Progressive statistics for studies in sports medicine and exercise science.
TLDR
A more progressive resource for sample-based studies, meta-analyses, and case studies in sports medicine and exercise science is presented, and forthright advice on controversial or novel issues is offered.
Cumulative effects associated with recurrent concussion in collegiate football players: the NCAA Concussion Study.
TLDR
This study suggests thatPlayers with a history of previous concussions are more likely to have future concussive injuries than those with no history; 1 in 15 players with a concussion may have additional concussions in the same playing season; and previous concussion may be associated with slower recovery of neurological function.
Acute effects and recovery time following concussion in collegiate football players: the NCAA Concussion Study.
CONTEXT Lack of empirical data on recovery time following sport-related concussion hampers clinical decision making about return to play after injury. OBJECTIVE To prospectively measure immediate
The Landing Error Scoring System (LESS) Is a Valid and Reliable Clinical Assessment Tool of Jump-Landing Biomechanics
TLDR
The LESS is a valid and reliable tool for identifying potentially high-risk movement patterns during a jump-landing task and women had higher (worse) LESS scores than men.
Postural Stability and Neuropsychological Deficits After Concussion in Collegiate Athletes.
TLDR
Athletes with cerebral concussion demonstrated acute balance deficits, which are likely the result of not using information from the vestibular and visual systems effectively, and more research is necessary to determine the best neuropsychological test battery for assessing sport-related concussion.
Descriptive epidemiology of collegiate men's football injuries: National Collegiate Athletic Association Injury Surveillance System, 1988-1989 through 2003-2004.
TLDR
Football is a complex sport that requires a range of skills performed by athletes with a wide variety of body shapes and types, and appropriate injury surveillance procedures should be performed to determine the effect of the new equipment on injury rates.
Association between Recurrent Concussion and Late-Life Cognitive Impairment in Retired Professional Football Players
TLDR
The findings suggest that the onset of dementia-related syndromes may be initiated by repetitive cerebral concussions in professionalFootball players, and an earlier onset of Alzheimer's disease in the retirees than in the general American male population.
Recurrent concussion and risk of depression in retired professional football players.
TLDR
The findings suggest a possible link between recurrent sport-related concussion and increased risk of clinical depression and emphasize the importance of understanding potential neurological consequences of recurrent concussion.
Deployment and the use of mental health services among U.S. Army wives.
TLDR
Prolonged deployment was associated with more mental health diagnoses among U.S. Army wives, and these findings may have relevance for prevention and treatment efforts.
Understanding and Preventing Noncontact Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injuries
TLDR
A group of physicians, physical therapists, athletic trainers, biomechanists, epidemiologists, and other scientists interested in this area of research met to review current knowledge on risk factors associated with noncontact anterior cruciate ligament injuries.
