PURPOSE To compare the mean number of head impacts between youth football players in practice and games between(More)
CONTEXT The use of sport-specific imagery during rehabilitation is sparse. Athletes who used imagery (either facilitative or debilitative) during injury rehabilitation were compared with injured athletes who did not use imagery. Return-to-practice anxiety in the groups was investigated also. OBJECTIVE To (1) explore debilitative images used during(More)
BACKGROUND Participation in lacrosse has grown at the collegiate levels. However, little research has examined the epidemiology of collegiate men's lacrosse injuries. This study describes the epidemiology of injuries in National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) men's lacrosse during the 2009/10-2014/15 academic years. METHODS Twenty-five men's(More)
CONTEXT Graduate assistant athletic trainers (GAATs) must balance the demands of clinical care and the academic load of graduate-level students. OBJECTIVE To examine burnout among GAATs with clinical assistantships at National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I institutions and to identify the personal and situational variables that are(More)
CONTEXT The success of any academic program, including athletic training, depends upon attracting and keeping quality students. Therefore, understanding potential recruits' perceptions of athletic training is important.
