  • The relationship of quadriceps (Q) angle and body mass index with
           non-contact anterior cruciate ligament injury among male athletes

    • Abstract: Introduction: The aim of this study was to identify the relationship of Quadriceps (Q) angle and Body Mass Index (BMI) with non-contact Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) injury among collegiate male track and field athletes. Methods: A case control study done at Sports Medicine Unit, National Hospital of Sri Lanka and Ministry of Sports Sri Lanka recruited collegiate male track and field athletes aged 15-25 years with noncontact ACL injury (n=35) as cases and age matched healthy athletes as controls (n=70). Stadiometer, electrical weighing scale and goniometer were used to measure height, weight and Q angle respectively. Results: Mean age of the cases and controls were 20.63±2.98 years and 20.67±2.98 years respectively. The mean BMI in cases group was 23.79±1.91 kg/m2 and control group was 21.85±1.27 kg/m2 (p<0.05). The mean value of the Q angle in case group was 15.93° ± 1.34 and control group was 14.29° ± 0.84 (p<0.05). Conclusion: This group of male track and field athletes with non-contact ACL injury had a significantly higher BMI and Q angle compared to the non-injured athletes. These factors have to be considered with other risk factors associated, during the development of management and preventive strategies. Published on 2019-12-30 00:00:00
       
  • Prevention of sports injuries in Sri Lanka: what do we know about injuries
           in our athletes'

    • Abstract: In terms of safeguarding the health and well-being of athletes in Sri Lanka, a primary focus has always been toward the treatment of injuries after they have occurred and promoting rehabilitation back into sport. There has been little attention towards the primary prevention of injuries in Sri Lankan sports. As a developing sporting nation, the benefits of injury prevention are immense: from a public health and financial perspective, through to individual benefits for athletes’ physical, psychological and social health. Understanding the reasons behind the lack of motive towards sports injury prevention in the country, and challenges in developing and implementing injury prevention measures in the field is useful so that these reasons can be addressed and overcome. Based on recent experience in conducting injury prevention research among Sri Lankan junior cricketers, this article discusses injury prevention principles in sport and provides directions for future sport injury prevention research in Sri Lanka.

  • Kick start training during the COVID-19 pandemic - Challenges of the
           sporting community

    • Abstract: The COVID-19 pandemic has rapidly spread across the world with increasing morbidity and mortality, leading to implementation of strict preventive measures. Athletes and the sporting community are currently confined to homes, and sporting events are being postponed with times of uncertainty, where physical, technical, and psychological damage is inevitable. The clinical and immunological behavior of the SARS-CoV-2 virus infection is still being analyzed. Exercise in moderation has positive effects on human immunity and wellbeing. Athletes need to be guided to maintain physical, psychological and nutritional conditioning using available knowledge and opportunities. Practice of national health recommendations when training in the home environment and adapting to the ‘new normal’ environment will be a challenge. Scientific sporting bodies around the world have recommended well planned stepwise structured processes for the resumption of normal training for the safety of the athletes and the wider community. It is recommended, whenever possible that guidance and strategies are developed using the best available scientific evidence. Published on 2019-12-30 00:00:00
       
  • Physical modalities used in rehabilitation of musculoskeletal injuries
           sustained during sports and physical exercises

    • Abstract: Injuries are common during sports and exercise. In addition to medication, physical exercise and massage therapy, rehabilitation specialists use a variety of physical modalities to reduce pain, facilitate healing and restore function. These include the use of therapies such as cold, heat, light, ultrasound, extra corporeal shock wave and electrical stimulation. However, if used in an incorrect manner these modalities can cause further harm and delay healing. Hence proper usage is important to maximize benefits and avoid harmful effects. This narrative review will discuss the different physical modalities and techniques, together with their indications, contraindications and techniques of usage.

  • Validation of the Sinhalese version of the Oswestry Disability Index for
           low back pain

    • Abstract: Introduction: Low back pain (LBP) is a major cause of disability. Oswestry Disability Index (ODI) is used to evaluate the impact of LBP) on daily activities. The objective of the current study was to validate and culturally adapt the ODI to the Sinhalese speaking Sri Lankan population.  Methods: The study was conducted at National Hospital, Sri Lanka, including an 18-65 years aged cohort of 100 patients with chronic LBP. The Sinhalese ODI version 2.1a was validated by assessing the test-retest reliability (Intraclass correlation coefficient), internal consistency (Cronbach α) and constructs validity comparing the ODI with the Roland Morris Disability Questionnaire (RDQ) and Visual Analog Scale for pain intensity (Pearson correlation coefficient). Results: The mean age (±SD) of the study participants was 50.17±11.20 years and mean duration of LBP among participants were 34.00±43.58 months. The ODI had an overall Cronbach α coefficient of 0.811 (95% CI 0.746- 0.865). An excellent agreement was detected between test and re-test ODI scores, indicated by an ICC of 0.983 (95% CI: 0.975-0.989. The Pearson’s correlation test revealed a significant strong positive correlation between ODI and RDQ (r=0.989, p<0.001) and a moderate positive correlation between ODI and VAS pain intensity (r=0.568, p<0.001). Conclusion: The Sinhalese translation of the ODI version 2.1a had good reliability, temporal stability, and validity when assessed compared to other standard measures. The ODI can be employed in future studies assessing LBP disability in Sri Lanka. Published on 2019-12-30 00:00:00
