  • Are we entering a golden age for changing lives in sports and exercise
    • Authors: Aspinall; S.
      Pages: 815 - 815
      Abstract: Are we entering a golden age for changing lives in sports and exercise medicine' It is an exciting time to be working in healthcare and medicine! Despite the myriad of challenges, the opportunities we have to genuinely and lastingly change people’s lives for the better are legion. How many professions have the opportunity to change a person’s current health, future health, sports and work performance alongside having a positive impact on social and family life' To enable us to do this we need not only the right knowledge and skill set, but we also need to be able to apply it to our patients in the real world, without becoming bogged down in seeing patients only as a specific pathology or an injury to treat. They are so much more than that and so are we. This issue of the British Journal of Sports Medicine (BJSM) offers real...

  • Holistic hamstring health: not just the Nordic hamstring exercise
    • Authors: Oakley, A. J; Jennings, J, Bishop, C. J.
      Pages: 816 - 817
      Abstract: Introduction Hamstring strain injuries (HSIs) are the most prevalent in team sports, accounting for 12%–26% of injuries in Australian rules football, American football, football, rugby and track and field.1 The biceps femoris is the most commonly injured muscle with 53%–68% of injuries occurring during sprinting.1 In European football, the incidence and recurrence of HSI has continued to rise, while in Australian rules football, a notable reduction in HSI recurrences has been reported.1 It is possible that evidence-based hamstring injury prevention is not adopted or adhered to in some elite level football teams,2 which may explain the rise in HSI. Although not an exhaustive list, HSI risk factors include: age, previous injury, strength imbalance, flexibility, fatigue1 and low eccentric strength.3 There is a growing body of evidence on the Nordic hamstring exercise (NHE) and its impact on...

  • 'Caution, this treatment is a placebo. It might work, but it might not:
           why emerging mechanistic evidence for placebo effects does not legitimise
           complementary and alternative medicines in sport
    • Authors: Beedie, C; Whyte, G, Lane, A. M, Cohen, E, Raglin, J, Hurst, P, Coleman, D, Foad, A.
      Pages: 817 - 818
      Abstract: Complementary and alternative medicines (CAM) are treatments for which either evidence is lacking, or for which evidence suggests no effect over a placebo treatment. When a non-evidence-based treatment is used alongside conventional medicine, it is considered ‘complementary’. When a non- evidence-based treatment is used instead of conventional medicine, it is considered ‘alternative’. Many forms of CAM have origins and/or a history of use beyond evidence-based medicine. Further, many CAM treatments are based on principles and/or evidence that are not recognised by the majority of independent scientists. When a person uses CAM and experiences an improvement in symptoms, this may be due to the placebo effect.1 CAM is widely used in sport, often by elite athletes. One example is Michael Phelps’ use of ‘cupping’ during the 2016 Olympics. Evidence for the effectiveness of CAM in sport has been reported in some work, but more studies have reported CAM...

  • The 'Goldilocks Principle: designing physical activity at work to be 'just
           right for promoting health
    • Authors: Straker, L; Mathiassen, S. E, Holtermann, A.
      Pages: 818 - 819
      Abstract: Physical activity is generally accepted to promote good health. However, it is well documented that the wrong type of physical activity can be bad for health in both occupational and leisure contexts. For example, too much mechanical force can lead to musculoskeletal injury,1 too frequent activity can lead to fatigue2 and too prolonged standing can lead to varicose veins.3 Similarly, too little force can lead to bone and muscle loss, too infrequent moderate/vigorous physical activity can lead to cardiorespiratory deconditioning and too little standing or walking can lead to impaired cardiometabolic health.4 The ‘just right’ paradigm, the ‘Goldilocks Principle’ Therefore, we argue that the benefits of physical activity, both at work and leisure, can only be seen when the various aspects of physical activity are ‘just right.’ When being ‘just right,’ activity promotes physical capacity and health, when being ‘not...

      Pages: 822 - 823
      Abstract: Tendinopathy, a clinical term used to describe ‘tendon-related pain’, is a heterogeneous clinical presentation, reflected by the wide-ranging pain presentations and functional deficits.1 For this population, load-based exercise is effective; however, the ‘optimal’ type of exercise, intensity, frequency and duration are not known.2 3 Substantial variety has been a feature of the exercise prescription used in tendinopathy research to date. However, this variation does not appear to have impacted the results. Exercise programmes as different as a concentric-eccentric heavy slow loading programme performed three times per week and eccentric only exercises performed twice daily, 7 days/week, have achieved similar results.4 While within-group mean severity scores improve, individual responses are wide ranging for the same exercise programme4 and success rates vary from 44% failing to improve5 to 100% success6 for a similar exercise intervention. Here we discuss a...

