      OBJECTIVES: A high proportion of Achilles tendinopathy patients develop bilateral symptoms with human and animal studies showing bilateral histological changes associated with overuse/pathology in one tendon. The current study examined changes in tendon structure, assessed semi-quantitatively using ultrasound tissue characterisation, in both the symptomatic and asymptomatic tendon in unilateral Achilles tendinopathy patients in comparison to individuals with no history of ...

      Season long competition schedules in football create unique challenges for coaches in balancing the requirements of recovery, developing and maintaining physical fitness, and adjusting the training load before each match. The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of player characteristics (physical fitness, age, and playing experience) and weekly in-season training load on elite match performance across an Australian football season. Twenty-five players (age: 24.1 ± 3.0 ...

      STUDY DESIGN: Cross-sectional. Objectives To determine if quadriceps atrophy was present in people with patellofemoral pain (PFP), and whether the vastus medialis oblique (VMO) was selectively involved.

      BACKGROUND: Despite the lack of research investigating individual quadriceps muscle size in individuals with PFP, it has been suggested that selective atrophy of the VMO relative to the vastus lateralis could be associated with PFP.

      METHODS: The quadriceps muscle sizes of 35 participants ...

      OBJECTIVES: Many athletes with patellar tendinopathy participate in sports with symptoms during or after activities. Current treatments do not decrease pain in-season; eccentric exercises in-season result in an increase in pain. This study examined if isometric and isotonic exercises relieved pain in competing athletes with patellar tendinopathy.

      DESIGN: Randomised clinical trial.

      METHODS: Jumping athletes with patellar tendinopathy playing at least three times per week participated in ...

      OBJECTIVES: Selective atrophy of vastus medialis oblique (VMO) may be present in patellofemoral pain (PFP). This study investigated the validity of real-time ultrasound in measuring the thickness of each quadriceps muscle.

      DESIGN: Cross sectional-Validity.

      SETTING: University laboratory.

      PARTICIPANTS: 10 limbs, 5 people with unilateral PFP.

      MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: The thickness of VMO, vastus lateralis (VL), vastus intermedius (VI), rectus femoris (RF), and vastus medialis (VM) measured ...

      Symptoms of jumper's knee (patellar tendinosis) are not easily quantified and this may explain why there are no evidence-based guidelines for managing the condition. A simple, practical questionnaire-based index of severity would facilitate jumper's knee research and subsequently, clinical management. Thus we devised and tested the Victorian Institute of Sport Assessment (VISA) questionnaire. The brief questionnaire assesses (i) symptoms, (ii) simple tests of function and (iii) ability ...

      OBJECTIVES: A COL5A1 gene variant was shown to be associated with chronic Achilles tendinopathy in a South African population. The aim of this case-control genetic association study was to investigate the BstUI and DpnII restriction fragment length polymorphisms (RFLP) in a second population from Australia and to identify a predisposing haplotype for Achilles tendinopathy in both populations.

      METHODS: 85 Australian and 93 South African patients with tendinopathy, as well as 210 ...

      STUDY DESIGN: Systematic literature review.

      OBJECTIVES: To investigate whether quadriceps atrophy is present in the affected limb of individuals with patellofemoral pain (PFP).

      BACKGROUND: PFP is a common condition. Atrophy of the quadriceps femoris, in particular the vastus medialis obliquus, is often assumed to be present by clinicians, and its resolution may underpin the reported effectiveness of quadriceps strengthening intervention in PFP rehabilitation.

      METHODS: A systematic search ...

      OBJECTIVE: To determine whether the presence of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) osteoarthritis (OA) features in the patellofemoral or tibiofemoral joint (i.e., bone marrow lesions, cartilage lesions, and osteophytes) and/or functional impairments, 1 year following anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR), can predict Knee Injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (KOOS) at 3 years.

      METHODS: A total of 93 participants (56 [60%] men, mean ± SD age 29 ± 9 years) who had undergone MRI ...

      BackgroundAustralian football is a popular sport in Australia, at both the community and elite levels. It is a high-speed contact sport with a higher incidence of medically treated injuries when compared with most other organized sports. Hamstring injuries, ligament injuries to the knee or ankle, hip/groin injuries and tendinopathies are particularly common and often result in considerable time lost from sport. Consequently, the prevention of lower limb injuries is a priority for both ...

      BACKGROUND: Quadriceps strengthening exercises are part of the treatment of patellofemoral pain (PFP), but the heavy resistance exercises may aggravate knee pain. Blood flow restriction (BFR) training may provide a low-load quadriceps strengthening method to treat PFP.

      METHODS: Seventy-nine participants were randomly allocated to a standardised quadriceps strengthening (standard) or low-load BFR. Both groups performed 8 weeks of leg press and leg extension, the standard group at 70% of 1 ...

      OBJECTIVE: To determine the prevalence and factors associated with knee osteoarthritis (OA) defined by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and specific OA features on MRI 1 year after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR).

      METHODS: Isotropic 3.0T MRI scans were obtained for 111 participants (71 men; mean ± SD age 30 ± 8 years) 1 year after ACLR as well as for 20 age-, sex-, and activity level-matched uninjured controls. The MRI OA Knee Score was used to score specific OA ...

      BACKGROUND: There is no disease specific, reliable, and valid clinical measure of Achilles tendinopathy.

      OBJECTIVE: To develop and test a questionnaire based instrument that would serve as an index of severity of Achilles tendinopathy.

      METHODS: Item generation, item reduction, item scaling, and pretesting were used to develop a questionnaire to assess the severity of Achilles tendinopathy. The final version consisted of eight questions that measured the domains of pain, function in daily ...

      BACKGROUND: Overuse injury to the patellar tendon (patellar tendinopathy) is a major reason for interrupted training and competition for elite athletes. In both sexes, the prevalence of unilateral and bilateral tendinopathy has been shown to differ. It has been proposed that bilateral pathology may have a different aetiology from unilateral pathology. Investigation of risk factors that may be unique to unilateral and bilateral patellar tendinopathy in female athletes may reveal insights ...
