The new issue and a podcast to boot

jsm-podcast-bg-12016 is coming to a close, and that’s really hard for me to believe.  November brings with it our last issue of the year, and it is a good one……a good way to close out a memorable year.

Our highlighted Critical Review article this month concerns the subject of risk factors for lower extremity injury among high school athletes.  The lead author is James (Jimmy) Onate, PhD, ATC, FANA, from the Ohio State University.

The Buckeyes publish frequently in our pages — co-authors on this paper include former ACSM president Tom Best and current OSU Head Team Physician Jim Borchers, both of who are well-represented in the pages of CJSM.  Jimmy Onate is another in that lineage of great clinician-researchers.

I had an enjoyable conversation with Jimmy on the pros/cons of using the pre-participation evaluation (PPE) as a potential tool for screening high school athletes for risk of lower extremity injury.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
