A retrospective case-control analysis of 2002 running injuries
TLDR
Various risk factors were shown to be positively associated with a risk for, or protection from, specific injuries, and future research should include a non-injured control group and a more precise measure of weekly running distance and running experience to validate these results.
A prospective study of running injuries: the Vancouver Sun Run “In Training” clinics
TLDR
Although age, BMI, running frequency, and running shoe age were associated with injury, these results do not take into account an adequate measure of exposure time to injury, running experience, or previous injury and should thus be viewed accordingly.
Achilles tendinitis and peritendinitis: Etiology and treatment
TLDR
The authors speculate that runners are susceptible to Achilles tendinitis with peritendinitis due to micro- trauma produced by the eccentric loading of fatigued muscle, excess pronation producing whipping action of the Achilles tendon, and/or vascular blanching.
Stress fractures in athletes
TLDR
Using bone scan- positive stress fractures for diagnosis indicates that tarsal stress fractures are much more common than previously realized and time to diagnosis and recovery is site-dependent.
A Survey of Overuse Running Injuries.
TLDR
Almost 60% of the patients were men, but women under age 30 had the greatest risk of overuse running injuries, and patellofemoral pain syndrome was the most common injury.
A survey of injuries to the anterior cruciate ligament of the knee in female basketball players.
TLDR
This study surveyed 76 female basketball-related injuries that occurred during a 30-month period at the B.C. Sports Medicine Clinic and possible etiological factors postulated included player position, joint laxity, weak quadriceps mechanism, and a possible hormonal basis.
A randomised clinical trial of the efficacy of drop squats or leg extension/leg curl exercises to treat clinically diagnosed jumper's knee in athletes: pilot study
TLDR
Progressive drop squats and leg extension/curl exercises can reduce the pain of jumper's knee in a 12 week period and permit a high proportion of patients to return to sport.
Plantar fasciitis: a retrospective analysis of 267 cases
TLDR
A retrospective case review of patients seen by attending physicians from 1998–2000 to gain a better understanding of the anthropometric, biomechanical and treatment statistics for a diversified population affected with plantar fasciitis found over half (54·7%) of patients with plantarsitis were reported as having excessive pronation.
Iliotibial tract friction syndrome in athletes.
TLDR
The important role of proper training methods and orthotic foot control in the prevention and care of ITFS is illustrated, with Evaluation of 48 patients on follow-up showed this treatment protocol to have a 94% success rate.
