Register for Wednesday's Webinar on Case Studies as Teaching Tool
NATA
David Berry, PhD, ATC, is presenting "Case Studies: Safe Experimentation and Reflection Without Compromising Patient Care," at 11 a.m. CT on Wednesday, May 20. Case studies allow for "safe experimentation and reflection without concern for the impact on real organizations or clients." Students are afforded the opportunity utilize theories and experiences from their academic and clinical practice to make appropriate clinical decisions without any risk of harm to actual patients. Case studies allow students to then reflect on these experiences, determining the appropriateness of one’s actions and connecting the information they have learned about their profession. Therefore, the purpose of this session will be to examine the use of case studies as a means to improve students' learning as well as how to design and incorporate case studies into one’s educational programming.

Stem Cells Still Uncharted Territory in Sports
The Associated Press via Fort Wayne News-Sentinel
C.J. Nitkowski had nothing to lose in spring 2011. The rotator cuff in his left shoulder that he'd relied on during his decade as a major league pitcher was in tatters. He was 38 and his fastball traveled a Little League-worthy 50 mph. Surgery and the ensuing lengthy rehab would have killed his career. So Nitkowski paid $3,000 to have stem cells extracted from his waist, separated then injected back into his shoulder.

    Las Vegas Sun
    Children tend to be more active than adults, especially when it comes to team sports. And active competition can mean higher risk. Because children still are growing, they're susceptible to many overuse injuries. "The most important thing to remember is that kids are not little adults," said Dr. Jason Nielson, Adolescent Sports Medicine and Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeon for Children's Bone and Spine Surgery and Sunrise Children's Hospital.

    During Anna Cassell's career playing women's soccer at Northwestern University, she suffered three concussions in 15 months. At first, her third concussion didn't seem as severe as the earlier injuries, she said. But the symptoms lasted much longer. She spent eight months redshirting, trying to recover. The headaches and dizziness didn't completely go away for a year. She suffered from depression and anxiety. As a junior in college, she decided to walk away from the sport.
