CONTEXT: In many US high schools, the athletic trainer (AT) has the responsibility to identify and manage athletes with concussions. Although the availability of ATs varies a great deal among schools, how the level of AT availability in high schools affects the reported incidence and management of sport-related concussions (SRCs) is unknown. OBJECTIVE: To determine how the presence of an AT affects the reporting and management of SRCs. DESIGN: Prospective cohort study...

Tao Li, Marc F Norcross, Samuel T Johnson, Michael C Koester
CONTEXT: Hiring athletic trainers (ATs) in high schools may lower medical payments by third-party payers such as Medicaid or commercial insurers by reducing injury risks or may increase medical payments due to more referrals to other health care providers. To date, evidence is lacking on the actual financial effect of high school ATs based on an analysis of medical claims. OBJECTIVE: To assess the overall cost-benefit of hiring ATs in Oregon high schools based on medical claims data across years...

Eric Post, Andrew P Winterstein, Scott J Hetzel, Blaire Lutes, Timothy A McGuine
CONTEXT: Secondary schools have made significant progress in providing athletic trainer (AT) coverage to their student-athletes, but the levels of access at schools with ATs may vary widely. Socioeconomic disparities in medical coverage and access have been noted in other health care fields, but such disparities in the level of access to AT services have not been thoroughly examined. OBJECTIVE: To determine if (1) access to AT services or (2) the level of access (AT hours per week and athletes per AT hour) differed based on the socioeconomic characteristics of secondary schools...

CONTEXT: Recent recommendations have emphasized return-to-learn (RTL) protocols to aid athletes in recovery from sport-related concussion (SRC) but have been based primarily on anecdotal evidence. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the RTL practices of certified athletic trainers (ATs) after an SRC. DESIGN: Cross-sectional study. SETTING: Online survey. PATIENTS OR OTHER PARTICIPANTS: A total of 1083 individuals (27%) from a random sample of 4000 ATs in the National Athletic Trainers' Association membership database completed an electronic survey...

Kristen L Kucera, Dustin W Currie, Erin Wasserman, Zachary Y Kerr, Leah Cox Thomas, Stephen Paul, R Dawn Comstock
CONTEXT: Although sport-related internal organ injuries among athletes are relatively infrequent, combining data sources enables a more comprehensive examination of their incidence. OBJECTIVE: To describe the incidence and characteristics of sport-related internal organ injuries due to direct-contact mechanisms among high school (HS) and collegiate sports from 2005-2006 through 2014-2015. DESIGN: Descriptive epidemiology study. SETTING: United States HS and collegiate sports data from 3 national sports injury-surveillance systems: High School Reporting Information Online (HS RIO), the National Collegiate Athletic Association Injury Surveillance Program (ISP), and the National Center for Catastrophic Sport Injury Research...

CONTEXT: Point-to-point racing may place jockeys at risk of having serious injuries due to the high incidence of falls previously reported. Despite many advances in health and safety strategies, the incidence of falls and injuries in point-to-point racing has not been reported since 2006. OBJECTIVES: To provide a longitudinal analysis of the fall and injury incidence in point-to-point horse racing jockeys in Ireland from 2007 to 2015 and compare these findings with the previous literature...

Tyler P Killinger, Kristen Couper Schellhase
CONTEXT: National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) institutions are required to certify insurance coverage of medical expenses for injuries student-athletes sustain while participating in NCAA events. Institutions assign this role to a variety of employees, including athletic trainers (ATs), athletic administrators, business managers, secretaries, and others. In 1994, Street et al observed that ATs were responsible for administering medical claim payments at 68.1% of institutions...

CONTEXT:  Diagnostic and return-to-play assessments of athletes with sport-related concussions (SRCs) have changed dramatically over the past decade. Currently, SRC assessment and management has taken a multifaceted approach, with new SRC measures being developed yearly. However, to date, no researchers have examined certified athletic trainers' (ATs') self-efficacy in assessing and managing a patient with an SRC. OBJECTIVE:  To examine the self-efficacy of ATs in assessing and managing athletes with SRCs, with a secondary purpose of examining job setting (high school and college)...

Bryan L Riemann, Wayne Johnson, Thomas Murphy, George J Davies
CONTEXT: Functional performance tests (FPTs) are tools used to assess dynamic muscle strength and power. In contrast to the lower extremity, fewer FPTs are available for the upper extremity. The seated single-arm shot put test has the potential to fill the void in upper extremity FPTs; however, the underlying mechanics have not been examined and, therefore, the validity of bilateral comparisons is unknown. OBJECTIVE: To examine the effects of upper extremity dominance and medicine-ball mass on the underlying mechanics of the seated single-arm shot put...

CONTEXT: Participation in high school athletics carries a substantial risk of musculoskeletal injury, particularly to the knee. However, limited information is available on the care being provided by athletic trainers (ATs) for athletes with these injuries. DESIGN: Descriptive epidemiology study. SETTING: Data on athletic training facility (ATF) visits and AT services were collected from 147 high schools in 26 states. PATIENTS OR OTHER PARTICIPANTS: High school student-athletes who participated in 13 boys' sports and 14 girls' sports and sustained a diagnosed knee injury during the 2011-2012 through 2013-2014 academic years...

#12
Grant E Norte, Jay N Hertel, Susan Saliba, David R Diduch, Joseph M Hart
CONTEXT:  Relationships between quadriceps function and patient-reported outcomes after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) are variable and may be confounded by including patients at widely different time points after surgery. Understanding these relationships during the clinically relevant phases of recovery may improve our knowledge of specific factors that influence clinical outcomes. OBJECTIVE:  To identify the relationships between quadriceps function and patient-reported outcomes in patients <2 years (early) and >2 years (late) after ACLR, including those with posttraumatic knee osteoarthritis...

OBJECTIVE:  To present recommendations for athletic trainers and other health care providers regarding the identification of risk factors for and management of individuals with patellofemoral pain (PFP). BACKGROUND:  Patellofemoral pain is one of the most common knee diagnoses; however, this condition continues to be one of the most challenging to manage. Recent evidence has suggested that certain risk factors may contribute to the development of PFP. Early identification of risk factors may allow clinicians to develop and implement programs aimed at reducing the incidence of this condition...

CONTEXT:  Data regarding the epidemiology of emergency-transport incidents (ETIs) of patients with sport-related injuries are lacking. Understanding the use of emergency services by athletic trainers can help improve emergency preparedness and prehospital care for injured student-athletes. OBJECTIVE:  To determine the frequencies and types of ETIs resulting from athletic participation. DESIGN:  Descriptive epidemiology study.

CONTEXT:  All 50 states and the District of Columbia have enacted laws governing concussion management and education. These concussion laws, featuring common tenets regarding removal from play, return to play, and concussion education, have shaped school and district policies. OBJECTIVE:  To evaluate the strategies commonly used to implement concussion laws at the school and district levels, as reported by certified athletic trainers (ATs). DESIGN:  Qualitative study...

Cortney N Armitano, Justin A Haegele, Daniel M Russell
CONTEXT:  A comprehensive systematic review of the literature on the use of augmented information in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury-prevention programs to improve jump-landing technique was conducted. The use of motor-learning concepts could provide more robust means of preventing ACL injuries.
