Lifetime Prevalence Of Non-Melanoma And Melanoma Skin Cancer In Australia Surfers, James Furness, Mike Climstein, Wayne F. Hing, Joe Walsh Sep 2016

Lifetime Prevalence Of Non-Melanoma And Melanoma Skin Cancer In Australia Surfers, James Furness, Mike Climstein, Wayne F. Hing, Joe Walsh

Wayne Hing

Introduction

Surfing is one of the most popular aquatic activities in Australia with an estimated 2.7 million recreational surfers 1 however, Australia has long been recognized as having the highest incidence of melanoma in the world. As a result the expected risk of skin cancer in surfers due to long periods of exposure to ultraviolet radiation is of great concern 2. The aim of this study was to investigate the lifetime prevalence of non-melanoma skin cancers (NMSCs), (basal cell carcinoma (BCC), squamous cell carcinoma (SCC)), and melanoma skin cancers (MSCs) in Australian surfers.

Methods

Given the geographic distribution of ...

Clinical Methods To Quantify Trunk Mobility In An Elite Male Surfing Population, James Furness, Michael Climstein, Jeremy Sheppard, Allan Abbott, Wayne Hing Aug 2016

Clinical Methods To Quantify Trunk Mobility In An Elite Male Surfing Population, James Furness, Michael Climstein, Jeremy Sheppard, Allan Abbott, Wayne Hing

James Furness

Background

Thoracic mobility in the sagittal and horizontal planes are key requirements in the sport of surfing; however to date the normal values of these movements have not yet been quantified in a surfing population.

Objectives

To develop a reliable method to quantify thoracic mobility in the sagittal plane; to assess the reliability of an existing thoracic rotation method, and quantify thoracic mobility in an elite male surfing population.

Design

Clinical Measurement, reliability and comparative study.

Methods

A total of 30 subjects were used to determine the reliability component. 15 elite surfers were used as part of a comparative analysis ...
