Muscle injuries are the most common type of injury in elite male football and constitute to about a third of total time loss.1 Hamstring injuries are on the rise and now account for nearly one in every four injuries.2 Most muscle injuries in football have short lay-off times (within 4 weeks), while 11% are severe (absence >28 days).1 These severe injuries are the most challenging ones to treat and are associated with a high risk of reinjury.1 A comprehensive description of the injury epidemiology and injury mechanisms and situational patterns using video analysis can support the design of i ..read more

Background Sports in Asia have a key part in fostering social integration as well as the formation of national identities.1 People frequently link their sense of national pride to how well their country’s sports teams perform in international events, improving their country’s status around the world.1 Due to its size, Asia offers a wide variety of experiences in terms of racial and ethnic makeup, culture, religion, sociology, politics and economics.2 Thus, it would be unwise and potentially harmful to try to generalise the Asian sporting experience from a single viewpoint.3 In a multicultural ..read more

Objective Despite evidence supporting the efficacy of sport injury prevention programmes (SIPPs) in adolescents, implementation of SIPPs in community settings is low. This review aims to synthesise and integrate evidence on the efficacy of exercise-based SIPPs in reducing injury rates in adolescents with implementation strategies for such programmes in the community. Design A systematic review with meta-analysis, narrative synthesis and meta-aggregation was conducted, followed by a convergent segregated approach to integrate the findings. Sensitivity and subgroup analyses were conducted. Study ..read more

Methods Data from a large healthcare system on patients aged 14–44 years who underwent isolated meniscus surgery between 2016 and 2022 were analysed. Patient demographics, socioeconomic factors and surgeon volume were recorded. Patient age was categorised as 14–29 years and 30–44 years old.

Exercise as medicine has emerged as an independent discipline in clinical research. Over the last decades, numerous randomised controlled trials (RCTs) have documented the beneficial effects of exercise on various patient-related, disease-related and health-related outcomes in clinical populations.1 Nevertheless, the evaluation of harms in clinical exercise research remains unsatisfactory (table 1).2 3 For instance, nearly half of all exercise trials do not report harms, and there is evidence of selective non-reporting of harms.2 4 5 Furthermore, emerging evidence indicates that exercise might ..read more

Population health, physical activity and active travel Active travel covers walking, cycling and for instance, push-scooting, skateboarding, manual wheelchair use, electrically assisted bikes and handcycles. Increased active travel is one of the most effective ways of increasing population physical activity, as it can form part of daily life, whereas leisure time physical activity may be more expensive and/or time-consuming. Various factors including housing density, mixed-use urban design, financial incentives, infrastructure and road environment shape usage. As active travel is often relativ ..read more

Health equity, as defined by the WHO, ensures that all participants, regardless of background or ability can access and benefit from the essential elements of health and well-being.1 For physical activity and sport, equity often involves breaking down barriers to participation, whether they be financial, cultural or physical. This edition of the BJSM focuses on these three key areas of equity within sport and exercise medicine (SEM). Equity in physical activity Equity in movement and physical activity prioritises fairness and equality of access across the physical activity continuum for all.2 ..read more
