Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction is one of the most commonly performed and researched orthopedic procedures. As technology and comparative research have advanced, surgical practices have changed to achieve a superior outcome. Our group performed a survey of orthopedic surgeons to evaluate current practice trends and techniques as a follow-up to similar surveys performed in 1999 and 2006. In a survey between 2013 and 2014 consisting of 35 questions regarding the surgical technique, graft choice, fixation method, and perioperative care in ACL reconstruction was sent electronically to the members of the American Orthopaedic Society of Sports Medicine and the Arthroscopy Association of North America...

BACKGROUND: The incidence of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear is increasing, especially in young active adults. Various surgical options like bone-patellar tendon-bone graft and hamstring autograft have been the focus of evaluation and comparison in various aspects, each having specific advantages and demerits. We are increasingly using and analysing quadrupled hamstring autograft for ACL reconstruction. Previously it was advocated as a sports injury, but now we note that road traffic accidents (RTAs) are the most common cause of ACL tear...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Participation in baseball is prevalent across all age groups. Baseball injuries are common and can impact a player's ability to participate. An injury to any region can influence the player's ability to swing the bat. As a part of the athlete's rehabilitation, a sports-specific program should be implemented re-introducing the hitting cycle that addresses proper biomechanics as well as providing a progressive atmosphere to return to hitting. Although there are several return to throwing progression programs in the literature, to the author's knowledge no published hitting progression programs exist...

PURPOSE: Lack of return to sport following anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction often occurs despite adequate restoration of knee function, and there is growing evidence that psychological difference among patients may play an important role in this discrepancy. The purpose of this review is to identify baseline psychological factors that are predictive of clinically relevant ACL reconstruction outcomes, including return to sport, rehab compliance, knee pain, and knee function...

Current endurance champions are turning in winning performances in their late 30s and 40s. These masters-age athletes present a special challenge to Sport Medicine practitioners who in previous decades have simply advised masters-aged athletes to stop competing to prevent or treat injury. The fact is, many of the physical changes commonly attributed to aging alone are actually due to the rages of sedentary aging. Recently a body of literature emerged which begins to define what we are capable of with chronic high-level exercise and guides masters-age athletes to train and rehab smarter to stay competitive...

The efficacy of the rehabilitative process following articular cartilage repair in the knee can be the factor that determines the patient's long-term success, especially for return to sport. Articular cartilage repairs show great promise in allowing patients to return to their former level of function and, when complimented with an appropriate postoperative rehabilitation program, can be highly successful in allowing return to even very high level athletics. This article seeks to overview the most recent evidence regarding the general rehabilitation process for the common types of cartilage repair, discuss common complications which may arise, and determine an athlete's readiness to return to sport...

Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and neuropathies are the most important diseases in neurological rehabilitation financed by the German Pension Insurance. The primary goal is vocational (re)integration. Driven by multiple findings of neuroscience research the traditional holistic approach with mainly empirically derived strategies was developed further and improved by new evidence-based interventions. This process had been, and continues to be, necessary to meet the health-economic pressures for ever shorter and more efficient rehab measures...

BACKGROUND: Performing fire suppression activities results in cardiovascular stress, hyperthermia, and hypohydration. Fireground rehabilitation (rehab) is recommended to blunt the deleterious effects of these conditions. OBJECTIVE: We tested the hypothesis that three rehydration fluids provided after exercise while wearing thermal protective clothing (TPC) would produce different heart rate or core temperature responses during a second bout of exercise in TPC. METHODS: On three occasions, 18 euhydrated firefighters (16 men, two women) wearing TPC completed a standardized, 50-minute bout of upper and lower body exercise in a hot room that mimicked the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) rehabilitation guidelines of "two cylinders before rehab" (20 minutes of work, 10 minutes of recovery, 20 minutes of work)...

Physicians versed in sports medicine may want to look to industry, where primary care skills are increasingly in demand. Aggressive rehab methods honed on athletes can also return workers to the job more quickly. The result? Physicians can expand their practices while helping employers save on worker's compensation costs.

PURPOSE: Equestrian activities are regarded by some as high-risk sports, and our recent experience suggested this to be true. We undertook this study to review our experience with pediatric equestrian injuries. METHODS: After institutional review board approval, we reviewed emergency department and hospital admissions for children 0 to 18 years, with equestrian trauma, over an 11-year period. RESULTS: There were 164 encounters with 135 girls and 29 boys...

Symptomatic isthmic spondylolisthesis is a common problem in the competitive athlete. Presence of this disorder is recognized easily with imaging studies, although a certain index of suspicion is necessary in the face of normal x-rays. Bone scan, CT scan, and MRI may all play a role in diagnosis. Management of this condition, on the other hand, can be more challenging. There are no high level evidence studies with specific recommendations for bracing, rehab, or surgery. Most athletes successfully return to competition with nonoperative treatment...

This paper presents a novel, portable and cost-effective balance trainer with the necessary important features to improve the reach of rehabilitation to the masses. There are three factors that contribute to a person's ability to maintain standing balance: Proprioceptive feedback (from the joints), vision, and the vestibular system. These systems can be affected by injury, infection, or brain damage caused by stroke. One example of such injuries is ankle injury. A large focus of the physiotherapy and sports medicine community is using postural-control tasks to prevent, assess and rehabilitate patients...

Today in each therapy and training program proprioceptive exercises are integrated. A lot of equipment you can buy. But for an more effective training exercises and equipment should be select more regarding the aim and the problem of the training. In literature is not much written about the specific way proprioction equipment stimulate different muscles. In this study 15 students of sport sciences (25.7 +/- 2.2 years, 8 male, 7 female) were tested for a period of 15 seconds in a single-leg standing position on a small rocker board, a wobble board, a gym mat and the Posturomed(c)...

The rehabilitation process begins immediately following ACL injury, with emphasis on reducing swelling and inflammation; improving motion; regaining quadriceps control; allowing immediate weight-bearing; and restoring full passive knee extension and, gradually, flexion. The goal of preoperative rehabilitation is to prepare the patient mentally and physically for surgery. Once the ACL surgery is performed, it is important to alter the rehab program based on the type of graft used and any concomitant procedures performed...
