Schools Adopt Policy for Athletic Head Injuries
from Chicago Tribune    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on
LinkedinE-mail article
The Sports Legacy Institution concussion clinic coincided with a Chicago-area school district's new protocol for dealing with student athletes suffering from a concussion or other head injury. As drafted by the athletic trainers of the district's six high schools, the guidelines are based on research in the study of degenerative brain conditions caused by sports-related brain trauma, including chronic traumatic encephalopathy. Developed by Dr. Robert Cantu, a neurosurgery professor at Boston University School of Medicine, the institute's concussion clinics are led by Christopher Nowinski, a former All-Ivy Harvard football player who retired as a wrestler with World Wrestling Entertainment after suffering a debilitating kick to the head — his fourth concussion in three years.  More

Do Sport Bars and Gels Provide the Energy of Sports Drinks?
from The New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
According to a study published this spring in the journal Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise, people who exercise for more than about two hours at a time can benefit from sports drinks. Most of us know that, of course. The carbohydrates in the drinks provide immediate fuel, which allows our bodies to avoid dipping into its own energy stores, meaning that, theoretically, you can exercise longer or more intensively before running out of fuel. But few people, in practice, can or will drink enough calories during a long workout to benefit significantly, the study authors suggest.  More

Goal! Ouch! How Boys' and Girls' Injuries Differ
from The Wall Street Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
It's nearly impossible to tune into the World Cup and not cringe at the knocked heads and kicks to the chest. Concussions, knee injuries and ankle sprains are common in kids' soccer, too, though the sport is still safer than kids' football and rugby. What's more, girls and boys suffer different types of injuries. Girls are more prone to heat illness and concussions. And in a new study that has puzzled researchers, girls are more likely to tear a ligament on their supporting leg, whereas boys are more prone to injure their dominant leg.  More
