Research so often includes ‘education’ in the comparison arm of clinical trials as though it is a universal, standardized, or perhaps even inert component of intervention. But what if education IS a key ingredient in managing patellofemoral pain? Erin Macri met up with Dr. Michael Rathleff after hearing some impressive presentations from him and his team members at the 5th International Patellofemoral Pain Research Retreat in Gold Coast, Australia. Dr. Rathleff works at the Research Unit for General Practice in Aalborg. He is an associate professor and head of the OptiYouth research group that works towards improving musculoskeletal health in adolescents. In this podcast, Dr. Rathleff shares some innovative and evidence-based approaches to optimizing outcomes for patellofemoral pain using strategic, targeted education.

For the 2nd time on the BJSM podcast, Sean Carmody is joined by David Dunne to discuss practical considerations for the travelling athlete. During his time with Orreco, David has worked closely with athletes from professional golf and the NBA, most of whom face gruelling travel demands during competition. David and Sean delve into the strategies the practitioner can employ to help reduce the risk of illness, minimise the effects of jet lag, improve sleep and optimise performance. These strategies are complimented by lessons David has learnt during his PhD in Behaviour Change at Liverpool John Moores University. Key research linked below:
Elite athletes travelling to international destinations >5 time zone differences from their home country have a 2–3-fold increased risk of illness: http://bjsm.bmj.com/content/46/11/816.
In this podcast, Dr Sean Carmody speaks to Dr Nick van der Horst, who has recently published a paper on decision-making and medical criteria for return to play following hamstring strain injuries. Nick, who is First team physiotherapist at the Go Ahead Eagles in the Dutch Eerst Divisie and holds a PhD in football medicine, provides his thoughts on the controversies around the role of MRI and eccentric strength in determining return to play, and also shares his beliefs about why hamstring strain injuries continue to rise. Finally, Nick closes the podcast with his key tips for clinicians managing hamstring strain injuries. There is lots of research referred to during the podcast, and these are linked below: Return to play after hamstring injuries in football (soccer): a worldwide Delphi procedure regarding definition, medical criteria and decision-making: http://bjsm.bmj.com/content/early/2017/03/30/bjsports-2016-097206 Hamstring injuries have increased by 4% annually in men's professional football, since 2001: a 13-year longitudinal analysis of the UEFA Elite Club injury study: http://bjsm.bmj.com/content/early/2016/01/08/bjsports-2015-095359 Evidence-based hamstring injury prevention is not adopted by the majority of Champions League or Norwegian Premier League football teams: the Nordic Hamstring survey: http://bjsm.bmj.com/content/early/2015/05/20/bjsports-2015-094826 Strategic Assessment of Risk and Risk Tolerance (StARRT) framework for return-to-play decision-making: http://bjsm.bmj.com/content/early/2015/06/02/bjsports-2014-094569.short?rss=1 Hamstring injuries and predicting return to play: ‘bye-bye MRI?’ http://bjsm.bmj.com/content/49/18/1162 MRI does not add value over and above patient history and clinical examination in predicting time to return to sport after acute hamstring injuries: a prospective cohort of 180 male athletes:
Over the last few years, rugby medicine has been somewhat mired with controversy. From ‘Bloodgate’, to concussion, there have been many back-page features in the press, often calling for quite sensationalist measures. Against this backdrop, and away from the gaze of the press, World Rugby have been busy synthesising an evidence base, and adapting the game to try and maximise player welfare. Such efforts have often flown under the radar, and today on the podcast we hear from its Chief Medical Officer & Senior Scientific Advisor, who address a variety of topics including: -The process behind the recent law changes -Trying to optimise the prevention and management of concussion -Injury prevention -Trying to build an evidence-informed player welfare initiative Some resources that you may find useful, and are mentioned in the podcast include: -World Rugby Medical website http://playerwelfare.worldrugby.org/ -The evidence underpinning the tackle laws -Risk factors for head injury events in professional rugby union: a video analysis of 464 head injury events to inform proposed injury prevention strategies http://bjsm.bmj.com/content/51/15/1152 -Injury risk and a tackle ban in youth Rugby Union: reviewing the evidence and searching for targeted, effective interventions.

