#1
Robert W Cox, Rodrigo E Martinez, Russell T Baker, Lindsay W Larkins
CONTEXT: Range of motion (ROM) is a component of a physical exam used in the diagnostic and rehabilitative process. Following ankle injury and/or during research, it is common to measure plantarflexion with a universal goniometer. The ease and availability of digital inclinometers created as applications for smartphones, has led to an increase in using this method of ROM assessment. Smartphone applications have been validated as alternatives to inclinometer measurements in the knee; however, this application has not been validated for plantarflexion in the ankle...

Jahan Heidari, Johanna Belz, Monika Hasenbring, Jens Kleinert, Claudia Levenig, Michael Kellmann
Context - Explanatory approaches for back pain (BP) in athletes focus on biomechanical factors while neglecting psychological perspectives. Psychological factors have gained importance in the prediction of injuries in athletes and BP in the general population, with stress and recovery emerging as central risk factors. However, scarce evidence exists regarding the role of these aspects for the prevalent burden of back pain (BP). Objective - To investigate the association between stress and recovery parameters and the presence of BP...

Brett S Pexa, Eric D Ryan, Elizabeth E Hibberd, Elizabeth Teel, Terri Jo Rucinski, Joseph B Myers
CONTEXT: Following a baseball pitching bout, changes can occur to glenohumeral range of motion that could be linked to injury. These effects are in part due to the posterior shoulder's eccentric muscle activity, which can disrupt muscle contractile elements and lead to changes in muscle cross sectional area (CSA), as measured by ultrasound. OBJECTIVE: To assess changes in muscle CSA, and range of motion immediately before and after pitching, and days 1-5 following pitching...

#9
Richard A Brindle, D David Ebaugh, Clare E Milner
CONTEXT: Side-lying hip abductor strength tests are commonly used to evaluate muscle strength. In a 'break' test the tester applies sufficient force to lower the limb to the table while the patient resists. The peak force is postulated to occur while the leg is lowering, thus representing the participant's eccentric muscle strength. However, it is unclear whether peak force occurs before or after the leg begins to lower. OBJECTIVES: To determine intra-rater reliability and construct validity of a hip abductor eccentric strength test...

André Bateman, Kai A D Morgan
CONTEXT: Athletes at the highest levels appear to be most affected by sport-related injuries and suffer both physiologically and psychologically. Established models of psychological responses to injury however do not offer a comprehensive explanation based on Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), though some studies suggest that injuries may be interpreted as traumatic. Studies also suggest that perceived self-efficacy may be a mediator of PTSD development. OBJECTIVE: This study examines the psychological sequelae experienced by high-level athletes as a result of sport related injuries based on a PTSD-Self-Efficacy framework...
