Authors: Avedesian JM, Covassin T, Dufek JS Abstract Recent evidence suggests previously concussed athletes are at greater risk for lower-extremity (LE) injuries than are controls. However, little is known regarding the influence of sports-related concussion (SRC) on landing biomechanics that may provide a mechanistic rationale for LE injury risk. The purpose of this investigation was to examine LE drop-landing biomechanics in adolescent athletes with and without a previous SRC history. Participants included 10 adolescent athletes with an SRC history and 11 controls from multiple sports. Three-dimensional kinematic...

CONCLUSIONS: The ATs were receptive to including light physical activity into their SRC management, although only in certain situations. However, most ATs' beliefs and clinical practices did not completely align with emerging research recommendations for the management of SRCs. PMID: 32736343 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
