Epidemiology Of Injuries In Stand-Up Paddle Boarding, James Furness, Olayinka Olorunnife, Ben Schram, Michael Climstein, Wayne Hing Jun 2017

Epidemiology Of Injuries In Stand-Up Paddle Boarding, James Furness, Olayinka Olorunnife, Ben Schram, Michael Climstein, Wayne Hing

Ben Schram

Background: Stand-up paddle boarding (SUP) is a recreational activity and sport that has grown exponentially, with participation increasing from 1.1 million in 2010 to 2.8 million in 2014 in the United States alone. Despite this growth in participation, SUP remains underresearched with regard to injury epidemiology. Purpose: To investigate injury epidemiology (severity, location, type, mechanism) in SUP.Study Design:Descriptive epidemiology study. Methods: An open-source online survey was administered to active SUP participants internationally. The survey captured information relevant to demographics, participation, and injury history over the past 12 months. Results: Of 240 participants included in the data ...

Effects Of Water-Based Exercise On Bone Health Of Middle-Aged And Older Adults: A Systematic Review And Meta-Analysis, Vini Simas, Wayne Hing, Rodney Pope, Mike Climstein May 2017

Effects Of Water-Based Exercise On Bone Health Of Middle-Aged And Older Adults: A Systematic Review And Meta-Analysis, Vini Simas, Wayne Hing, Rodney Pope, Mike Climstein

Rodney P Pope

BACKGROUND: Age-related bone loss is a major health concern. Only exercises associated with high-impact and mechanical loading have been linked to a positive effect on bone turnover; however, these types of exercises may not always be appropriate for middle-aged and older adults due to physical decline or chronic disorders such as osteoarthritis. Water-based exercise (WBE) has been shown to affect different components of physical fitness, has lower risks of traumatic fracture, and applies less stress to joints. However, the effects of WBE on bone health are unclear. OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to explore whether WBE is effective in preventing age-related ...

The Physiological, Musculoskeletal And Psychological Effects Of Stand Up Paddle Boarding, Ben Schram, Wayne F. Hing, Michael Climstein Oct 2016

The Physiological, Musculoskeletal And Psychological Effects Of Stand Up Paddle Boarding, Ben Schram, Wayne F. Hing, Michael Climstein

Wayne Hing

Background: Stand up paddle boarding (SUP) is a rapidly growing sport and recreational activity where anecdotal evidence exists for its proposed health, fitness and injury rehabilitation benefits. While limited scientific evidence exists to substantiate these claims, previous studies have shown that high levels of fitness, strength and balance exists amongst participants of this sport. The purpose of this study was to conduct a training intervention on a group of previously untrained individuals to ascertain the potential of SUP on various health parameters. Methods: An intervention study was conducted where after being tested initially, subjects were left for 6 weeks to ...
