AOASM NEWS

Greetings from Erie, Pennsylvania!
AOASM


Dr. Namey

Over the last three months we have been busy with training three new Sports Medicine Fellows, conducted over 300 pre participation physicals for Division I, II and our professional team responsibilities with the Erie Otters hockey team and the Erie BayHawks basketball team. We have the added benefit of great consultative orthopedic surgeons who only get involved when we ask them to; Great Certified Athletic Trainers who are our eyes and ears in the training room but know their limitations when medical cases arise or injuries involve the heart, lungs, head or neck.

Reductions in intraocular pressure after acute aerobic exercise: A meta-analysis
Clinical Journal of Sports Medicine
Aerobic exercise is known to reduce elevated intraocular pressure (IOP), a primary risk factor for a disease of the eye known as primary open-angle glaucoma. Given the disparate nature of experimental protocols across the literature, an analysis of studies on the effect of acute aerobic exercise on IOP is necessary to verify the influence of participant characteristics, exercise intensity and duration.

Current physical activity guidelines for health are insufficient to mitigate long-term weight gain: More data in the fitness versus fatness debate
British Journal of Sports Medicine
To promote and maintain health, all adults are recommended to do moderate-intensity aerobic activity a minimum of 30 minutes on 5 days, or vigorous-intensity activity of 20 minutes on 3 days, each week. Whether these levels prevent long-term weight gain is uncertain. The objective of this study was to assess the relationship between physical activity and long-term weight gain.

Show, don't tell: The PT's guide to visuals on social media
By Charlotte Bohnett
In college, I took my fair share of creative-writing courses, and every instructor's favorite prescription for effective writing was, "Show, don't tell." Now, as I examine the evolution of social media, those words ring even truer than they did when I was scribbling my way through sonnet stanzas. Looking at the success of Pinterest, YouTube and Instagram, it's clear the age of visual social media is upon us. Because your rehab therapy practice has social media, you're ready to jump in and start attaching images to everything you share. But there's an art to showing instead of telling.

Study: 1 in 27 head injuries reported
Outside the Lines
Despite years of education and growing public awareness about head injuries, college football players report having six suspected concussions and 21 so-called "dings" for every diagnosed concussion, with offensive linemen being the least forthcoming to trainers and team personnel, a new study by Harvard University and Boston University researchers has found. The 27-to-1 ratio underscores the challenges that remain in protecting players in a sport that long has fostered an ethos of playing through injury, especially brain trauma.

Should passive physical agents be eliminated under new APTA guidelines?
By Heidi Dawson
New guidelines for physical therapists and their patients were published recently under the "Choosing Wisely" campaign in partnership with the American Physical Therapy Association. The campaign aims to spark conversations between therapists and their patients by providing public guidelines for treatment protocols. The point that seems to have had the biggest response from therapists, and some patients, is the first on the list: "Don't employ passive physical agents except when necessary to facilitate participation in an active treatment program."

College players often don't tell of hits to head
The New York Times
The controversy over why Michigan quarterback Shane Morris was allowed to return to the field with a “probable mild concussion” from a violent hit highlighted a communications breakdown on the Wolverines’ sideline. But it also pointed to the inconsistent ways in which coaches and players acknowledge hits to the head — if they acknowledge them at all.

Study: ACL tear won't keep most college athletes from returning to play
HealthyDay News
It's a debilitating injury, but an ACL tear typically doesn't mean the end of a college athlete's career, a new study finds. The research suggests that the risk for a reinjury of the knee's anterior cruciate ligament actually goes down as athletes mature from high school into their college years.
