Can a Soccer Doctor Save NFL Players' Knees?
Sports Illustrated
We often think of ACL tears as fluke injuries, part of the dice roll that comes with playing in the NFL. As the narrative goes, the dreaded "pop" of the ruptured knee ligament afflicts elite athletes not for a lack of conditioning, but because it was simply time — a fait accompli that sends players like Eagles wideout Jeremy Maclin crumpling to the turf untouched during training camp. But Dr. Bert Mandelbaum says that's not the case.

Concussion Diagnostic Tool Goes From Hospital to Sidelines
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Allegheny Health Network rolled out a new iPad tool that it says will eventually help evaluate and manage concussions from the sideline to the doctor's office in 29 Western Pennsylvania counties. The C3 Logix system, developed by iComet Technologies in Cleveland, helps assess symptoms of mild traumatic brain injury, gauging balance, reaction time, memory and processing time, motor function and vision, in part by strapping an iPad to a patient's back and taking gyroscopic and motion data.

Stretching to Prevent Shoulder and Elbow Injuries
Philly.com
The shoulder is a complex body part made up of four different joints, each of which is vital for proper movement and performance. In my last post, we discussed the importance of scapula (shoulder blade) strength for overhead sports. Scapula strengthening and flexibility addresses movement at one of the four shoulder joints, the scapulothoracic joint, which is where the scapula and thorax (rib cage) meet.

Violent Hits Keep Coming, So Is NFL Changing Culture?
USA Today
Concussion researcher Kevin Guskiewicz was out back doing some yard work when his 13-year-old son Adam interrupted. "Dad, you've got to see this, this is crazy," Adam said as he beckoned his father inside to see a pair of helmet-to-helmet hits delivered by Washington safety Brandon Meriweather. One of them left Green Bay running back Eddie Lacy concussed. The other, on James Starks, who'd replaced Lacy, left Meriweather concussed. No penalty was called on either play.

Shoulder Maintenance Important to Swimmers at All Levels
Swim Swam
All swimmers at one time or another have gotten out of the pool after a long grueling race, or after the week of Christmas training with a throbbing or stabbing pain in their shoulder. College swimmers can seek attention from their Certified Athletic Trainer on campus, but many club swimmers shake it off and push through the pain. Pain is the body's way of telling you there is something wrong.

WSYR-TV
The Syracuse University football team earned a much-needed win Sept. 14, dominating Wagner and emerging from the game virtually injury free.

What Kids Should Know About Spinal Injuries in Sports
The Wall Street Journal
It could be a hard tackle in football, a cross-check in ice hockey or a fall off the top of a cheerleading pyramid. A new push is under way to raise awareness of a little-understood but dangerous risk to young athletes: injuries to the cervical spine, the highly vulnerable area between the first and seventh vertebrae that protects the spinal cord connecting the brain to the body.

The News & Advance
On Sept. 13, Damon Janes, a junior running back at Westfield/Brockton High School in western New York, celebrated a touchdown run, just like thousands of other high school athletes across the nation.
