Brain Docs Raise Concussion Alarm For Kids' Sports
from The Associated Press via NPR    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The risk of concussions from football and some other sports is so serious that a qualified athletic trainer should always be on the field — at adult and children's games, and even at practice, a major doctors group said. Following that advice from the American Academy of Neurology would be a dramatic change for youth sports programs, most of which don't have certified athletic trainers. More

Being Physically Fit May Cut Risk of Colds
from WebMD    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
People who are physically fit and active catch fewer colds, and the colds they do get are milder. That's the takeaway message of a new study by a team of scientists who examined 12 weeks worth of data on 1,002 adults, aged 18 to 85, who reported on their perceived fitness and their lifestyle and dietary habits.

Cause of Knee Pain Points Toward Relief
from San Diego Union Tribune    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Whether caused by a sports injury or simple wear and tear, knee pain is among the most common reasons people seek medical care. Every year, knee pain sends some 12 million U.S. patients to the doctor. Knee pain has many causes, including long-term overuse, sudden injuries or underlying degenerative conditions.

Studies Offer NFL Window Into Addressing Concussions
from The Baltimore Sun    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
At an NFL summit meeting on concussions three years ago, Dr. Julian Bailes made an extraordinary proposal: Take the three-point stance out of the game, and take the head out of the sport. He received no support for his ideas. Now, in a rush to make up for lost time on the concussion front, the NFL is listening to lots of suggestions these days about how to make its game safer and purge itself of violent helmet-to-helmet collisions. Those suggestions include the elimination of the three-point stance, modifications of ever-dangerous special teams plays, banning helmets in practice, and more. More

Staten Island, NY, Public School Baseball
Teams To Institute New Pitch Count Rule

from Staten Island Advance    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Public Schools Athletic League in Staten Island, N.Y., has announced that, beginning in the spring 2011 season, a pitch count limit will be enforced for all high school pitchers on varsity and junior varsity teams. Under the new rule, no varsity pitcher will be allowed to throw more than 105 pitches per game. Junior varsity pitchers will be limited to 90 per game. Much like Little League play, however, if the pitch limit is reached in the middle of an at-bat, the pitcher will be allowed to finish the batter before being removed from the game. More

The Dark Art of Statistical Deception
from The New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Will sprinters one day break the sound barrier? Do Olympic athletes win more medals if they wear red? And can a simple formula predict happiness? While those questions may sound absurd, various studies have found a way to prove them true through statistical manipulation of numbers and data. The tendency of academics, politicians and pundits to generate such numerical falsehoods from data — and the tendency of the public to believe the results — is a phenomenon cleverly explored in a new book by an NYU researcher.

Study: Strength Training For Children Works Safely
from Reuters    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Regular workouts with free weights or exercise machines can help children and teenagers boost their muscle strength, in some cases by as much as 40 percent, according to a German review of recent studies. Although strength training was long thought to pose an injury risk for school-age children and adolescents, studies in recent years have shown there is actually no greater risk than with other types of exercise or sports — and in some cases, less.