  • Comparison of four Fitbit and Jawbone activity monitors with a

    • Authors: Imboden, M. T; Nelson, M. B, Kaminsky, L. A, Montoye, A. H.
      Pages: 844 - 850
      Abstract: Background/aimConsumer-based physical activity (PA) monitors have become popular tools to track PA behaviours. Currently, little is known about the validity of the measurements provided by consumer monitors. We aimed to compare measures of steps, energy expenditure (EE) and active minutes of four consumer monitors with one research-grade accelerometer within a semistructured protocol.MethodsThirty men and women (18–80 years old) wore Fitbit One (worn at the waist), Fitbit Zip (waist), Fitbit Flex (wrist), Jawbone UP24 (wrist) and one waist-worn research-grade accelerometer (ActiGraph) while participating in an 80 min protocol. A validated EE prediction equation and active minute cut-points were applied to ActiGraph data. Criterion measures were assessed using direct observation (step count) and portable metabolic analyser (EE, active minutes). A repeated measures analysis of variance (ANOVA) was used to compare differences between consumer monitors, ActiGraph, and criterion measures. Similarly, a repeated measures ANOVA was applied to a subgroup of subjects who didn’t cycle.ResultsParticipants took 3321±571 steps, had 28±6 active min and expended 294±56 kcal based on criterion measures. Comparatively, all monitors underestimated steps and EE by 13%–32% (p

  • Effectiveness of online tailored advice to prevent running-related
           injuries and promote preventive behaviour in Dutch trail runners: a
           pragmatic randomised controlled trial
    • Authors: Hespanhol, L. C; van Mechelen, W, Verhagen, E.
      Pages: 851 - 858
      Abstract: BackgroundTrail running is popular worldwide, but there is no preventive intervention for running-related injury (RRI).AimTo evaluate the effectiveness of adding online tailored advice (TrailS6 ) to general advice on (1) the prevention of RRIs and (2) the determinants and actual preventive behaviour in Dutch trail runners.MethodsTwo-arm randomised controlled trial over 6 months. 232 trail runners were randomly assigned to an intervention or control group. All participants received online general advice on RRI prevention 1 week after baseline. Every 2 weeks, participants in the intervention group received specific advice tailored to their RRI status. The control group received no further intervention. Bayesian mixed models were used to analyse the data.ResultsTrail runners in the intervention group sustained 13% fewer RRIs compared with those in the control group after 6 months of follow-up (absolute risk difference –13.1%, 95% Bayesian highest posterior credible interval (95% BCI) –23.3 to –3.1). A preventive benefit was observed in one out of eight trail runners who had received the online tailored advice for 6 months (number needed to treat 8, 95% BCI 3 to 22). No significant between-group difference was observed on the determinants and actual preventive behaviours.ConclusionsOnline tailored advice prevented RRIs among Dutch trail runners. Therefore, online tailored advice may be used as a preventive component in multicomponent RRI prevention programmes. No effect was observed on determinants and actual preventive behaviours.Trial registration numberThe Netherlands National Trial Register (NTR5431).

  • Different doses of Pilates-based exercise therapy for chronic low back
           pain: a randomised controlled trial with economic evaluation

      Abstract: ObjectivesTo evaluate the effectiveness and cost-utility of the addition of different doses of Pilates to an advice for non-specific chronic low back pain (NSCLBP) from a societal perspective.DesignRandomised controlled trial with economic evaluation.SettingPhysiotherapy clinic in São Paulo, Brazil.Participants296 patients with NSCLBP.InterventionsAll patients received advice and were randomly allocated to four groups (n=74 per group): booklet group (BG), Pilates once a week (Pilates group 1, PG1), Pilates twice a week (Pilates group 2, PG2) and Pilates three times a week (Pilates group 3, PG3).Main outcome measuresPrimary outcomes were pain and disability at 6-week follow-up.ResultsCompared with the BG, all Pilates groups showed significant improvements in pain (PG1, mean difference (MD)=–1.2, 95% CI –2.2 to –0.3; PG2, MD=–2.3, 95% CI –3.2 to –1.4; PG3, MD=–2.1, 95% CI –3.0 to –1.1) and disability (PG1, MD=–1.9, 95% CI –3.6 to –0.1; PG2, MD=–4.7, 95% CI –6.4 to –3.0; PG3, MD=–3.3, 95% CI –5.0 to –1.6). Among the different doses, PG2 showed significant improvements in comparison with PG1 for pain (MD=–1.1, 95% CI –2.0 to –0.1) and disability (MD=–2.8, 95% CI –4.5 to –1.1). The cost-utility analysis showed that PG3 had a 0.78 probability of being cost-effective at a willingness-to-pay of £20 000 per quality-adjusted life-year gained.ConclusionsAdding two sessions of Pilates exercises to advice provided better outcomes in pain and disability than advice alone for patients with NSCLBP; non-specific elements such as greater attention or expectation might be part of this effect. The cost-utility analysis showed that Pilates three times a week was the preferred option.Trial registration number NCT02241538, Completed.

