    On the Field: A Look at Concussions

    On the Field: A Look at Concussions

    Concussions are a serious threat to any athlete in any sport. About 5-10% of athletes will experience a concussion in any given sport. This trauma is considered a brain injury which can obviously be caused by a direct blow to the head or an indirect blow to the body. Symptoms can be physical, cognitive, emotional and “maintenance.” (Maintenance is simply referring to loss of sleep, changes in appetite and energy levels, etc.). The most common symptoms to look for are headaches and dizziness immediately following the concussion.

    Concussion history of an athlete is extremely important to note when determining the extent of the injury. If an athlete has already received on concussion, they are 1-2x more likely to receive a second. After the second, they are 2-4x more likely to receive a third, then they become 3-9x more likely to receive a fourth. The risk of receiving a concussion increases if you have already received one in the past.

    There are multiple long term consequences of multiple concussions. Apart from the obvious neurologic damage from a concussion, there is also the development of mild cognitive impairments. It is extremely important the athlete is careful and patient enough to fully recover from a concussion before they put themselves at risk for another.

    Just to reiterate, all athletes are at risk of experiencing a concussion. Football has the highest risk of concussion for males while soccer has the highest risk for females. Most concussions will happen during games, as opposed to practices, so it’s important not to get caught up in the action of the game and listen to your body and how it’s feeling after any blow to the head or body. 

    In the end, everyone should be aware that concussions can happen to anyone. Be sure to wear proper gear to protect yourself when playing your sport, play by the rules and practice good sportsmanship on the playing field.

    Preventing Common Foot Pain

    Preventing Common Foot Pain

    When most people think about miniaturized miracles, they’re probably referring to mini-computers or MP3 players. As a Pedorthic specialist, I relate that term to the human foot – a mechanism as beautifully engineered as anything man-made or divine.

    Imagine, each foot contains 26 bones, 33 joints, 38 muscles, 56 ligaments, tendons and a complex network of nerves and blood vessels. All is that packaged into each of the two extremities that provides standing balance to the rest of the body.

    According to one study, the average pair of feet takes between 8,000 and 10,000 steps per day, traveling up to 80,000 miles over the course of the average lifetime. Feet absorb 1.5 times of one’s weight when walking and much more when one exercises.

    Given this amount of pounding, it is not surprising that most Americans will visit their physicians at one point or another to deal with distressed feet. Some of their foot problems are hereditary and treatable, and others are brought on by specific conditions that can be corrected.

    Modern medicine can detect and treat the causes of most foot problems, ranging from blisters to muscle and ligament injuries. Causes can be as simple as the wrong pair of shoes for a particular pair of feet, or they can be more complex, such as overuse, misuse or circulatory complications.

    Whatever the circumstance, you are well advised to seek medical treatment at the first signs of unusual foot discomfort because a longer-term problem that begins in the feet can rapidly impact the ankles, knees and other parts of the legs. Musculoskeletal, circulatory or other serious conditions can be symptoms of much broader health issues.

    By treating foot pain or distress early, you can avoid more complicated conditions that can lead to even greater discomfort and preclude the need for more extensive treatment for the future.
