Abstract Bone stress injuries (BSI) are common among distance runners and research investigations examining risk factors for BSI among men are limited. Therefore, investigations are needed to determine if men with a history of BSI have skeletal properties that may heighten BSI incidence. Objectives To analyze differences in bone density, bone geometry, and estimates of bone strength in male runners with and without a BSI history. Design Cross-sectional. Methods We recruited 36 male distance runn...

Abstract Background Characterizing the effects of physical activity (PA) and cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) on mortality is challenging because the causal relationship between PA, CRF, and other cardiovascular risk factors is unclear. Methods To better understand the effects of PA and CRF on mortality, we re-analyzed data from 42,373 participants in the Aerobics Center Longitudinal Study (ACLS) using a modified version of VanderWeele's four-way causal effect decomposition method. The method was...

OBJECTIVES: Selection bias is a well-known concern in research on older adults. We discuss two common forms of selection bias in aging research: (1) survivor bias and (2) bias due to loss to follow-up. Our objective was to review these two forms of selection bias in geriatrics research. In clinical aging research, selection bias is a particular concern because all participants must have survived to old age, and be healthy enough, to take part in a research study in geriatrics. DESIGN: We demonst...

Evidence-based medicine (EBM) calls on clinicians to incorporate the ‘best available evidence’ into clinical decision-making. For decisions regarding treatment, the best evidence is that which determines the causal effect of treatments on the clinical outcomes of interest. Unfortunately, research often provides evidence where associations are not due to cause-and-effect, but rather due to non-causal reasons. These non-causal associations may provide valid evidence for diagnosis or prognosis, but...

In any research study, variables may be associated due to either ‘cause and effect’ or alternative reasons that are not causal. While all causal relationships are associational, not all associational relationships are causal, that is, correlation does not equal causation. Sports medicine clinicians are generally interested in causal relationships because they want to know whether an intervention will prevent, treat or rehabilitate injury. However, many sport medicine studies do not distinguish b...
