7 Exercises for Soldiers to Help with Rehab Shoulder Injuries

Movements that you make with your shoulder are affected by 15 muscles and eight ligaments. When you want to rehabilitate (rehab) a shoulder injury, you need to concentrate not only on strength but on balance and flexibility. Below are seven (7) exercises for military personnel to help rehab those shoulder injuries and get them back… Read More

What is the Current Evidence Base for Exercise-based MSI Prevention Strategies in the Military?

Research Paper Title Exercise Programmes to Reduce the Risk of Musculoskeletal Injuries in Military Personnel: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis. Background To evaluate the effect of exercise programmes on reduction of musculoskeletal injury (MSI) risk in military populations. This was a systematic review and meta-analysis with a database search was conducted in PubMed/MEDLINE, EMBASE, Cochrane… 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 Causes of Decrease in Muscle Performance

Muscle performance can be impaired for a variety of reasons, including: Central or peripheral neurologic pathology decreases an individual’s ability to effectively recruit and functionally use their muscles; Injury to the muscle from a strain or contusion decreases performance; and Disuse or deconditioning for any reason. The goal of examination/evaluation of muscle performance is to… Read More

What is the Relationship between Multiaxial Loading History & Tibial Strains during Load Carriage?

Research Paper Title The relationships between multiaxial loading history and tibial strains during load carriage. Background To determine if a history of exercise involving multiaxial loading, through soccer participation, influences tibial stains during incremented load carriage. This was a cross-sectional study. Methods 20 female soccer players (20±1 yr) and 20 mass- and height-matched healthy women… Read More

What is the History of Concussion & Risk of Subsequent Injury in Athletes & Service Members?

Research Paper Title History of concussion and risk of subsequent injury in athletes and service members: A systematic review and meta-analysis. Background Risk of secondary injury after a primary concussion in sports and military contexts is an emerging area of interest in research. The purpose of this review was to provide an evidence synthesis describing… Read More

Can We Use Machine Learning to Predict Lower-Extremity Injury in US Special Forces?

Research Paper Title Using Machine Learning to Predict Lower-Extremity Injury in US Special Forces. Background Musculoskeletal injury rates in military personnel remain unacceptably high. Application of machine learning algorithms could be useful in multivariate models to predict injury in this population. The purpose of this study was to investigate if interaction between individual predictors, using… Read More
