Concussion, Athlete Triad Hot Sports Medicine Topics

DENVER  Best practice for concussion and the female athlete triad, a syndrome of three interrelated conditions  energy deficiency, menstrual disturbances, and bone loss  will be in the spotlight at the upcoming American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) 2017 Annual Meeting.

.

“The presenters are doing leading-edge research in that area,” said Sandy Hoffmann, MD, from Idaho State University in Pocatello, who is on the program committee for the meeting.

.

Results will be presented from a randomized controlled trial of a treatment that focuses on increasing energy availability, conducted by Mary Jane De Souza, PhD, from Pennsylvania State University in State College, and her colleagues.

.

A separate study probing the role of psychological stress in the triad syndrome, also by Dr De Souza’s team, looks at the effectiveness of calorie restriction and exercise regimens over three menstrual cycles.

.

The public attention focused on traumatic brain injury in sports led ACSM organizers to set aside time to update meeting attendees on concussion research.

.

“We appreciate what’s happening to the NFL, but it reaches down to the pediatric community,” Dr Thompson explained.

.

Among the key presentations during this session are a study on whether neck strength reduces concussion risk and the role that physical activity plays in concussion recovery. Physicians often recommend against vigorous activity in the aftermath of a concussion, but is that the best advice?

.

Opioids in the Pediatric Hospital

.

Pain management will figure prominently at the meeting as well. The prescription of opioid drugs will be examined in a study of patients 10 to 18 years of age treated at a pediatric hospital, conducted by researchers from the University of Colorado Denver.

.

“Is it really the doctors’ fault that they’re prescribing opioids, or does some of the blame have to be shifted to the patients and insurance companies?” asked Walter Thompson, PhD, from Georgia State University in Atlanta, who is president-elect of the ACSM.

More studies at the meeting will be devoted to the topic of optimized exercise as medicine than anything else. “ACSM isn’t just focused on what people think of as traditional sports medicine, but on the idea of physical activity for a lifetime,” Dr Hoffman told Medscape Medical News.
