    Athletic Groin Pain with Andy Franklyn-Miller, Eanna Falvey and Enda King

    Athletic Groin Pain with Andy Franklyn-Miller, Eanna Falvey and Enda King

    I am delighted to talk with Dr Eanna Falvey and Enda King on the background behind our series of papers published in British Journal of Sports Medicine.

    Eanna is a Consultant in Sports and Exercise Medicine at the Sports Surgery Clinic, Dublin and Senior Lecturer in Sports Medicine at University College, Cork. A former Irish Amateur Heavyweight boxer he has been team doctor for the Irish Mens Rugby Team for over 6 years and two World Cups and as doctor to the British and Irish Lions. He has over 29 original publications, a PhD in Sports Medicine and is author of Clinical Sports Anatomy, McGraw Hill.

    Enda King is a chartered physiotherapist and former Gaelic footballer, who is Head of Performance at the Sports Surgery clinic and has just completed his PhD in the Biomechanics of ACL Rehabilitation with Dr Siobhan Strike at University of Roehampton, London and is in current great demand for the rehabilitation of elite athletes around the world using 3D biomechanics as a tool to guide that process

    In an evening discussion around the three papers published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine we start with anatomy, move to imaging and terminology and diagnostic sensitivity of tests, before moving onto the role of 3D biomechanics, how clusters have shaped our understanding and where they might go in the future before moving on to the success of the rehabilitation program and the various progression tools and use of HAGOS as a primary outcome measure.

    The Sensitivity and Specificity of Testing for Concussion with Dr Jacob Resch

    The Sensitivity and Specificity of Testing for Concussion with Dr Jacob Resch

    I am delighted to talk with Assoc Prof Jacob Resch on the background behind his paper published in BMJ Open Sports and Exercise Medicine, in a discussion around the paper entitled "The sensitivity and specificity of clinical measures of sport concussion: three tests are better than one" which features in my next Research Review 132. Sign up here www.drandyfranklynmiller.com/review.

    The paper is Open access and can be accessed here http://bmjopensem.bmj.com/content/2/1/e000012.abstract

    We talk about the diagnosis of Concussion, the current state of neurocognitive function tests, the statistics behind them, and the basis for multiple tests and the improved sensitivity and specificity and also the future of concussion diagnosis.

    Dr. Jacob Resch completed his undergraduate degrees and Athletic Training and Health Promotions at South Dakota State University before traveling to study and work in London, England. After returning to the United States, Jacob completed his MS in Exercise and Sport Science at South Dakota State while working clinically for Orthopedic Institute in Sioux Falls, SD. Jacob then pursued his Ph.D. in Exercise Science at the University of Georgia investigating current and novel measures of sport concussion and became increasingly involved with the global efforts to expand the profession of athletic training. Following the completion of his doctorate, Jacob obtained an assistant professor position at the University of Texas at Arlington for four years where he taught within the Athletic Training Education Program and conducted research addressing sport concussion in middle school, high school, and collegiate athletes.He now serves as faculty of the University of Virginia Department of Kinesiology in the Fall of 2014 where he teaches in the Graduate Athletic Training Program and continues to investigate current and novel measures of concussion as part of the Brain Injury and Sport Concussion Institute. Jacob also serves as an active member of the National Athletic Trainers’ Association International Committee and the World Federation of Athletic Training and Therapy.

    The focus of Dr. Resch’s research is to investigate the measurement properties of current and novel measures of sport concussion in adult and adolescent athletes. Dr. Resch’s previous studies have addressed reliability and validity of computerized neurocognitive and balance measures. Dr. Resch is currently expanding upon his previous research with computerized neurocognitive and balance measures while investigating novel measures such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), and other biomarkers.

    Athletic Groin Pain with Dr Eanna Falvey

    I am delighted to talk with Dr Eanna Falvey on the background behind his paper published in British Journal of Sports Medicine, in a discussion around the paper entitled "Athletic groin pain (part 1): a prospective anatomical diagnosis of 382 patients—clinical findings, MRI findings and patient-reported outcome measures at baseline" which features in my Research Review 127 (Access here http://eepurl.com/bNSQYf). The paper is Open access and can be accessed here http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26626272

    We talk about the diagnosis of Athletic Groin pain and the literature to date including historical cohorts to date. We cover the terminology, discuss the Doha Consensus and the clinical examination of patients in detail. We move on to the results of the paper itself an the positive predictive value and examination of clinical tests in series with MRI examination. We discuss hip pathology and the relevance in this study and the lack of hernia evidence. Eanna then discusses where the research is headed in the future.

    Subjective and Objective Markers of Training load with Anna Saw

    I am delighted to talk with Anna Saw on her paper published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine this week, entitled "Monitoring the athlete training response: subjective self-reported measures trump commonly used objective measures: a systematic review " which features in my Research Review 112.

    We talk about the both subjective and objective training load markers, unexplained underperformance syndrome and the validity and heterogeneity of the studies included. We discuss the associations between subjective and haematological, immunological and performance markers and then talk of the future work in the area.

    Anna has currently submitted her thesis at Deakin University in Melbourne and with a great start of 3 academic papers links here http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=Anna+E+Saw

    Peak Torque Angle to measure Hamstring injury risk with Ryan Timmins

    Peak Torque Angle to measure Hamstring injury risk with Ryan Timmins

    I am delighted to talk with Ryan Timmins on the background behind this paper published in Sports Medicine, in a discussion around the paper entitled " Is There Evidence to Support the Use of the Angle of Peak Torque as a Marker of Hamstring Injury and Re-Injury Risk? " which features in my Research Review 111.

    We talk about the mechanism of hamstring injuries, the ease of peak torque, the differences in fascicle length and pennation angle, rate of force development and hamstring injury. We move on to existing work on injury prevention, testing of torque and the relationship between joint angle and the confounders of measurement. We then talk of the QUT-ACU work on the Nordbord strain load cells and testing of hamstring strength and then conditioning of the hamstrings.

    Ryan is currently in his post pHD time having just submitted his thesis at Australian Catholic University in Melbourne and with a great start of 6 academic papers links here http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=Timmins+RG+%5BAu%5D