Die Evidenz basierte Medizin ist ein Grundpfeiler medizinischen Handelns und ist im täglichen Leben des Arztes und Physiotherapeuten nicht mehr wegzudenken. Dr Andreas Waltering (IQWIQ) gibt uns eine Einführung in die Evidenz basierte Medizin (EBM). Anfangen mit der Entstehungsgeschichte der EBM. Die EBM wurde im Gegensatz zu Deutschland von der Ärzteschafft selber gefordert. Im deutschsprachigen Raum wurde die EBM primär eingeführt um der Fehlversorgung entgegen zu wirken. Dr Markus Laupheimer (@swisssportscare) stellt die Fragen. Wieso ist EBM wichtig? Sollen wir den Vorlieben der Chef oder Oberärzte folgen? Oder sollen wir Patientenbezogen die EBM einsetzten? EBZ ist für ein Gesundheitssystem wichtig um Therapien die nachweislich was Bewirken zu fördern und zu bezahlen. Im Gegensatz dazu sollten Therapien die Nachweislich keinen Nutzen haben nicht von der Solidargemeinschaft bezahlt werden. Systematische Übersichtsarbeiten helfen Verzerrungen von einzelnen Studien zu vermeiden um den größten Aussagewert zu erhalten. Hierarchie der Evidenz: http://canberra.libguides.com/c.php?g=599346&p=4149721 Praktisches Beispiel in der Sportmedizin gibt es viele, jedoch eines der meisten untersuchten Therapien ist die Arthroskopie bei Gonarthrose, welche keinen Vorteil zu Placebo zeigt. #Bewegungsmedizin #Evidenzbasiert Dabei sollten wir nicht vergessen “Bewegung bringt Heilung” (https://soundcloud.com/bmjpodcasts/einfuhrung-in-die-bewegungsmedizin-bewegung-bringt-heilung-mit-dr-boris-gojanovic?in=bmjpodcasts/sets/bjsm-1) Weitere links zur Evidenzbasierten Medizin: Deutsches Netzwerk Evidenzbasierten Medizin e.V. http://www.ebm-netzwerk.de/ Center of evidence-based medicine University of Oxford IQWIQ : Institut für Qualität und Wirtschaftlichkeit im Gesundheitswesen https://www.iqwig.de/ Euch einen aktiven und bewegungsreichen Tag!

Professor Lorimer Moseley (PT, PhD) is Chair of Physiotherapy at the University of South Australia and a professor of Clinical Neurosciences. http://people.unisa.edu.au/lorimer.moseley He combines Oxford rigour with a laconic and very popular Australian style of communication. In this podcast he addresses the questions: What’s new in our understanding of the spinal cord? What should we be telling patients? Is the ‘hands on, hands off’ debate a useful one? How do you feel the profession is performing right now? On the subject of what should we be telling patients, he argues we should train them to ask clinicians 3 questions. 1. How do I know my pain system is over-protective? 2. What can I do to retrain my system to be less protective? 3. Am I safe to move?

Allyson M Pollock is professor of public health and Director of Institute of Health and Society in the Medical Faculty of Newcastle University. She is a public health doctor and has been researching injuries and rugby injuries for more than ten years. She takes what she describes as the ‘child’s perspective’ and asks – Do children know the risks of playing school rugby? Do all schools have appropriate risk mitigation? She reminds us that the health benefits of physical activity are well proven – but if one critically reviews the literature those benefits have not been proven for school rugby. This is a controversial position that is strongly countered by others. BJSM doesn’t have a position in this debate – our job is to highlight that there is a respectful debate and to encourage scrutiny of the existing evidence. We encourage researchers to add new data to this question and similar ones in sport.
