I hope everyone made it home safely from ACSM's Annual Meeting. I will admit that I probably needed a few days to recover after the meeting – multiple talks, meetings, and socializing with colleagues makes for a great but long week. It was another awesome event with too many great talks to attend in not enough time, if only cloning technology improved quicker! I'm already excited and looking forward to next year's meeting – see you in San Francisco!
The June 2019 issue of Current Sports Medicine Reports covers training, prevention, and rehabilitation topics, in addition to our regular columns. The Training, Prevention, and Rehabilitation section recruited by Section Editor Jonathan T. Finnoff, DO, FACSM, is AMAZING! The articles cover fantastic topics and you will learn the latest about the significance of asymptomatic tendon pathology in athletes; running dose and risk of developing lower extremity osteoarthritis; musculoskeletal simulation tools for understanding mechanisms of lower limb sports injuries; evaluation, rehabilitation, and prevention of ankle sprains; use of blood flow restriction training for post-operative rehabilitation; and prehabilitation and rehabilitation for upper extremity in throwing sports with an emphasis on lacrosse.
This issue has a very timely and interesting special communication entitled, "Transgender Policy in Sport, a Review of Current Policy and Commentary of the Challenges of Policy Creation," penned by Benjamin James Ingram, MD and Connie Lynn Thomas, MD. You won't want to miss this one.
To round out the issue, Scanning Sports Medicine covers the latest clinical research published by the American College of Sports Medicine and CAQ Review covers gastrointestinal issues in athletes.
This edition has an interesting article from our international colleagues. The FIMS: International Perspectives column takes a closer look at redefining sport based on the Russian doping experience. Please take a look it is very interesting.
As always, please let me know if there are clinical topics you would like to see covered in Current Sports Medicine Reports.
