Tomorrow, New Webinar on Muscle Cramps
NATA
Kevin Miller, PhD, AT, ATC, will be presenting "Myths and Misconceptions about Muscle Cramps" at 11 a.m. CT on May 27. This webinar will discuss five popular myths and misconceptions about exercise-associated muscle cramping: (1) dehydration causes EAMC; (2) drinking sports drinks can replace all the electrolytes athletes lose during exercise; (3) eating mustard, bananas or drinking pickle juice can replace electrolyte losses effectively and thus help prevent or treat muscle cramping; (4) muscle cramps are entirely physiological; and (5) all athletes are susceptible to cramping. Recent experimental research will be incorporated and discussed in the presentation to help clinicians better develop evidence-based treatment and prevention strategies for muscle cramping.

    The Associated Press via The New York Times
    Serious injuries are occupational hazards for bull riders, but doctors, riders and researchers say the most pervasive injuries are concussions. The Professional Bull Riders' circuit provides a stable of doctors, requires helmets for anyone born after 1994 and insists concussed riders pass a test before getting back in the saddle. But in this era of concern about head injuries, the circuit's lead medical staffer says he hasn't seen a drop in the number of concussions despite the widespread use of helmets.

    Cleveland Clinic
    When it's time to buy a new football helmet, one of the most common questions parents and players ask is, "What's the best concussion-proof football helmet?"

    ACL Repair Improves, But Rehab Remains a Slow Go
    Troy Record
    Adegboyega Asanpaola never thought he'd be happy to run. This isn't a full-out sprint or anything. This is just a simple movement, slightly more than a jog. It's not a lot. A few months ago Asanpaola would have said it was barely more than walking. But now, the University at Albany sophomore football player is simply happy to be moving at all. So is the life of an ACL-rehabbing athlete.
