SPORTS MEDICINE: Drew Brees poster boy for wreck of a football season | John Doherty

Name: Walter Payton

Best decade: 1970s

Nickname: Sweetness

Position: Running back

Seasons played with Bears: 13

Career Highlights: Walter Payton might be regarded as the greatest Chicago Bear of all time and one of the best to ever play, according to fans and media. 

Payton’s professional origin began in 1975 when the Bears selected him in the first round of the NFL Draft. He was the fourth overall pick.

The Bears hadn’t had a winning season or a great running back since Gale Sayers retired in 1972. Payton was a gift the Bears needed from the football gods. 

However, his rookie season showed otherwise. He finished with 679 yards and seven touchdowns, but led the league in yards per kickoff return.

Payton was ready to improve for the following season. 

In 1976, Payton rushed for 1,390 yards and scored 13 touchdowns. He played in the 1977 Pro Bowl and won the MVP award for the game. 

Payton’s early years of improving never stopped. In his 1977 season, Payton rushed for 1,852 yards and scored 16 touchdowns. He was the league’s leading scorer that season. 

On October 7, 1984 Payton broke the NFL’s career rushing record. 

In 1985 — the best year in the history of Chicago football — Payton rushed for more than 1,500 yards and helped the Bears get to Super Bowl XX. 

Mike Ditka, who coached the winning Super Bowl team, said that one of the biggest regrets he made in his life was not letting Payton score a touchdown in the game, using quarterback Jim McMahon and defensive tackle William Perry to run the ball instead.

Sports medicine deals with the physical fitness of athletes. It is used for prevention and treatment of injuries related to sports and exercise. Common sport injuries include anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears, ankle sprains, muscle cramps, and shin splints. Sports medicine doctors are trained to restore function to injured patients, so they can get moving again as soon as possible. Demand for sports medicine devices has increased considerably, owing to active participation of athletes in various sports across different countries. Various aspects of sports medicine such as indulging in sports activities for fitness, recommendations for physical training, and sports injury prevention treatment further contribute toward the market growth.

Rise in incidence of sports-related injuries in the young population majorly drives the growth of the sports medicine devices market. Moreover, sports injuries have become highly prevalent among the young population, owing to increase in participation in sports. In addition, increase in initiatives by governments of various countries to promote sports activities and rise in demand for minimally invasive surgeries boost the market growth. Furthermore, easily accessible and advanced treatment products related to sports medicine for quick easy recovery fuel the demand for sports medicine. However, lack of skilled professionals as well as inappropriate administration and guidelines in the field of sports medicine hamper the growth of the market. Conversely, rising influx of athletes and technological advancements in sports medicine are expected to offer remunerative opportunities for the North America sports medicine market players.

SPORTS MEDICINE: Take heart from latest COVID-19-related news | John Doherty

Dr. Sean Swearingen is a cardiologist with Community Care Network in Munster, who works with the athletic department at Purdue Northwest. He explained what “mild” symptoms of COVID-19 are and what they are not.

“It is symptoms that are not in any way inhibiting their day-to-day function and they are for less than 10 days,” he said, “then that is what falls in the category of mild symptoms and they don’t need any further cardiac workup. From the patients I have (had tested), they haven’t had to be hospitalized but they have had relatively significant symptoms where they have been out of commission for several days, haven’t been able to attend their online classes (because) they’ve been so fatigued. To me, I would consider that moderate symptoms.”

Symptomatic or not, cardiac tested or not, all athletes who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 need to be cautious as they return to sport, according to Swearingen.

While I questioned the Big Ten’s 21-day minimum in comparison to the ACC’s 10-day minimum in this space earlier this month, Swearingen finds it more than reasonable.

“The 21-day Big Ten protocol (allows) for a week-long ramp period in the final week,” he explained. “I am a big supporter of this — a gradual monitored increase in activity allows for another layer of safety so that players can be monitored for signs and symptoms before they are putting themselves at risk in full-on competition. The monitored physical activity is just as important as the testing itself and it seems like a lot of people are ignoring that final part in the guideline, the gradual increase in activity.”

UNC partners with fitness nonprofit to support youth sports

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina is partnering with the National Fitness Foundation in its work to raise awareness and funding for youth sports and physical-education programs.

Foundation executive director Clay Walker said the partnership announced Wednesday is the first for an NCAA institution. The congressionally chartered nonprofit offers grants and training with the goal of improving youth health through fitness and sports.

Athletics director Bubba Cunningham said UNC is still developing plans, such as possibly having coaches running instructional clinics – virtually amid the coronavirus pandemic or eventually in-person — for adults coaching local youth teams.

“They’ll show up if the assistant basketball coach shows up or the assistant baseball coach goes and works with the little league coaches,” said Cunningham, adding that UNC will partner with a local fundraising group benefitting youth sports programs in areas with limited resources.

Walker said the UNC partnership is a “pilot model” with the goal of expanding to other NCAA schools for “direct local impact.” The foundation’s partnerships include the NFL’s Los Angeles Chargers, AAU and private companies.

SPORTS MEDICINE: Hamstrung by incomplete therapy | John Doherty

That conclusion was bolstered by the fact that only hamstring grafts tore among the Delaware subjects. Those with that type of graft had been allowed to return to sport four months sooner than those whose graft came from the patellar tendon. The latter traditionally takes longer because it is often more painful. Yet, that extra time probably allows the graft to more fully mature.

In short, at least for the females in the Delaware study, the culprit was incomplete rehabilitation.

A study just released online by Sports Health blamed the same for poor performance upon return to sport after a hamstring strain. Conducted by Australian investigators, the study looked at professional soccer, rugby, and Australian Rules football players who suffered hamstring strains over the course of one season and who had played at least five games prior to injury and at least five games after returning.

The researchers were motivated by a hamstring injury rate of 17% in all of those sports in Australia each year, the highest rate for any lower extremity muscle group.

A total of 15 players qualified for the study and the focus of the study was on their ability to sprint upon returning to play. The study determined that seven of the 15 could run just as fast for just as long after the injury but seven others were significantly impaired in their ability to maintain top speed for the remainder of the season. One of the subjects was actually better.
