Clinical Spino-Pelvic Parameters in Skiers and Non-Athletes
Carl Todd MSc, DO*, Anna Swärd MD, Cecilia Agnvall PT, Leif Swärd MD, PhD, Jon Karlsson MD, PhD, Adad Baranto MD, PhD
The human spine has several physiological curvatures that occur in the sagittal plane, a cranial and caudal lordotic curve that is separated by the kyphotic curve. It has been suggested that the spinal curvatures act to assist with force distribution throughout the spinal column. Variables such as growth, balance, posture and sporting activities are all associated with the development and changes within these curves.
Transition from Education to the Workplace: A Grounded Theory Investigation of Early Career Athletic Trainers
Christopher J Nightingale EdD, ATC, LAT*, Barbara Blackstone MS, ATC, LAT, Stephen A Butterfield, PhD
A better understanding of how novice certified athletic trainers develop autonomy will provide insight into how education programs and employers can prepare new athletic trainers for transition into the field. The objective of this research is to examine early career athletic trainers (those with 1-4 years of experience) about perceptions of their educations and the first year of their careers to gain insight into self-perceived successes and challenges.
The Effect of Core Muscle Strength Training on Lung Function Middle and Long Distance Athletes
Worasit Seaburin, Parichat Rirermkul, Ashira Hiruntrakul*
The respiratory muscle training is a form of lung functions’ development. However, the main breathing muscle training is quite difficult because the breathing muscle is tiny and its position is complex which is harder to do the training. The core muscles are the accessory muscles in respiratory system. The muscles are bigger and easier to design training. The objective of this study is to determine the effects of core muscle strength training on lung function of the middle and the long distance athletes after the 12-week training.
