Purdue Research Highlighted by Sports Illustrated
from Sports Illustrated    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Concussion research from Purdue University suggests that, while the NFL is going to unprecedented lengths to control the violent collisions that produce concussions, brain trauma in football may start much earlier, and much less conspicuously, with hits that never raise an eyebrow, much less a penalty flag. The findings of this research will be published in the Journal of Neurotrauma. More

Big 12 Suspends Nebraska LB for Helmet Hit
from CBS Sports    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Big 12 suspended Nebraska linebacker Eric Martin for their game against Missouri for a hit he put on Oklahoma State's Andrew Hudson. Martin blindsided Hudson with a block during Niles Paul's 100-yard kick return in the first quarter of last week's 51-41 Nebraska win. No penalty was called on Martin at the time. Commissioner Dan Beebe said if a subsequent review of the game reveals a flagrant personal foul officials did not call, the conference can impose sanctions. More

Do Cortisone Shots Actually Make Things Worse?
from The New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A major new review article, published recently in The Lancet, could revive and intensify the doubts about cortisone's efficacy. The review examined the results of nearly four dozen randomized trials, which enrolled thousands of people with tendon injuries, particularly tennis elbow, but also shoulder and Achilles-tendon pain. The reviewers determined that, for most of those who suffered from tennis elbow, cortisone injections did, as promised, bring fast and significant pain relief, compared with doing nothing or following a regimen of physical therapy.

FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
NATA has contacted the source of this article to thank them for the coverage and to remind about the correct terminology when referring to an athletic trainer.

His helmet lowered, Rutgers tackle Eric LeGrand suffered the type of catastrophic spinal injury that longtime athletic trainer Charles Thompson is surprised doesn't occur more frequently. "They think they're invincible in that helmet," said Thompson, head trainer at Princeton University and chair of the National Athletic Trainers' Association's College and University Athletic Trainers' Committee. "They think it's a video game. I guess they feel the need to put their head down and I don't think it's always because they are trying to hurt the other guy."

After a Crackdown, Few Crunching Hits
from The New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In the first weekend of games since the NFL cracked down on banned hits to the head and neck, there were no penalties for improper hits to the head and a few examples of players altering their play to conform to the kinder, slightly gentler NFL. Despite predictions that big pass plays would develop, there were no obvious examples Sunday. More
