On 11 March 2020, the WHO declared COVID-19, an infection produced by the virus SARS-CoV-2 with a wide range of symptoms ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness, as a pandemic.1 The health authorities and governments of several countries declared confinement measures to decelerate the propagation of the disease, which resulted in sport training and competition being suspended. Professional athletes have been unable to train as usual during home confinement, and it is thought that they will ...

Back pain is the greatest cause of disability and lost productivity worldwide.1 Back pain generates significant financial costs for society in developed countries, such as the USA, Japan, Europe and Australia (eg, US$80 billion per year in direct and indirect costs in the USA).2 Chronic low back pain (ie, ≥12 weeks’ duration) presents the greatest challenge: it generates the greatest proportion of economic burden due to back pain3 and affects 20% of the global population.4 Of these, approximatel...

Low-to-moderate altitude (2000–2500 m) training camps are an integral part of many athletes’ training programmes.1 Despite potential positive effects on performance, sojourning at altitude represents an important stress on the human body with transiently increased pulmonary and kidney stress, neuroendocrine dysregulation and immune perturbations.2 This highlights the importance of the careful planning and organisation of altitude training camps, which may be even more critical during the current...

Objective Current guidelines recommend precautionary disqualification from competitive sports in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). We assessed the incidence of cardiovascular events in a cohort of patients with HCM engaged in long-term exercise programmes and competitive sport. Methods We reviewed data on 88 consecutive athletes diagnosed with HCM, from 1997 to 2017; 92% male, 98% Caucasian, median age 31 (IQR: 19–44) years. All participated in regular exercise programmes and comp...

Background/aim There is a lack of consistency in return to sport (RTS) assessments, in particular hop tests to predict who will sustain a reinjury following anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. Inconsistent test battery content and methodological heterogeneity might contribute to variable associations between hop test performance and subsequent injury. Our aim was to investigate whether commonly used hop tests are administered in a consistent manner and in accordance with reported gu...

Objective To provide a consistently updated overview of the comparative effectiveness of treatments for Achilles tendinopathy. Design Living systematic review and network meta-analysis. Data sources Multiple databases including grey literature sources were searched up to February 2019. Study eligibility criteria Randomised controlled trials examining the effectiveness of any treatment in patients with both insertional and/or midportion Achilles tendinopathy. We excluded trials with 10 or fewer p...

COVID-19 healthcare personnel (HCP) use personal protective equipment (PPE; ie, isolation gowns, eye protection, facemasks and respirators) to safely perform their medical duties. However, PPE creates a microenvironment around the skin due to a higher thermal resistance and lower water vapour permeability of the materials being used compared with the normal clothing ensemble of HCP.1 Consequently, heat loss capacity via the skin surface is greatly reduced. The metabolic energy expenditure from r...
I live with a chronic, incurable disease called rheumatoid arthritis (RA). According to my healthcare system, this makes me a patient. But I can tell you I consider myself a lot of other things before I introduce myself to anyone as a patient or as a person who lives with RA. In fact those words (patient, person living with RA) are the ones I choose only when I’m in the healthcare system or when I’m part of some type of project that includes a patient perspective. Those words make me feel less e...

We recently published1 a network meta-analysis (NMA) on the effect of different modes of exercise training in patients with chronic non-specific low back pain in the British Journal of Sports Medicine . We respond here to the questions posed by Maher et al .2 The authors of the letter commented that potential effect-modifying covariates need more investigation (evaluation of transitivity). As per NMA guidelines,3 we investigated potential effect-modifying covariates. Baseline pain and disability...
