New Consensus Statement Addresses Mental Health of College Athletes
NATA
Last week, leading health care professionals released inter-association task force recommendations on "Developing a Plan to Recognize and Refer Student Athletes with Psychological Concerns at the College Level." The new document was released at a press event and published in the September-October 2013 issue of the Journal of Athletic Training, NATA's scientific publication. The program was convened by NATA and took place at the National Collegiate Athletic Association in Indianapolis. This is believed to be the first time a cross section of interdisciplinary professions has collaborated on this type of document.

NATA, NCAA and Others Announce Mental Health Recommendations
NCAA.org
Will Heininger suffered in silence. The 2011 Michigan graduate was a defensive tackle on the school's football team and a four-time Academic All-Big Ten winner. Despite playing Division I football at a storied program and thriving at one of the nation's most prestigious public universities, Heininger quietly battled depression. He hid the affliction from his teammates, friends and coaches. His story is not uncommon. Roughly one in five American youths suffers from some sort of mental health disorder.

Sports-Related Brain Injuries Landing More Kids in ERs
ABC News
A small study from Cincinnati Children's Hospital is likely to get the attention of doctors and may panic some parents, given recent worry over head injuries sustained in sports such as football, soccer and cheerleading. In the new study, published in the journal Pediatrics, researchers found a 92 percent increase in pediatric visits to their hospital emergency room for sports-related traumatic brain injury from 2002 to 2011.

One-Sport Girls Risk More Injury, Weight Gain
Live Science
This September, millions of children are back in school and participating in their favorite sports, but young girls who focus on only one sport should consider signing up for more. Some parents encourage their children to choose only one sport in hopes of gaining an edge on the competition and improving the chances of future success. You could call it the "Tiger Woods Syndrome" — young athletes feel like they have to zero-in on one single sport and play it year round.

Why Runners Don't Get Knee Arthritis
The New York Times
One of the most entrenched beliefs about running, at least among nonrunners, is that it causes arthritis and ruins knees. But a nifty new study finds that this idea is a myth and distance running is unlikely to contribute to the development of arthritis, precisely and paradoxically because it involves so much running. It's easy to understand, of course, why running is thought to harm the knee joint, since with every stride, ballistic forces move through a runner's knee.

Athletic Training Program at Nicholls State Gives Students Hands-On Experience
The Nicholls Worth
The Nicholls State athletic department would find itself in a state of disarray without the skilled athletic training staff's expertise in the prevention and treatment of student athletes' injuries. Sports-related injuries are inevitable in college athletics. The Colonels football team sees more frequent and serious injuries than any sport on campus due to the nature of the game. Graduate Assistant Athletic Trainer Kyle Wilson has seen his fair share of minor and major injuries.

North Jersey Athletic Trainers Discuss Benefit of Dynamic Warm-ups
NorthJersey.com
Not too long ago athletes warmed up before a game by simply stretching. They would touch their toes, put their arms over their head, and do various other activities to prepare their body. Those days are over though, as a new age of "dynamic warm-ups" has come into play. Now, before a game, players will be seen running across the field doing butt-kickers, high knees and reverse lunges.
