Beyond biology: a gendered approach to injury with Joanne Parsons and Stephanie Coen. Ep #478
Dr Joanne Parsons (@J_ParsonsUofM) is a physical therapist and an associate professor at the University of Manitoba. Dr Stephanie Coen (@steph_coen) is a health geographer and assistant professor at the University of Nottingham in the UK.
To date, ACL injury prevention and management has been approached from a sex-based biological point of view. In this episode, Dr Brooke Patterson (@Knee_Howells) discusses with Joanne and Stephanie how the traditional sex-based approach does not take into account the growing recognition of how sex and gender (a social construct) are ‘entangled’ and influence each other. They discuss their recent review (co-authored with Sheree Bekker), (bjsm.bmj.com/content/early/2021…sports-2020-103173) and how clinicians can take a gendered approach to inform more effective approaches to injury prevention and management.

What can SEM learn from the International Space Station w/ Leigh Gabel and Kathryn Ackerman Ep #476
Did you know that being on the International Space Station for a few months can have the same effect on bone density loss as a decade or more of aging here on earth? In this episode, Dr. Erin Macri asks Drs. Leigh Gabel and Kate Ackerman about a recent publication about predictors of bone loss on long-duration space flights – it’s not what you might think! – and how this new information might change how we approach bone health in sports medicine here on earth.
