found that study participants who had sprained their ankles were about half as likely to suffer a second sprain when they wore a brace, compared to those who only got neuromuscular training. This doesn't mean people with sprained ankles should go for braces and forget about neuromuscular training.

How to Prevent Winter Sports Injuries
HealthDay
Get out and enjoy winter but take steps to protect yourself from common ski- and snowboard-related injuries such as sprains, strains, dislocations and fractures, an orthopedist says. "No matter your skill level, everyone is susceptible to injury on the slopes," said Dr. Allston Stubbs.

Athletes Shouldering Quite a Burden
Northwest Indiana Times
While the snow piles up around us, here's a happy thought to sustain you: spring training is just more than a month away at the professional level. Keep in mind however, that high-school-level players and younger, especially pitchers, are busy with lessons and indoor practices to prepare for the warmer weather, too. Unfortunately, that translates to arm overuse and shoulder trouble. Ditto for the volleyball players who are now in the middle of club season.
