The Risk of Non-Traumatic Myelopathy in Time Trial (TT) or Downhill (DH) Bike Position

Posted on

sports medicine journal impact factorThe time trial (TT) or downhill (DH) position (Figure 1) in cycling, which is different from general riding form, is used in time trial road races or triathlons to decrease air resistance and achieve faster speeds. In the TT or DH position, the rider’s neck is extended and his or her body is strained while racing, and some athletes develop neck pain or headache. Most cases of neck pain may be caused by fatigue due to sustained muscular stress, but there may be some risk of myelopathy in some cases.

Triathlons involve different distances, and there are also many different styles of bicycle; likewise, different athletes have different racing experiences and different body conditions. However, the TT position or DH position is common and many cyclists can use DH bars for faster speed.

Left Ventricular Function Improve after Bench Press: A Speckle Tracking and 3D Echocardiography Study

Posted on

sports medicine journal impact factorSpeckle tracking echo cardiography is introducing new hypotheses about the patho physiology of cardiovascular elite athlete. The Speckle Tracking allows us to evaluate the strain (S), the strain rate (SR), tissue velocities and displacement; being it less influenced by the angle of study, or by the load nor sex, nor they age or systolic blood pressure values. Ventricular remodeling that athlete produce is very variable, depending on the type of sport, age, gender, time or type of training, race or genetics. We consider that there are two types of remodeled, concentric and eccentric.

Evidence Based Practice in Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation: Easy, Pragmatic or Nonsense?

Posted on

The use of evidence to guide clinicians’ practice, known as Evidence Based Practice or EBP, has been an increasing area of interest worldwide.

Sports medicine and rehabilitation is one area where the application of EBP is most valuable. It covers the prevention, evaluation, management and rehabilitation of injuries brought about by participation in athletic and sports activities. Given this broad area of practice, it is very important that the best evidence is used to make informed decisions regarding client management.

Dynamic Valgus Instability of the Knee due to Chronic Medial Collateral Ligament Laxity as a Cause of Recurrent Patella Dislocation

Posted on

Recurrent patella dislocation can be caused by bony abnormalities, such as patella alta, increased tibial tubercle lateralization, trochlea dysplasia, excessive femoral neck anteversion and external tibial torsion. It can also be caused by soft tissue abnormalities such as a ruptured medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL) or a weak vastus medialis obliquus. It has been reported in the literature that acute lateral dislocation of the patella can be associated with proximal injury to the medial collateral ligament (MCL).

A 26-year-old male pro footballer presented to our institution with a history of recurrent patella dislocation. He had a previous attempted medial capsular plication and MPFL repair at another institution 3 years prior. His last dislocation was a month prior and occurred as a valgus force was applied to his knee when a player landed on him as he was tackled.

Deep Oscillation Therapy to treat Lymphederma cases

Vibration technology is used to apply intermittent electrostatic charges deep into the tissues. This would provide cyclic movement of the tissue so that the fluid would be pumped in. This therapy would not only help in healing the wound, but also helpful in curing fibromyalgia syndrome
