Changes in exertion-related symptoms in adults and youth who have sustained a sport-related concussion - Rutschmann TD, Miutz LN, Toomey CM, Yeates KO, Emery CA, Schneider KJ.

OBJECTIVES: To identify the symptoms responsible for cessation of exercise testing and evaluate changes in post-concussion symptom scores on the Post-Concussion Symptom Scale (PCSS) from the Sport-Concussion Assessment Tool (SCAT5) immediately, 1-4h, and 6...

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]

Authors: Shamshiri A, Rezaei I, Sinaei E, Heidari S, Ghanbari A Abstract CONTEXT: The Balance Error Scoring System (BESS), originally designed to diagnose and assess athletes with concussion syndrome, is now widely used to evaluate postural stability. To interpret balance status, a normative database can be a reliable source. However, different anthropometric characteristics and sociocultural backgrounds across populations hinder the application of previously developed databases in different populations. OBJECTIVE: The present study was designed to develop a normative data set for the general population of heal...
