American Journal of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation

American Journal of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Official Journal of the Association of Academic Physiatrists and the Asociación Médica Latinoamericana de Rehabilitación (A***R). American Journal of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation focuses on the practice, research and educational aspects of physical medicine and rehabilitation.

Monthly issues keep physiatrists up-to-date on the optimal functional restoration of patients with disabilities, physical treatment of neuromuscular impairments, the development of new rehabilitative technologies, and the use of electrodiagnostic studies. The Journal publishes cutting-edge basic and clinical research, clinical case reports and in-depth topical reviews of interest to rehabilitation professionals. Topics include prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal conditions, brain injury, spinal cord injury, cardiopulmonary disease, trauma, acute and chronic pain, amputation, prosthetics and orthotics, mobility, gait, and pediatrics as well as areas related to education and administration. Other important areas of interest include cancer rehabilitation, aging, and exercise. The Journal has recently published a series of articles on the topic of outcomes research. This well-established journal is the official scholarly publication of the Association of Academic Physiatrists (AAP).

The "8 Figure Jump Test" is an excellent knee test. Not only is stability and strength tested, but it is also tested whether the athlete or patient still feels insecure in the head.
“THE NONSENSE OF RETURN TO SPORTS TESTING” "Return to Sports" or "Return to Play" tests are often carried out in rehabilitation after knee injuries. In my opinion, all tests are completely pointless and have nothing to do with whether an athlete is able to compete again. We all know the various hop tests, isokinetic tests, stability tests and so on. The problem ... all these tests have nothing to do with any kind of sport. Have you ever seen an athlete do 3 jumps on one leg in a straight line? (3 hop test). Have you ever seen an athlete in sport perform powerful, isolated extension and flexion movements on their leg? If we are testing so much, why then still on average 22% of all ACL patients rupture their ACL on the operated or contralateral knee within 2 years? We claim that the sports testers are "functional", but they are not. They are not at all indicative of whether an athlete is able to compete again! Here are a few critical comments; 1. Do we know the mental state of the patient; does his knee feel 100% safe? 2. Has the athlete carried out a methodical strength and conditioning program at all, or has the physio carried out an "animation program". 3. Was he with an rehab trainer who deals with knee injuries every day or was he with a physio who sees 10-15 ACL operations per year? 4. If he did a test, did he actually do it correctly? In most cases, athletes will be tested after 10-15 minutes of warming up. If you do a test, you should tire the athlete totally, and then test! 5. Was he with a rehab trainer or physio had the optimal infrastructure for active rehabilitation? Or was he at a physio who has a bike, a treadmill and maybe a leg press ...? You can see there are some questions that are still open. If you work as a professional, if you are heading towards the final stages of rehab, every training session is a "return to sports" test! With your athletes on the football field or in the hall. Sprints, plyometrics, stop and go movements, intervals, agility drills under severe fatigue... These are "Return to Sports" tests!!
Top 10 practice drills for athletes and rehab The running ABC plays an important role in athletic training and rehabilitation. Running ABC exercises serve to improve your running style and coordination. In addition, as already mentioned, the running ABC plays an important role in the rehabilitation of injured athletes, in particular in injuries to the lower extremities (foot, knee and hip as well as in muscular injuries). - Instructions (in German) from 0 until 37 seconds - Demo starts at 37 seconds
