Research May Help Prevent ACL Injuries in Women
Oregon State via KVAL-TV
Women are two to eight times more likely than men to suffer a debilitating tear of the anterior cruciate ligament in the knee, and a new study suggests that a combination of body type and landing techniques may be to blame. In two new studies recently published online in the Journal of Athletic Training, lead author Marc Norcross of Oregon State University documents how women who were asked to undergo a series of jumping exercises landed more often than men in a way associated with elevated risk of ACL injuries.

Dynamic Stretching for Injury Prevention, Improved Performance
Star City Sports
The No. 1 rule for a proper warm-up and stretching routine prior to any athletic performance is to never stretch or begin any activity when your muscles are cold. Always begin with some mild aerobic activity such as walking, biking or slow jogging for 5-to-10 minutes prior to stretching. The idea is to increase blood to the muscle tissue, which increases the muscle temperature and makes the collagen fibers more elastic.

Changing Attitudes About Sports Injuries
KJZZ-FM
AudioBriefThrow some dirt on it. That is what a lot of coaches and even some parents would say to young football players who looked like they had suffered a minor injury. Throwing up on the sidelines? Just part of the game. Shake out the cobwebs and get back on the field. But the attitude about injuries especially those that could signal a concussion or a brain issue is rapidly changing.
