Los Angeles Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Many parents encourage their kids to take part in team sports, thinking they'll get their recommended daily activity. But a new study suggests that children who play sports might not get enough daily exercise, and teens may get even less.

The study, released today in the journal Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine, looked at how much exercise 200 kids age 7 to 14 got while playing team soccer, baseball or softball. The children wore accelerometers that tracked movement and intensity during team practice time, which ranged from 40 to 130 minutes for soccer and 35 to 217 minutes for baseball and softball.

Researchers Use Patient's Own Blood to Treat Hamstring Injury
Science Daily    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Researchers in London say they have found an effective two-part treatment for microtears in the hamstring: injections of the patient's own blood and a steroid along with "dry-needling," in which repeated needle punctures cause controlled internal bleeding in the injured area. Results of the study were presented at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA).

"By injecting the patient's own blood where it is needed at the site of a damaged tendon, we help the patient heal themselves," said lead researcher Waseem A. Bashir, M.D., a radiologist at Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital and Ealing Hospital in London. "Blood contains many growth factors, and the injections have been shown to promote faster healing of certain injuries."
