Research output: Contribution to journalEditorial

1 Citation (Scopus)


Thompson and colleagues start off the June featured articles with a study indicating that eating disorders in female athletes do not necessarily stop with retirement from sport. Büttner’s team, in a prospective cohort study report, suggest that a significant proportion of amateur athletes who suffer concussions will not return to their pre-injury sport levels. In the physical activity space, Khan, Mandic and Uddin describe the relationship between active school commuting, physical activity and sedentary behaviour across 80 countries.
In this month’s sport and exercise medicine section, Shaban and co-workers describe a community acquired MRSA infection outbreak in a professional football club. Milgrom and co-workers outline evidence-based guidelines for diagnosis and treatment of medial tibial stress fractures and their differentiation from shin splints. In the final article of this section, Dai, Wang, Hu and Ao in a systematic review of randomised controlled trials outline a rehabilitation regimen for non-surgical treatment of Achilles tendon ruptures.
