Prominent Athletic Trainer Breaks Tradition, Earns University Honor
Central Michigan Life
Rene Shingles remembers a time when a female athletic trainer's input wasn't welcome in the locker room. While working at South Carolina's Newberry College in the 1980s, Shingles was in the process of diagnosing an elbow injury for a starting football player. She, as well as the rest of her staff, thought he had fractured his elbow, but the X-ray came back negative. Knowing the fracture was still there, she decided it wasn't safe for the athlete to continue to play. The coach vehemently disagreed.

In Europe, Echoes of America as Concussions Spur Debate
The New York Times
The debate over how to respond to the growing research linking brain trauma to injuries sustained in sports has spread to Europe, with many of the same dynamics seen in recent years as the issue gained momentum in the United States. Medical experts are calling for change, some leagues and athletes are resisting in the name of tradition and spectator appeal, and lawmakers are inquiring about how officials are handling the possibility that their sports could be tied to long-term cognitive impairment.

Health-Conscious Eating Habits Can Become Destructive
The Spokesman-Review
She wasn't eating kale smoothies because she loved them, and she never thought becoming anorexic would make her prettier. Anna, a junior at a Spokane, Wash., high school, set out on a path toward an eating disorder by trying to eat healthier. Fueled partly by a desire to be a better athlete, influenced by a family member who emphasized a health-conscious, "very organic, very raw" diet, Anna traded junk food for a strict diet the summer before her sophomore year.

Checking for a Concussion With the Clock Running
The New York Times
For all the lore about baseball having no clock, the Washington Nationals sure had to beat one on March 31 when Bryce Harper sustained a possible concussion while sliding into second base. Harper's head snapped back violently when it collided with the shin of Mets second baseman Eric Young Jr. Harper lay on the ground for almost two minutes. He walked off the field slowly as the Nationals' athletic trainer steadied him by the waist. He sat down in the dugout.

The GW Hatchet
The day after Christmas, George Washington University women's basketball co-captain Megan Nipe fully tore the ACL in her right leg. The graduate student's season and career should have been over after five years without a postseason appearance. When head coach Jonathan Tsipis told his leading scorer about the extent of her injury, she stared him back in the face and spoke defiantly, saying, "Coach, I want to do this," Tsipis said.

Common Scholastic Sports Injuries: Men's Lacrosse
Philly.com
A 2007 study by Dick et al in the Journal of Athletic Training looked at injury rates for men's lacrosse using the NCAA injury surveillance system from 1988-2004. The results show a nearly four times higher rate of injury in games than in practice (12.58 versus 3.24 injuries per 1000 athlete-exposures). Pre-season practice injury rates were more than twice that of in-season. In-season game injury rates were almost twice as high as those in the postseason (12.60 versus 7.54 injuries per 1000 A-Es).

Vocal Cord Dysfunction Often Mistaken for Asthma in Athletes
Journal Star
Vocal Card Dysfunction is caused by the vocal cords closing instead of opening during inhalation. Symptoms of VCD include: wheezing or strider (high pitched wheezing sound), chronic cough or throat clearing, shortness of breath, throat tightness and intermittent hoarseness. This often occurs in athletes who have recently intensified their activity and training, but it can also occur for those initiating an exercise regimen.
