Sport improves concentration and quality of life
Physically fit primary school pupils feel better and can concentrate better. They are more likely to make it to higher-level secondary grammar schools than children with less sporting abilities. This has been confirmed for the first time in a study by the Department of Sport and Health Sciences at the Technical University of Munich (TUM).
How long should a concussed athlete be sidelined?
What factors predict recovery time for an athlete who has suffered a concussion? A new study has some answers. As the Stanford University authors wrote, “Prognosticating recovery times for individual athletes with a concussion remains a challenge for health care providers. Several preinjury and postinjury factors have been proposed to be predictive of prolonged return-to-play times, but the data in this area are still sparse.”
Ankle Exercises and Physical Therapy for Ankle Injuries
The ankle joint is one of the major weight-bearing joints in the body. As a result of this function and partly due to its structure, the ankle is often injured, such as when jumping and landing incorrectly.
MIS Achilles tendon repair superior to open repair
Minimally invasive surgery is a safe and reliable technique for Achilles Tendon Repair, researchers of a new study contend.
Minimally Invasive Sinus Tarsi Approach for Open Reduction and Internal Fixation of Calcaneal Fractures: Complications, Risk Factors, and Outcome Predictors
Open reduction and internal fixation of displaced intraarticular calcaneal fractures remain the gold standard of treatment, but the traditional extensile approach has been associated with relatively frequent complications. The current study aims to evaluate the less invasive sinus tarsi approach and to elaborate on the associated complications, risk factors, and outcome predictors.
