N.F.L. Issues New Guidelines on Concussions
from The New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The National Football League on Dec. 2 announced that it would impose its most stringent rules to date on managing concussions, requiring players who exhibit any significant sign of concussion to be removed from a game or practice and be barred from returning the same day. The league has maintained, despite widespread criticism, that it was safe to allow players to return to the field as soon as their symptoms were gone -- even in the same game in which the injury occurred. It has not been uncommon for players to return, either after passing a sideline test or by not revealing their symptoms. More

The International Association of Athletics Federations, the world governing body for track and field, recently described stress fractures, with a kind of grim resignation, as "the curse of athletes." But studies published in the December issue of the journal Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise offer hope that, at least for runners, simple alterations in their stride or in the strength of their legs might reduce their risk for the most common type of stress fracture.

Thera-Band®FlexBar Golfer's Elbow Exercise Study
Research found that the "Tyler Twist," a novel exercise using the Thera-Band® FlexBar® , is effective at reducing pain associated with chronic lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow). In response to many requests for an exercise for golfer’s elbow, Tim Tyler, PT, ATC, invented the "reverse Tyler twist," believing it may have similar results for medial epicondylitis. A new study, using the FlexBar and emphasizing eccentric contraction of the wrist flexors and pronators, is planned.  800-321-2135.
