Injuries in Competitive Figure Skaters.
Most injuries were from overuse, but there were few serious injuries for the large number of hours they spent training, and the incidence of injury compares favorably with other sports. Expand
Injuries in Elite Figure Skaters.
In brief: A questionnaire was used to examine the number, nature, and etiology of injuries to Canadian nationally ranked figure skaters over a one-year period and to measure the consequent loss ofExpand
Training, Experience, and Medical History of Pairs Skaters.
The results showed that males tended to have pain in the shoulders, wrists, and back, while females hadPain in the hips and feet, which could be related to the different demands on males and females when performing lifts and throws. Expand

Of particular importance is the fact that almost all overuse injuries related to this sport respond to nonoperative treatment, which consists primarily of altering the skating boot. Expand
Injuries in elite pair skaters and ice dancers
Changes in boot design and the training for lifting maneuvers should be initiated and studied to attempt to reduce the unacceptably high injury rate among elite pair skaters and ice dancers. Expand
Load‐displacement behavior of sacroiliac joints
We measured the load‐displacement behavior of both single and paired sacroiliac (SI) joints in fresh cadaver specimens obtained from eight adults between the ages of 59 and 74 years. With both iliaExpand
The effects of torsion on the lumbar intervertebral joints: the role of torsion in the production of disc degeneration.
It was found that injury to the joint could be produced by slowly applied rotation in amounts within the range of normal lumbar movement, and any impairment of the function of the joints between the articular processes may result in a higher risk of disc degeneration. Expand
The Relevance of Torsion to the Mechanical Derangement of the Lumbar Spine
The results show that torsion of the lumbar spine is resisted primarily by the apophyseal joint that is in compression, although the intervertebral disc does play a major role. Expand
Editorial Comment
Selçuki et al. have retrospectively reviewed 77 patients with a tethered spinal cord syndrome. There were 17 patients (“primary tethered cord”) in whom the conus was at a normal level and the filumExpand
The Fortin finger test: an indicator of sacroiliac pain.
Results indicate that positive findings of the Fortin finger test, a simple diagnostic measure, successfully identifies patients with sacroiliac joint dysfunction. Expand
