The common variance between the agility tests was 45%, indicating that they represented relatively independent skills. There was a large correlation between RS and defending agility (r = 0.625, p = 0.004), and a very large correlation with attacking agility (r = 0.731, p < 0.001). Defending and attacking agility have different characteristics, possibly related to the footwork, physical, and cognitive demands of each. Nonetheless, RS seems to be important for agility, especially for attacking agility. © 2016 National Strength and Conditioning Association.]]> Wed 24 May 2017 13:45:10 AEST ]]> Clinical improvements are not explained by changes in tendon structure on ultrasound tissue characterization after an exercise program for patellar tendinopathy Wed 24 Apr 2019 15:09:27 AEST ]]> Facebook use and its relationship with sport anxiety Wed 20 Sep 2017 16:34:23 AEST ]]> Subsequent injuries are more common than injury recurrences : An analysis of 1 season of prospectively collected injuries in professional Australian football 1 injury over a playing season. However, there is currently little high-quality epidemiological evidence about the risk of, and relationships between, multiple and subsequent injuries. PURPOSE: To describe the subsequent injuries sustained by Australian Football League (AFL) players over 1 season, including their most common injury diagnoses. STUDY DESIGN: Cohort study; Level of evidence, 3. METHODS: Within-player linked injury data on all date-ordered match-loss injuries sustained by AFL players during 1 full season were obtained. The total number of injuries per player was determined, and in those with >1 injury, the Subsequent Injury Classification (SIC) model was used to code all subsequent injuries based on their Orchard Sports Injury Classification System (OSICS) codes and the dates of injury. RESULTS: There were 860 newly recorded injuries in 543 players; 247 players (45.5%) sustained >/=1 subsequent injuries after an earlier injury, with 317 subsequent injuries (36.9% of all injuries) recorded overall. A subsequent injury generally occurred to a different body region and was therefore superficially unrelated to an index injury. However, 32.2% of all subsequent injuries were related to a previous injury in the same season. Hamstring injuries were the most common subsequent injury. The mean time between injuries decreased with an increasing number of subsequent injuries. CONCLUSION: When relationships between injuries are taken into account, there is a high level of subsequent (and multiple) injuries leading to missed games in an elite athlete group.]]> Wed 20 Sep 2017 16:15:14 AEST ]]> Strength adaptation to squat exercise is different between Caucasian and South Asian novice exercisers Wed 20 Sep 2017 15:23:16 AEST ]]> Epidemiology of facial injuries in sport Wed 20 Sep 2017 10:48:35 AEST ]]> Prevention of sport related facial injuries Wed 20 Sep 2017 10:47:30 AEST ]]> Health and economic burden of running-related injuries in Dutch trailrunners : A prospective cohort study Wed 13 Nov 2019 15:08:50 AEDT ]]> Incidence, aetiology and prevention of musculoskeletal injuries in volleyball : A systematic review of the literature Wed 08 Nov 2017 07:24:23 AEDT ]]> Intervention strategies used in sport injury prevention studies : A systematic review identifying studies applying the Haddon matrix Wed 08 Nov 2017 07:00:08 AEDT ]]> 'In a blink of an eye your life can change ' : Experiences of players sustaining a rugby-related acute spinal cord injury Wed 06 Nov 2019 12:27:17 AEDT ]]> Exercise interventions for the prevention and treatment of groin pain and injury in athletes : A critical and systematic review Tue 31 Oct 2017 12:58:12 AEDT ]]> The incidence, prevalence, nature, severity and mechanisms of injury in elite female cricketers : A prospective cohort study Tue 29 Oct 2019 12:50:07 AEDT ]]> Injuries in field hockey players : A systematic review Tue 29 May 2018 11:50:59 AEST ]]> Left ventricular speckle tracking-derived cardiac strain and cardiac twist mechanics in athletes : A systematic review and meta-analysis of controlled studies Tue 26 Mar 2019 15:06:07 AEDT ]]> Commercial golf glove effects on golf performance and forearm muscle activity Tue 26 Mar 2019 14:50:46 AEDT ]]> Electromyographic analyses of the erector spinae muscles during golf swings using four different clubs 0.05).

SCAT3 was administered at baseline (B) and post-game (PG). Results: 1394 head acceleration events (HEA) >10 g were measured. Mean and median HEA PLA were recorded as 15.2 g (SD = 9.2, range = 10.0–115.8) and 12.4 g (IQR = 11.0–15.6) respectively. No significant difference in median HEA PLA (g) was detected across gender (p = 0.55), however, more HEAs were recorded in males (p = 0.03). A greater number (p = 0.004) and severity (p < 0.001) of symptoms were reported PG than at B. No significant association between number of HEA or median PLA, and SCAT3 change scores (p > 0.05 for all), was identified for either gender. Conclusions: Increase in symptom severity post game was not associated with X2 measured HEA. Males sustained more HEA, however HEA PLA magnitude did not differ across gender.

Methods: Electronic databases were searched from inception to January 2018 before conducting a random-effects meta-analysis to calculate pooled differences in means, effect size and 95% confidence intervals (CIs). Study heterogeneity was reported using Cochran’s Q and I2 statistic. Results: Overall, 32 studies (644 athletes; 582 controls) were included. Athletes had greater LV end-diastolic diameter (3.65 mm, 95% CI 2.66–4.64), interventricular septal thickness (1.23 mm, 95% CI 0.85–1.60), posterior wall thickness (1.20 mm, 95% CI 0.83–1.56), LV mass (72 g, 95% CI 46–98), LV mass index (28.17 g·m2, 95% CI 19.84–36.49) and stroke volume (13.59 mL, 95% CI 7.20–19.98) (all p < 0.01). Athletes had superior global diastolic function [ratio of early (E) to late (A) mitral inflow velocity (E/A) 0.18, 95% CI 0.13–0.24, p < 0.01; ratio of early (e′) to late (a′) diastolic annular tissue velocity (e′/a′) 0.23, 95% CI 0.06–0.40, p = 0.01], lower A (−8.20 cm·s−1, 95% CI −11.90 to −4.51, p < 0.01) and a′ (−0.72 cm·s−1, 95% CI −1.31 to −0.12, p = 0.02), and more rapid e′ (0.96 cm·s−1, 95% CI 0.05–1.86, p = 0.04). Meta-regression for chronological age identified that athlete–control differences, in the main, are maintained during advancing age. Conclusions: Athletic older men have larger cardiac dimensions and enjoy more favourable cardiac function than healthy, non-athletic counterparts. Notably, the athlete groups maintain these effects during chronological ageing. © 2018, The Author(s).]]> Thu 12 Sep 2019 16:01:58 AEST ]]> Abrasion injuries on artificial turf : A systematic review Thu 10 Oct 2019 14:06:01 AEDT ]]> Sport for adults aged 50+years : Participation benefits and barriers Thu 08 Aug 2019 11:14:02 AEST ]]> A framework for the etiology of running-related injuries Thu 07 Dec 2017 14:09:34 AEDT ]]> How much is enough in rehabilitation?

Return to running within 4 days increased subsequent injury risk (3–4 days [reference: 5–6 days]: HR 25.88, 95%CI 2.06–324.4). Attaining moderate-high sprint distance (427–710 m) was protective against subsequent injury (154–426 m: [reference: 427–710 m]: HR 37.41, 95%CI 2.70–518.64). Conclusions: Training load monitoring can inform player rehabilitation programs. Higher rehabilitation training loads delayed RTP; however, moderate-high sprint running loads can protect against subsequent injury.
