Dissemintation of scientifically based information about protein supplementation in commercial gyms is needed in order to ensure the correct use of protein supplements in this environment
Changes in the composition of saliva, electromyographic activity, plasma catecholamines, and other variables signal the CNS to coordinate a response to exercise beyond the anaerobic threshold, but more research is needed to elucidate the mechanisms of this complex coordination
Professional football players believe the rsik of injury differs according to surface type, players perceive artificial turf as most likely leading to non-contact injury, longer recovery times, and greater muscle and joint soreness
Ana Peinado, Jesus Rojo, Francisco Calderon and Nicola Maffulli review how the central nervous system controls and regulates the physiological response to increasing exercise upon reaching the anaerobic threshold, and discuss the possible mechanisms involved in this regulation.BMC Sports Science, Medicine and Rehabilitation 2014, 6:17
In this review, Dennis Caine, Laura Purcell, and Nicola Maffulli consider current research on epidemiology, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of young athlete's vulnerability to injury. The authors focus on ACL injury, concussion, and physeal injury as three potentially serious types of injury affecting child and adolescent athletes.BMC Sports Science, Medicine and Rehabilitation 2014, 6:22
BMC Sports Science, Medicine and Rehabilitation is an open access, peer reviewed journal that considers articles on all aspects of sports medicine and the exercise sciences, including rehabilitation, traumatology, cardiology, physiology, and nutrition.
The journal also incorporates the now closed Sports Medicine, Arthroscopy, Rehabilitation, Therapy & Technology (SMARTT), retaining the broad scope of this journal and some of the Editorial Board.
BMC Sports Science, Medicine and Rehabilitation is part of the BMC series which publishes subject-specific journals focused on the needs of individual research communities across all areas of biology and medicine. We offer an efficient, fair and friendly peer review service, and are committed to publishing all sound science, provided that there is some advance in knowledge presented by the work.
BMC series - open, inclusive and trusted.
Sports Medicine, Arthroscopy, Rehabilitation, Therapy, Technology (SMARTT)
The journal Sports Medicine, Arthroscopy, Rehabilitation, Therapy, Technology (SMARTT), has transferred to the BMC series of journals and has been re-launched as BMC Sports Science, Medicine and Rehabilitation. All previous content published in SMARTT is available from the BMC Sports Science, Medicine and Rehabilitation website.
Michael Carmont is Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon working at the Princess Royal Hospital, Telford and Northern General Hospital, Sheffield. He is interested in sports injuries of the knee, foot and ankle, and has a specialist interest in anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction and the management of Achilles tendon rupture. He is the Section Editor for the Surgery, traumatology, and rehabilitation section of BMC Sports Science, Medicine and Rehabilitation. Read more about the key issues in this field and the manuscripts he would like to see submitted to the section in his interview with the journal.
