Anterior Cruciate Ligament injuries on the rise globally

footballer painIn the US around 100,000-200,000 Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) ruptures occur every year, although since these figures are provided by colleges and high schools in the US, they do not include injuries outside formalised sport and so the actual number may be even higher.

Here in Australia there has been a steep rise in ACL injuries over the past 15 years – a 70% hike, with a disproportionate number of these occurring in children under the age of 14.

You might think that ACL injury is more common in contact sports and caused by contact, but in fact most (~70%) occur in non-contact situations, when jumping or turning sharply. Sports that have higher rates of ACL injury include soccer, basketball, volleyball and skiing.

American Football NFL Players Recover Faster With Q Magnets

The 2017 American football season is almost here…..finally. Camp starts for some of the finest gladiators in the NFL.  In training camp, there is lots of hitting and explosive work.  This inevitably results in a wide variety of injuries.

As a healthcare practitioner, you watch the guys you work with depart for their respective teams.  At that point they are out of your hands and if anything happens, there is nothing you can do personally.  That’s why I make sure the players have their own Q Magnets when they leave.

Paul “The Gentleman” Bradley is an All-American Wrestler and Mixed Martial Arts fighter. Full-contact combat sports bring significant stresses on the body and Paul explains how Q Magnets have been a useful tool in helping to recover from injury.

 

Even for an old injury such as tennis elbow, simply use sports tape to secure a Q Magnet such as QF20-3 or QF28-3 over the tender point or as Paul does it, wear an arm brace and glue the magnet in underneath as shown in this video.

USA Rugby Sevens speedster Carlin Isles gives his verdict: “Q Magnets! Are a great tool man”…

This is an amazing story. I was at home watching the US Rugby team at the Rio Olympics with my daughter and remarked on an incredibly quick player; Carlin Isles. Once they get the ball to Carlin, he’s hard to catch. See him in action in the video below.

Little did I know at the time, thanks to Q Magnets, this same athlete from the other side of the world may not have even made the Olympic Games due to injury. According to his sports trainer/chiropractor, Dr Walker Scott who kindly sent this shout out from Carlin.
