Menthol-Based Topical Analgesic Induces Similar Upper and Lower Body Pain Pressure Threshold Values: A Randomized Trial
The objective of this study was to investigate whether differences existed in PPT and relative pain attenuation associated with a menthol-based topical analgesic over a variety of upper and lower body muscles and tendons.DESIGN: Randomized allocation, controlled, intervention study.METHODS: Sixteen participants (10 females and 6 males) were tested on their dominant or nondominant side. The order of specific muscle/tendon testing was also randomized, which included upper body (middle deltoid, biceps brachii, and lateral epicondylar tendon) and lower body locations (quadriceps, hamstrings, gastrocnemius, lumbosacral erector ...

Isometric Trunk Strength Assessment of Athletes: Effects of Sex, Sport, and Low Back Pain History
J Sport Rehabil. 2021 Sep 22:1-9. doi: 10.1123/jsr.2021-0002. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTCONTEXT: The importance of isometric trunk strength (ITS) among sport science professionals is higher than its actual reported effect size on either performance or low back pain (LBP) occurrence.OBJECTIVE: To provide normative values of ITS and strength ratios, and to evaluate the effect of sex, sports discipline, and LBP status.DESIGN: Crossover study.SETTING: University research laboratory.PARTICIPANTS: Five hundred and sixty-seven elite athletes (186 females) with and without a history of LBP from different sports.MAIN OUTCOME ME...

Hypomobility in Males and Hypermobility in Females are Risk Factors for Shoulder Pain Among Young Swimmers
This study aims to determine the association between shoulder complex mobility and shoulder pain in young male and female swimmers.DESIGN: Prospective cohort design.METHODS: The participants were competitive swimmers (n = 76; 37 males and 39 females) with a mean age of 14 years in Japan. The shoulder rotation width, which was the index of shoulder complex mobility, shoulder internal and external rotation range, and middle finger distance of the back-scratch test were measured. An examiner regularly visited the swimming clubs to evaluate the development of shoulder pain and swimming distance. Logistic regression analysis wa...

Injury-Related Fear in Individuals With and Without Chronic Ankle Instability: A Systematic Review
CONCLUSION: Available evidence emphasizes the importance of injury-related fear in individuals who develop chronicity after ankle sprain injury. The Fear-Avoidance Beliefs Questionnaire and Tampa Scale of Kinesiophobia are useful for the identification of injury-related fear in individuals after sustaining an ankle sprain and should be used to inform rehabilitation strategies and to monitor efficacy in fear reduction.PMID:34544903 | DOI:10.1123/jsr.2021-0015 (Source: Journal of Sport Rehabilitation)

Comparison of Immediate Effects of Foam Rolling and Dynamic Stretching to Only Dynamic Stretching on Flexibility, Balance, and Agility in Male Soccer Players
CONCLUSIONS: Both DS and DS + FR improved flexibility and agility and did not affect balance. DS + FR was not superior to DS at improving flexibility and agility as compared only with DS. Both methods are effective warm-up protocols to augment factors related to injury risk and performance. It seems that further studies that investigate the combined effects of FR and DS are needed.PMID:34544904 | DOI:10.1123/jsr.2021-0017 (Source: Journal of Sport Rehabilitation)

Mechanisms of Arthrogenic Muscle Inhibition
CONCLUSION: AMI is a sequential and cumulative neurological process that leads to complex clinical impairments. Originating with altered afferent information arising from an injured joint, patients experience changes in afferent information, reflexive muscle inhibition, deficiencies in somatosensation, neuroplastic compensations in higher brain centers, and ultimately decreased motor output to the muscle surrounding the joint. Other aspects of clinical function, like muscle structure and psychological responses to injury, are also impaired and influenced by AMI. Removing, or reducing, AMI should continue to be a focus of r...

Reactive Strength as a Metric for Informing Return-to-Sport Decisions: A Case-Control Study
CONCLUSION: Reactive strength data provide insight into functional deficits that persist into the final phase of a return-to-sport protocol. The authors' findings support the use of dynamic assessment tools to inform return-to-sport decisions to limit potential for reinjury.PMID:34470915 | DOI:10.1123/jsr.2020-0408 (Source: Journal of Sport Rehabilitation)

Test-Retest Reliability, Training, and Detraining Effects Associated With the Dynavision D2 ™ Mode A Visuomotor Reaction Time Test
J Sport Rehabil. 2021 Aug 26:1-9. doi: 10.1123/jsr.2020-0550. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTCONTEXT: The Dynavision D2™ Mode A test (ModeA) is a 1-minute reaction time (RT) test commonly used in sports science research and clinical rehabilitation. However, there is limited data regarding the effect of repeated testing (ie, training) or subsequent periods of no testing (ie, detraining) on test-retest reliability and RT performance. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to examine the test-retest reliability, training, and detraining effects associated with the D2™ ModeA test.DESIGN: Repeated measures/reliabil...

Does Supplemental Estrogen Improve Bone-Related Symptoms of Female Athlete Triad in Female Athletes? A Critically Appraised Topic
J Sport Rehabil. 2021 Aug 26:1-5. doi: 10.1123/jsr.2021-0121. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTClinical Scenario: Due to the Female Athlete Triad (Triad) being a 3-pronged syndrome, treatments can vary depending on the symptoms that clinicians focus on. With reproductive and bone health compromised, assessment and recovery methods include monitoring menstrual regularity and dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry scans. Low levels of estrogen have demonstrated negative effects on bone mineral density (BMD). Clinical Question: Does supplemental estrogen improve BMD in athletes with Female Athlete Triad symptoms? Summary of Key Findin...

Does Blood Flow Restriction Resistance Training Improve Knee-Extensor Strength, Function, and Reduce Patient-Reported Pain? A Critically Appraised Topic
J Sport Rehabil. 2021 Aug 26:1-6. doi: 10.1123/jsr.2021-0081. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTClinical Scenario: Knee pathologies often require rehabilitation to address the loss of knee-extensor (KE) strength, function, and heightened pain. However, in the early stages of rehabilitation, higher loads may be contraindicated. Blood flow restriction (BFR) resistance training does not require high loads and has been used clinically to promote strength improvements in a variety of injured populations. BFR resistance training may be an effective alternative to high-intensity resistance training during early rehabilitation of knee...