      Abstract: When I was preparing this talk for TEDx Purdue in 2015, I had no idea it would be viewed over 2.8 million times. I firmly believe the reaction to this talk is an expression of people being fed up. Fed up with the status quo. Fed up with listening to the advice they were given only to get worse. Fed up with yet another prescription bringing another side effect and more costs. Fed up and looking for advice that is not only evidence-based,1–11 but also doable. Fed up and searching for a way to escape the progressive cycle of type 2 diabetes. Here it is. A solution that goes back to the basics and remembers that we can and should use Food as Medicine.

      Abstract: The clinical problem Half of adults will experience knee pain at some point during their lives, resulting in approximately 4 million primary care office visits in the USA annually.1 The majority of these visits for knee pain evaluation are due to osteoarthritis (OA).2 As of 2015, it was estimated that 14 million people in the USA have symptomatic knee OA,3 and this number is expected to increase to up to 28 million over the next decade.4 One of the most common factors that can initiate the cascade of knee OA is meniscus tears.5 Meniscus root tears are a specific type of meniscal injury that have gained attention over the past 5 years and have been reported to account for 10%–21% of all meniscal tears, affecting nearly 100 000 patients annually.6–8 Untreated meniscal root tears have been reported...

      Abstract: Al Attar WSA, Soomro N, Sinclair PJ, et al. Effect of injury prevention program that include the Nordic exercise on hamstring injury rates in football players: a systematic review and meta-analysis. Sports Med 2017; 47:907–916. Background Hamstring injuries are the most common non-contact injuries in sport1 and account for 40% of muscle injuries in football,2 where up to one-third recur the following season.3–5 The rehabilitation of players with hamstring injuries usually lasts more than a month, restricting the athlete’s performance and causing a financial impact on clubs.3 4 6 The Nordic hamstring (NH) exercise is a promising option to decrease the risk of hamstring injuries in athletes. However, results of randomised controlled trials have been conflicting.6–8 Aim The aim of this review was to assess the...

  • Exercise prescription is not just for medical doctors: the benefits of
           shared care by physicians and exercise professionals

      Pages: 879 - 880
      Abstract: As allied health professionals, we commend the Canadian Academy of Sport and Exercise Medicine (CASEM) on their recent position statement to better equip physicians for physical activity prescription.1 The CAESM call on physicians to be more engaged in physical activity prescription to reduce the burden of non-communicable diseases associated with physical inactivity. Physicians are uniquely positioned in healthcare systems to improve population levels of physical activity. Most people visit a physician at least annually, and physician advice remains influential in guiding patient behaviour. For example, a simple physical activity counselling intervention by general practitioners significantly reduced inactivity.2 A key objective of the Exercise is Medicine initiative is for physicians to assess and record physical activity during every patient visit, similar to a vital sign and to facilitate an exercise prescription. However, despite the acknowledged intentions of the CAESM statement, many physicians will...

      Abstract: I welcome the letter from Maiorana et al1 and am delighted to respond. Thank you for your comments regarding our position statement.2 Referral to certified exercise professionals and other qualified healthcare practitioners can be an important tool to assist patients. The effectiveness of referral schemes has not always been demonstrated3–6; therefore, the search to identify the best way to support physical activity prescription long-term continues. Future research will inform health policy leaders and governments by addressing the gap between what we know works under ideal conditions (ie, efficacy) and what we do not yet know regarding long-term effectiveness.7 Physicians perceive lack of time and limited training as barriers to prescribing exercise, as your letter pointed out; nevertheless, the relative safety and simplicity of physical activity counselling by physicians is encouraging. For many patients who visit their physician for...
