Purpose null To estimate prevalences of MCI and dementia diagnoses in former National Football League (NFL) players ≥50 years old and examine the relationships among these diagnoses and an array of predictors of long-term brain health. null Methods null A cross-section of former NFL players (n = 922; aged [mean ± SD] 64.8 ± 8.9 years) completed a questionnaire. Prevalences of self-reported medical diagnoses of MCI and dementia were reported alongside U.S. population estimates across 5-year age i...

Purpose null To determine if eccentric knee flexor strength and biceps femoris long head (BFlh) fascicle length were associated with prospective HSI in professional Australian Football players, and if more frequent assessments of these variables altered the association with injury risk. null Methods null Across two competitive seasons, 311 Australian Football players (455 player seasons) had their eccentric knee flexor strength during the Nordic hamstring exercise and BFlh architecture assessed ...

Purpose null To identify characteristics and movement-based tests that predict upper quadrant musculoskeletal injury (UQI) in military personnel over a 12-month follow-up. null Methods null A prospective observational cohort study of military members (n = 494; 91.9% male). Baseline predictors associated with UQI were gathered through surveys and movement-based tests. Survey data included demographic information, injury history, and biosocial factors. Movement-based tests include: Y-balance tests...

INTRODUCTION Core muscle injuries (CMI) are common in every sport. To minimize lost playing time, providers apply various non-surgical treatments including platelet-rich plasma (PRP), corticosteroids, ultrasound (US)-guided percutaneous tenotomy, and prolotherapy. Limited data exists with regards to their effectiveness. We chose to review a cohort of consecutive professional and collegiate athletes who sustained core muscle injuries at various points within their seasons and underwent a combinat...

Purpose null Although several mechanisms have been proposed for the tumor-suppressive effect of exercise, little attention has been given to myokines even though skeletal muscle is heavily recruited during exercise resulting in myokine surges. We measured resting serum myokine levels before and after an exercise-based intervention and the effect of this serum on prostate cancer cell growth. null Methods null Ten prostate cancer patients undertaking androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) (age 73.3 ± ...

PURPOSE Reduced lean body mass (LBM) is common during and following treatment for breast cancer, and is associated with increased treatment-induced toxicity, shorter time to tumour progression and decreased survival. Exercise training is a potential intervention for maintaining or increasing LBM. We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to investigate the effects of exercise training on LBM in breast cancer. METHODS A comprehensive search was performed to November 2020 for randomised c...
