Defining the Contemporary Epidemiology and Return to Play for High Ankle Sprains in the National Football League
CONCLUSION: RTP rate was high following high ankle sprain amongst NFL players at 90%, with an average recovery period of 11 weeks. Defensive players experience RTP faster than offensive players. Future studies are needed to determine performance outcomes following RTP, along with which patients might benefit from surgery.PMID:33906554 | DOI:10.1080/00913847.2021.1924046 (Source: The Physician and Sportsmedicine Online)

Impact, incidence and prevalence of musculoskeletal injuries in senior amateur male rugby: epidemiological study
Conclusion: The prevalence, incidence, and injury burden reported in this study are unprecedented and would add knowledge for the amateur rugby union community. Trainers, physicians, and physical therapists, should consider it to improve their clinical practice.PMID:33906560 | DOI:10.1080/00913847.2021.1924045 (Source: The Physician and Sportsmedicine Online)

Does wearing a mask while exercising amid COVID-19 pandemic affect hemodynamic and hematologic function among healthy individuals? Implications of mask modality, sex, and exercise intensity
Conclusion: Our findings show that wearing a face mask (N95/surgical) while exercising has no detrimental effects on hemodynamic/hematologic function in both males and females, and suggest that wearing a mask, particularly a surgical mask, while exercising during the ongoing pandemic is safe and poses no risk to individual's health. Future studies examining physiological responses to chronic exercise with masks are warranted.PMID:33902400 | DOI:10.1080/00913847.2021.1922947 (Source: The Physician and Sportsmedicine Online)

The Effect of Specialization and Level of Competition on Injury in Elite Male Ice Hockey Players
Conclusions: Specializing exclusively in ice hockey earlier in life was not associated with playing professionally. Both collegiate and professional players do not tend to specialize prior to age 12. Age at specialization was not associated with overall number of injuries. Professional players with longer careers appear to sustain more concussions and undergo more surgery.PMID:33840376 | DOI:10.1080/00913847.2021.1916786 (Source: The Physician and Sportsmedicine Online)

Exercise induced neuropathic lower leg pain due to a tibial bone exostosis
ConclusionAn awkward lower leg discomfort that is present at night and worsens during exercise combined with altered foot sole skin sensation in the presence of a tibial bone exostosis may suggest tibial nerve neuropathy.

The targeting rule does not increase the rate of lower extremity injuries in NFL players over two seasons
Conclusions: The rate of lower extremity injuries and players placed on the injury reserve over the past two NFL seasons following the enactment of playing rule article 8 has not significantly increased. However, the average games missed due to lower extremity injuries significantly increased under playing rule article 8, which suggests that the severity of lower extremity injuries possibly increased.Level of evidence: IV Diagnostic.PMID:33784939 | DOI:10.1080/00913847.2021.1910873 (Source: The Physician and Sportsmedicine Online)

Child Participation in Collision Sports and Football: What Influences Parental Decisions?
Conclusions: Parents incorporate many sources of information into the decision to allow or disallow their child to participate in collision sports. A child's desire to play a sport and child safety are driving factors for parents faced with the decision of whether to allow participation in collision sports. Physician input is more frequently influential to parents than the media, underscoring the responsibility of physicians to engage families on the risks, benefits, and resources available for sport participation.PMID:33764271 | DOI:10.1080/00913847.2021.1908867 (Source: The Physician and Sportsmedicine Online)
