Do Functional Movement Screen Items predict Dynamic Balance under Military Torso Load?

Research Paper Title Functional Movement Screen Items Predict Dynamic Balance Under Military Torso Load. Background Musculoskeletal injuries threaten military readiness and impose a significant financial burden. The functional movement screen (FMS), a 7-item, preparticipation screening tool, may aid in identifying compensatory movement patterns that can hinder physical performance and lead to injuries in active-duty military… Read More

Can Exercise Affect Immune Function to Increase Susceptibility to Infection?

Research Paper Title Can exercise affect immune function to increase susceptibility to infection? Background Multiple studies in humans and animals have demonstrated the profound impact that exercise can have on the immune system. There is a general consensus that regular bouts of short-lasting (i.e. up to 45 minutes) moderate intensity exercise is beneficial for host… Read More

Discussing Skeletal Muscle Disuse Atrophy & the Rehabilitative Role of Protein in Recovery From Musculoskeletal Injury

Research Paper Title Skeletal Muscle Disuse Atrophy and the Rehabilitative Role of Protein in Recovery From Musculoskeletal Injury. Background Muscle atrophy and weakness occur as a consequence of disuse after musculoskeletal injury (MSI). The slow recovery and persistence of these deficits even after physical rehabilitation efforts indicate that interventions designed to attenuate muscle atrophy and… Read More

What are the Physiologic Adaptations to Resistance Training?

1.0 Introduction This article provides an overview of the physiologic adaptations to resistance training. It outlines the adaptations associated with strength and power followed by endurance. 2.0 Strength and Power The benefits of resistive exercise extend beyond the obvious improvements in muscle performance to include positive effects on the cardiovascular system, connective tissue, and bone.… Read More

Does the Distance between the Peroneal Brevis & the Lateral Fibular Ridge Remain Consistent throughout Extremes of Motion?

Research Paper Title Ultrasound Evaluation of the Peroneal Tendons in an Asymptomatic Elite Military Population: A Prospective Cohort Study. Background The purpose of this study was to identify the location of the peroneal tendons in relationship to the fibular groove in an asymptomatic population of elite US Military Service members. Methods The peroneal tendons of… Read More

What is the Anticipated Reduction in Aerobic Exercise Performance under Various Combinations of Acute Altitude Exposure & Load Carriage Conditions?

Research Paper Title Aerobic Exercise Performance During Load Carriage and Acute Altitude Exposure. Background This study quantified the impact of combined load carriage and acute altitude exposure on 5-km running time-trial (TT) performance and self-selected pacing strategy. Furthermore, this study developed a velocity prediction tool (nomogram) for similar aerobic exercise tasks performed under various combinations… Read More

Can Wearing Shoes Weaken Our Ankle Bones?

Your shoes are changing your feet. The ankles of people who habitually wear shoes are different to those of people who tend to walk barefoot (Sorrentino et al., 2019). In many industrial societies, people tend to wear shoes from a young age. However, many people around the world often go barefoot, or wear only very… Read More
