Stress Fractures in Athletes: Diagnosis and Management

 Orthopedics, Sports Medicine  Comments Off on Stress Fractures in Athletes: Diagnosis and Management
Oct 092019
 

Stress fractures are fatigue failures of bone caused by unusual or repeated stress on bone and are among the more common sports injuries encountered. Often going unreported or occasionally unnoticed, athletes run the risk of a more serious fracture if untreated. Stress Fractures in Athletes focuses on the presentation, evaluation and treatment of these injuries.

Divided into two sections, the first part provides in-depth description of the pathophysiology, epidemiology and biomechanics of stress fractures, as well as a discussion of classification, imaging and some general treatment concepts. The second part expands on treatment and takes each relevant anatomical region into consideration: lumbar spine, pelvis, femur, knee, tibia, upper and lower extremities, and the ribs and shoulder girdle. A chapter on insufficiency fractures, commonly associated with osteopenia and osteoporosis, is also included. As such, Stress Fractures in Athletes are a comprehensive resource for sports medicine practitioners, orthopedic surgeons, primary care physicians and physical therapists alike.

The masters athlete: understanding the role of sport and exercise in optimizing aging

 Sports Medicine  Comments Off on The masters athlete: understanding the role of sport and exercise in optimizing aging
Jun 262019
 

Masters athletes are those that continue to train and compete, typically at a high level, beyond the age of thirty-five and into middle and old age. As populations in the industrialized world get older and governments become increasingly keen to promote healthy aging and non-pharmacological interventions, the study of masters athletes enables us to better understand the benefits of, and motivations for, life-long involvement in physical activity. This is the first book to draw together current research on masters athletes. The Masters Athlete examines the evidence that cognitive skills, motor skills and physiological capabilities can be maintained at a high level with advancing age, and that age related decline is slowed in athletes that continue to train and compete in their later years. Including contributions from leading international experts in physiology, motor behaviour, psychology, gerontology and medicine, the book explores key issues such as: motivation for involvement in sport and physical activity across the lifespan evidence of lower incidence of cardiovascular disease, hypertension, and diabetes the maintenance of performance with age. Challenging conventional views of old age, and with important implications for policy and future research, this book is essential reading for students and practitioners working in sport and exercise science, aging and public health, human development, and related disciplines.

Sports Emergency Care: A Team Approach, Third Edition

 Emergency, Sports Medicine  Comments Off on Sports Emergency Care: A Team Approach, Third Edition
May 222019
 


by Robb Rehberg PhD ATC CSCS NREMT CF (Author), Jeff G. Konin PhD ATC PT FACSM (Author)

For more than a decade, Sports Emergency Care: A Team Approach has filled a void in athletic training education on the subject of emergency care. Now, this updated Third Edition continues to pave the way to prepare athletic training students beyond traditional first aid training as well as providing specific information on emergency situations in sports for emergency medical services (EMS) professionals.

In this updated Third Edition, Dr. Robb S. Rehberg and Dr. Jeff G. Konin, along with their 13 contributors, have created a resource that can be used in athletic training education programs as a core text in a sports emergency care course; a supplemental text in several courses that address immediate care within an athletic training education curriculum; and it can be used by EMS educators in developing continuing education programs for prehospital providers.

Some of the topics included in the Third Edition:
Assessment of Sports Emergencies
Cardiovascular Emergencies
Management of Traumatic Brain Injury
Fractures and Soft Tissue Injuries
Managing Mental Health Emergencies
Care of Athletes with Disabilities
Emergencies in Sports for the Aging Athlete

Regardless of discipline, it is important for all health care providers caring for ill or injured athletes to be knowledgeable and proficient in managing sports emergencies. This ability can only be achieved through preparation and practice, and Sports Emergency Care: A Team Approach, Third Edition continues to be a groundbreaking text that gives access to the essential resources health care providers need to address sports emergencies. This includes but is not limited to athletic trainers, emergency medical technicians and paramedics, and physicians.

From the Foreword:
“Emergencies can occur anytime and anywhere in sports, including at a practice or on the bus traveling to an event. After nearly 40 years as a professional sports athletic trainer, these emergency moments give me pause. Preparation is the key to successful outcomes in all emergencies.”

Assessments for Sport and Athletic Performance

 Sports Medicine  Comments Off on Assessments for Sport and Athletic Performance

by David H., Ph.D. Fukuda (Author)

Many scientific sport assessment resources are difficult to understand, can be time consuming to implement, and provide data that are difficult to analyze. Assessments for Sport and Athletic Performance effectively solves those problems in this practical, user-friendly guide to performance-based evaluation.

A perfect resource for coaches and fitness professionals, Assessments for Sport and Athletic Performance is a streamlined guide through the process of identifying appropriate tests for individuals or teams, making use of common low-cost equipment to administer the tests, interpreting data, adjusting training programs based on the results, and continually monitoring training.

For each assessment, this text walks you through a step-by-step process and includes a script of directions to give the athlete or client being tested to ensure the tests are performed correctly. You’ll find a variety of protocols that do not require complicated equipment and can be conveniently conducted in your normal training environment. You’ll be able to assess your athletes or clients in the following areas:

• Anthropometrics and body composition

• Flexibility and balance

• Agility and sprinting

• Power

• Muscular strength and endurance

• Cardiorespiratory fitness

In addition, each assessment is accompanied by normative data to set baseline evaluations and to monitor progress over time. As a refreshing break from the typical complex tables, the normative data are displayed in modern, simplified figures that make it easy to quickly evaluate test results.

Assessments for Sport and Athletic Performance takes the guesswork out of determining which tests to administer and what equipment is needed. It will equip you with the tools needed to help your athletes and clients achieve even greater success.

CE exam available! For certified professionals, a companion continuing education exam can be completed after reading this book. Assessments for Sport and Athletic Performance Online CE Exam may be purchased separately or as part of the Assessments for Sport and Athletic Performance With CE Exam package that includes both the book and the exam
