Beyond biology: a gendered approach to injury with Joanne Parsons and Stephanie Coen. Ep #478
Dr Joanne Parsons (@@J_ParsonsUofM) is a physical therapist and an associate professor at the University of Manitoba. Dr Stephane Coen (@steph_coen) is a health geographer and assistant professor at the university of Nottingham in the UK. To date, ACL injury prevention and management has been approached from a sex-based biological point of view. In this episode, Dr Brooke Patterson (@Knee_Howells) discusses with Joanne and Stephanie how the traditional sex-based approach does not take into account the growing recognition of how sex and gender (a social construct) are ‘entangled’ and influence each other. They discuss their recent editorial (https://bjsm.bmj.com/content/early/2021/03/09/bjsports-2020-103173) and how clinicians can take a gendered approach to inform more effective approaches to injury prevention and management.

What are the odds? Understanding Risk and Uncertainty
What are the odds? Understanding Risk and Uncertainty. Today we welcome Dr. Rod Whiteley for the first time ever to the BJSM podcast. Rod has done a bunch of work in shoulder injuries (measuring load and strength long before it got sexy). And the rumour is he’s still got a pretty good curve ball. A clinician for well over 20 years, He is the current assistant director of the Rehab department here at Aspetar Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Hospital, and he has also contributed heavily in the area of hamstring rehabilitation and groin injuries. Look out for him on twitter @RodWhiteley, where’s he’s happy to be unpopular to point out the obvious. Rod is a clinical researcher, interested in how practitioners can understand statistics better, and integrate that in their daily practice. In this podcast, Rod and I talk about how we understand risk, in particular percentages and odds. And no, they’re not the same thing. 2:45 The difference between odds, ratios, and percentages. 3:20 An example: ACL and hamstring injuries as an example, looking at the base rate for how often these injuries happen (ACL infrequently, and hamstrings quite frequent), and then adding a likelihood ratio and how does that change the odds. 5:20 Chad Cook and Erik Hegedus really turned our ideas around interpreting risk around. Clinicians need to understand pre- and post-test odds. Find the related articles here (http://bmj.co/2m65v43) and in the links below. 6:30 Mladen Jovanovic (@Physical_Prep) - heuristics and uncertainty, published recently here (http://bmj.co/2nrRUUX) in the Aspetar journal. We have to get more comfortable with the uncertainty of these tests. 7:46 Understand base rates, and using tests that have large likelihood ratios in our clinical assessment. Pre-test odds will influence how you interpret your clinical test, which then changes your post-test odds. 10:14 Can we do the same for prevention, and identifying risk? IOC world conference prevention of injury and illness in sport (http://bmj.co/2m64AR8) in Monaco will focus this year on the value of screening. Screening allows us to identify modifiers and change potential interventions at a group level. 10:31 The importance of population level studies, looking for associations with subsequent injury. Screening is useful for injury prevention. “But if you’re doing a test to tell someone they are or aren’t gonna get injuried, you’re gonna make a monkey of yourself in open court pretty quickly.” 12:27 WHO report on risk of cancer risk associated with eating bacon/processed meat. If we ignore the base rate, we might be fooled by the actual change in risk. And then you still need to interpret that for the individual. 14:00 Absolute vs Relative risk, and what is the actual event happening. We don’t think of delayed onset of muscle soreness (DOMS) and sudden cardiac death the same. 14:15 Two players with the same risk of injury, but totally different interpretation of their result. 15:12 Predicting vs Forecasting - “An experiment that only happens once.” You only get one season and and you either get an injury or you don’t. We have to be more comfortable with that kind of uncertainty. 16:35 Predicting return to play with clinical outcome measures. 18:30 How do we interpret and incorporate percentages and odds into our clinical setting.

Sports physiotherapist Dr Kristian Thorborg drills down on optimal loading. Heavy and Slow!
A world leader in sportsphysiotherapy, Associate Professor Dr Kristian Thorborg is from Copenhagen University. He is renowned for his studies and clinical workshops related to patients with hip, groin, hamstring and knee related injuries. Here he outlines: - the paradigm shift for the use of exercise to treat conditions such as tendinopathy and hamstring strains. He addresses questions such as ‘What is the ideal type of exercise?’ and ‘Does the body know if the exercise is concentric or eccentric?’ - cheap technology that can be used to help patients measure the load they are using and to check compliance - the challenge of treating patients in season - the concept of progression and the different stage of rehab that is preparation for ‘return to play’ - prevention – it needs monitoring of the players – waiting until they show up with pain is too late

Transparency and innovative thinking: how rugby is tackling concussion (Part One)
Rugby is often maligned in the press for its inevitable relationship with concussion, with numerous high-profile incidents only compounding the issue. If your reading is restricted to the newspapers, you’d be forgiven for thinking that a culture of denial is in place, however when you delve deeper, there are numerous examples of innovative and powerful research, all of which is already leading to law & policy changes. One leading light in the sport is the Rugby Football Union (RFU), who are actively conducting policy-informing research, and using this to shape the game in order to maximise player welfare. Steffan Griffin, of the BJSM, caught up with Dr Simon Kemp (CMO), Dr Matt Cross (Professional Rugby Medical Research Officer), and Dr Mike England (RFU’s Community Rugby Medical Director), who provide an insight into their work, which is not only shaping the way the game is played, but provides a fantastic blueprint for other sports to follow. This is Part 1: in the build up to the Berlin Consensus Conference. Timeline: 01:15: Can you give us some insight into the scale of concussion in Rugby Union? 04:00: Are the rising rates due to increased incidence or due to people being more likely to recognise and report it nowadays? 06:45: What is the RFU’s general approach to the management of Concussion? 08:45: Can you tell us a little about the ‘recognise, remove, recover and return’ campaign? 14:00: So the aim is to remove as many concussed players from the pitch as soon as possible: what else is the RFU doing to try and ensure this? 19:15: you have published a number of papers in the BJSM – one of which showed a relationship between concussion and subsequent musculoskeletal injuries – could you please elaborate? 21:50: What does this mean about the return to sport following concussion? How could this influence practice?
