Overuse Injuries More Common As Kids Play Year-Round Sports
from The Press of Atlantic City    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Children today play year-round sports at younger ages, never giving their still-growing bodies a chance to recover. Consequently, doctors regularly see younger patients with overuse injuries that they rarely saw 10 years ago.

Athletic Performance and the Monthly Cycle
from The New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
What makes a female athlete different from a male athlete? As a group, female athletes, like their male counterparts, display coordination, strength, grace, speed, stamina and a bracing competitiveness. But there is a signal difference between adult men and women, on the field and off. Women menstruate. And menstruation, with its accompanying fluctuating levels of the female sex hormone estrogen, can have a considerable effect on how a woman’s body responds to the demands of exercise and competition, as a range of provocative new science makes clear.

How Extreme Heat Attacks The Body
from Los Angeles Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The moment you step into oppressive heat, the body senses life-threatening danger and starts fighting to keep things cool. The heart beats faster as it increases the flow of blood to the skin, trying to keep critical internal organs from overheating. But if your core temperature continues to rise, drastic measures kick in. Sweat starts dripping — then pouring — from your glands so evaporation can cool the body. More

Mike Leach Story Is One Of A Kind
from The Dallas Morning News via The Sacramento Bee    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail
No matter what you may think of Adam James or his father, Craig - and nothing at the time or since paints the James clan in a favorable light - a concussion should never be mocked. Whatever else he might be, James had a concussion confirmed by a doctor. Former Texas Tech head coach Mike Leach sent a bad message to his other players. Inadvertently or not, he also put his athletic trainer in a bad position. He's hardly the first head coach to do so, but he should be the last. More
