Head Impact Exposure in Youth Soccer and Variation by Age and Sex
Objective: To examine variation in head impact exposure (HIE) by age and sex in youth soccer. Design: Prospective cohort study. Setting and Participants: Youth soccer athletes (11-14 years old) in local clubs. Exposures: Age and sex. Outcome Measures: Head impact exposure measured using adhesive-mounted accelerometers during 1 month of soccer. Results: Forty-six youth athletes (54% female) participated. No athlete reported a concussion during the study. More males than females had at least 1 head impact ≥15 g (P = 0.02). Of those who sustained a head impact above the 15-g threshold (57%), females sustai...

Reactive Osteochondromatous Lesion of the Femoral Neck in a Highly Active Preadolescent Patient: Is This the Pathogenesis of a Cam Deformity?
Abstract: Here, we present a rare case of a preadolescent boy with a prominent bony bump on the femoral neck. The main histological feature was concordant with a reactive osteochondromatous lesion possibly induced by repetitive microtrauma, probably because of overtraining as a soccer goalkeeper. The nature of this pathological change is consistent with the growth of a cam deformity. Especially in the preadolescent age group, we should note that repetitive use of the same joint kinematics may induce a prominent cam deformity. (Source: Clinical Journal of Sport Medicine)

Syncope Episodes and Blood Flow Restriction Training
Abstract: The combination of low-load resistance training [or more recently, neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES)] with a moderate local blood flow restriction (BFR) is becoming a widespread training and rehabilitation method. Scientific data indicate the overall safety of BFR, at least in healthy young people. However, it has been associated with side effects, usually minor, and further research is warranted regarding the safety and efficacy of this technique, especially in clinical populations. We found 3 syncope/presyncopal episodes among 21 healthy people (9 men), all occurring in men and during familiarizatio...

Use of Blood Biomarkers in the Assessment of Sports-Related Concussion—A Systematic Review in the Context of Their Biological Significance
Conclusions: At present, blood biomarkers have only a limited role in the evaluation and management of concussion. Although several biomarkers of brain injury have been identified, continued research is required. S100B holds promise as the most clinically useful diagnostic biomarker. Blood biomarkers, in combination with other clinical data, such as head computed tomography, would maximize the diagnostic accuracy. The methodological limitations evident in blood biomarker research results in the need for the clinical utility of blood biomarker use in concussion to be further explored.

Decreased Average Power of the Hip External Muscles as a Predictive Parameter for Lower Extremity Injury in Women: A Prospective Study
Conclusions: Decreased AP of the hip ER muscles was identified as a significant predictor for LE injury, whereas no hip abduction weakness or peak torque parameters were found to be predictive. Because controlling LE extremity movements is an important function of the hip muscles, they might be more challenged in a dynamic measure such as AP than in a point measure such as peak torque. Concentric AP of hip ER muscles can therefore be seen as an interesting factor to include in LE injury screening protocols. (Source: Clinical Journal of Sport Medicine)

Shoulder Injuries in Canoeing and Kayaking
Conclusions: Paddlers most commonly injure their shoulder when preventing a capsize, during a capsize or while rolling. The paddles strokes performed at these times often require paddlers to place their shoulder in a dangerous abducted and externally rotated position. We believe this is one of the commonest causes of serious shoulder injuries to paddlers. (Source: Clinical Journal of Sport Medicine)

Conclusions: Medical and nonmedical cannabis use among athletes reflects changing societal and cultural norms and experiences. Although cannabis use is more prevalent in some athletes engaged in high-risk sports, there is no direct evidence of performance-enhancing effects in athletes. The potential beneficial effects of cannabis as part of a pain management protocol, including reducing concussion-related symptoms, deserve further attention.

Nonpharmacological Management of Persistent Pain in Elite Athletes: Rationale and Recommendations
Abstract: Persistent pain is common in elite athletes. The current review arose from a consensus initiative by the International Olympic Committee to advance the development of a standardized, scientific, and evidence-informed approach to management. We suggest that optimal management of persistent pain in elite athletes requires an understanding of contemporary pain science, including the rationale behind and implementation of a biopsychosocial approach to care. We argue that athletes and clinicians need to understand the biopsychosocial model because it applies to both pain and the impact of pain with special reference...

Injectable Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs in Sport
Conclusions: Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug medications are currently used at every level of competition. Injectable ketorolac is an effective analgesic and anti-inflammatory drug. However, its potential effectiveness must be weighed against the risk of potential complications in all athletes, especially those who participate in contact/collision sports. The team physician must balance the goal of treating pain and inflammation with the ethical implications and medical considerations inherent in the administration of injectable medications solely to prevent pain and/or return the athlete to competition.

Analgesic Management of Pain in Elite Athletes: A Systematic Review
Conclusions: Existing empirical research does not provide a sufficient body of evidence to guide athletes and healthcare professionals in making analgesic medication treatment decisions. Based on the relatively robust evidence regarding the widespread use of NSAIDs, clinicians and policymakers should carefully assess their current recommendations for NSAID use and adhere to a more unified consensus-based strategy for multidisciplinary pain management in elite athletes. In the future, we hope to see more rigorous, prospective studies of various pain management strategies in elite athletes, thus enabling a shift from conse...

A Rare Presentation of a Morel-Lavallee Lesion of the Lower Leg Successfully Treated With Ultrasound-Guided Aspiration
Abstract: A Morel-Lavallee lesion (MLL) is a relatively rare condition that is caused by a traumatic shearing force. This force leads to a closed degloving injury of the subcutaneous tissue and fascia that creates a potential space that can fill with lymph, blood, and necrotic fat. The MLLs are traditionally seen after high impact trauma and typically located at the greater trochanter and pelvis, although recent reports have found them to be located at the knee, thigh, and lower leg. The MLLs typically present as swelling at the site of injury, which can be difficult to differentiate from several other diagnoses. This ca...

Low-Intensity Pulsed Ultrasound Therapy for a Symptomatic Persistent Olecranon Physis in an Adolescent Baseball Pitcher
Abstract: A 15-year-old competitive right-handed high school baseball pitcher experienced an acute onset of right elbow pain when throwing. He initially treated it conservatively with rest alone for 3 months, but on return to throwing, he was still experiencing pain. Radiographs revealed that he had a persistent olecranon physis. He proceeded with a trial of low-intensity pulsed ultrasound therapy and attained radiographic evidence of bony union at 7 months postinjury, thus avoiding surgical intervention. He returned to pitching competitively 9 months after injury without elbow pain. This is the first reported case of us...

Epidemiology of Injuries in Women's Lacrosse: Implications for Sport-, Level-, and Sex-Specific Injury Prevention Strategies
Conclusions: In women's lacrosse, the rules and equipment used are substantially different than for the men's game. Face and hand injuries are more prevalent for women when compared with men, and ankle injuries are most prevalent in female youth. Medical professionals who treat lacrosse players can benefit from an improved understanding of the types and rates of the injuries they are likely to encounter. Improved awareness of lacrosse-specific injuries can assist these professionals to be more prepared to treat these athletes, which may lead to improved care and outcomes.
