Kinesio Tape: The Latest Must-Have Treatment for Sports Injuries
from The Guardian    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Athletes must be falling apart because, suddenly, everyone from Novak Djokovic to Mario Balotelli is taped up.

Pre-Season Fitness Not a Factor in Collegiate Sports Injury Risk
from HealthDay News via    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Levels of pre-season fitness do not predict how quickly college athletes may be injured during the season, but their gender and the type of sport they play do, a new study indicates. Canadian researchers assessed preseason fitness among athletes on six varsity teams and found that women had a shorter time to injury than men. Certain sports, such as volleyball, also had a much shorter time to injury than other sports, including hockey and basketball. More

Why Some Olympic Athletes Need to Gorge
from The New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Endurance athletes, unlike the rest of us, have the unusual problem of having to work hard to keep weight on.
