We've been hard at work getting the April issue of Co-Kinetic off to the printers this week and we're pretty confident that you'll love the end result!
Here's what you can look forward to in our April issue:

Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries are one of the worst knee injuries to sustain in sport, with less than 50% of athletes returning to sport in the first year following surgery and high rates of reinjury. The process for the reduction of ACL injury risk or rehabilitation following ACL repair are essentially the same. This article describes the risk factors for ACL injury, tools for injury/injury risk assessment and strategies for rehabilitation and injury prevention. View article here.

This article is Part 3 in a series about femoroacetabular impingement (FAI). The author describes management considerations of lumbo-pelvic-femoral dysfunction in relation to FAI. This will allow the reader to apply Postural Restoration Institute® non-manual techniques when managing such conditions as FAI.

This article discusses the role that the relatively new treatment modality of radial shockwave therapy (RSWT) can play in rehabilitation of musculoskeletal disorders. The study presents empirical evidence on the benefits of RSWT in the short term for treating lower limb injuries as measured by perceived reduction in pain and increased functional mobility. This article highlights how effectively RSWT can be used in the early treatment of musculoskeletal disorders and the importance and continued use of traditional rehab modalities following RSWT.

This article outlines a practical and evidence-based framework that enables individuals who support athletes to promote positive responses to performance pressure. The ability to deal with pressure is one of the most important things an athlete can develop, and in this article I introduce and explain the concept of ‘tipping the balance’. This concept offers simple and effective strategies for enabling athletes to react well to pressure, bringing together contemporary research evidence and practical experience.
By Jamie Salter MSc, CSCS ASCC
Football (soccer) is one of the most popular sports in the world but in the UK we have been slower to adopt structured S&C based practices than other high profile sports such as rugby, golf and athletics. Although coaches, players and parents all realise that the modern game is more physically demanding than ever, we’re not prioritising physical development any more than we have done in the past. This article outlines some of the potential reasons for why this may be the case and explains some of the barriers contributing to the situation with the goal of helping you as practitioners, overcome these within your practice. We’ve put forward practical strategies to help practitioners engage coaches and players in S&C practices and enhance the physical development of youth football players.

This article is part of a series on manual therapy and takes the reader step-by-step through the process of clinical reasoning and how it aids the identification of the tissue that is the source of the patient’s problems. Combined with a knowledge of common clinical conditions, this process allows the therapist to predict a diagnosis, to direct appropriate treatment at the source of symptoms, and helps in the creation of relevant rehabilitation processes for restoring full functional capacity.
