Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to investigate injury incidence and patterns in female and male floorball players of different ages compared with matched controls. This study involved all floorball players in Sweden and licensed during 2010–2012, and matched controls selected from Sweden’s Total Population Register. Injury diagnoses were acquired from national health care registers. The cohort comprised 148,372 players and 614,678 controls, with the median age 13 (range, 6‒69) years. In most age groups, players were at increased risk of traumatic injury, particularly knee and eye injuries. The incidence of cruciate ligament injury increased steeply from the ages of 13 years in girls and 16 years in boys, and was more than 7 times higher in female players aged ≥ 16 years than in controls. The risk of eye injury for floorball players compared to controls was increased from the age of 10 years in male players and approximately doubled from the age of 13 years; in adult female players this risk was more than 6 times higher than in controls. Development and implementation of injury prevention measures are essential so that floorball players can safely practice their sport. Given the increased risk of injuries seen also in young players, such measures should be applied in all age categories.

Abstract [en]

Background: 

The purpose of this study was to comprehensively review the scientific research on floorball at the competitive and recreational levels according to field of study.

Methods: 

Full articles containing original data on floorball that had been published in English in peer-reviewed journals were considered for inclusion.

Results: 

Of 75 articles screened, 19 were included in this systematic review. One article each was identified in the fields of sports management and sports psychology, and the remaining 17 articles were in the field of sports medicine. Injury epidemiology in floorball players was the most thoroughly examined topic of research. To date, no research has been performed on the incidence of floorball-related injury, or any aspect of the sport, in children and adolescents.

Conclusion: 

Collaborative research among sports science disciplines is needed to identify strategies to reduce the incidence of injury and enhance the performance of licensed floorball players. Despite the increasing popularity of floorball in recent years, surprisingly little research has examined this sport.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna rapport var att ta reda på den befintliga forskning som finns inom innebandy. En litteratursökning genomfördes i databaser inom områden idrott, hälsa, medicin, pedagogik och psykologi. Sökningen identifierade 76 arbeten och efter granskning inkluderades sammanlagd 25 publicerade artiklar i sammanställning. En artikel hittades i området sportmanagement och en i idrottspsykologi. Resterande artiklar representerade det idrottsmedicinska området, varav 14 var inom området traumatologisk forskning, åtta artiklar inom området idrottsfysiologi samt en i området biomekanik. Det fanns främst studier om skadefrekvens hos licenserade innebandyspelare. Utifrån denna sammanställning kan man dra slutsatsen att den vetenskapliga informationen inom området innebandy är begränsad. Värt att notera är att det föreligger ett stort intresse för att påbörja forskning inom innebandy då majoriteten av de arbeten som exkluderades på grund av att de inte var publicerade i vetenskapliga tidskrifter var studentarbeten. Sammanfattningsvis finns det ett stort framtida behov av att fortsätta med studier gällande skadeprevention, men även att undersöka sporten på tvärvetenskapligt på flera olika områden så som pedagogik, psykologi, sociologi och medicin. Det finns även stort behov av studier riktad för barn och ungdomar.

Abstract [en]

Background: Osteoporosis is a skeletal disease that affects one out of every two women and one out of every five men. The clinical significance of this disease lies in the associated increased risk of fractures that mainly affect the femoral neck, spine, and wrist. One of the strongest risk factors for low-energy fractures is low bone mineral density (BMD, g/cm2). The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between BMD, self-perceived health, and lifestyle factors in a well-defined cohort of middle-aged men and women.

Methods: The Västerbotten Intervention Project (VIP) is a study that has been ongoing in Västerbotten since 1985. All people in Västerbotten who are 40, 50 and 60 years of age are offered a comprehensive health survey in which a questionnaire is completed and blood pressure and blood lipids are measured. BMD has been measured in the Sports Medicine Unit in Umeå since 1991. As of December 31, 2006, 4,333 women and 2,320 men had been evaluated.  Of these, 1,595 were examined as part of the VIP before their BMD was measured, and these subjects included in the present study.  

Results: The mean age of the investigated cohort was 57 years (range 30-74). After adjusting for age, weight, sex, and follow-up time, self-perceived health (Beta = 0.08, p<0.001), training[ED1]  (Beta = 0.11, p<0.001), snow shoveling (Beta = 0.07, p=0.001), and smoking more than 15 cigarettes per day (Beta =- 0.05, p=0.04) were found to be related to femoral neck BMD. Only self-perceived health, age, and weight were found to be related to spine BMD. Self-perceived health was found to be related to some of the lifestyle factors that were significantly related to BMD, such as training (r = 0.14, p <0.001) and snow shoveling (Beta = 0.15, p <0.001).

Conclusion: In this cohort study, several lifestyle factors related to self-perceived health were also found to be related to bone mineral density in a well-defined cohort of middle-aged men and women.

Abstract [en]

Background: Physical activity has been recommended for the prevention and even treatment of osteoporosis because it potentially can increase bone mass and strength during childhood and adolescence and reduce the risk of falling in older populations. However, few reports have systematically investigated the effect of physical activity on bone in men and women of different ages.

Purpose: The goal of this study was to review the literature relating to the effect of physical activity on bone mineral density in men and women of various ages.

Method: This review systematically evaluates the evidence for the effect of physical activity on bone mineral density. Cochrane and Medline databases were searched for relevant articles, and the selected articles were evaluated.

Results: The review found evidence to support the effectiveness of weight bearing physical activity on bone accrual during childhood and adolescence. The effect of weight bearing physical activity was site-specific. In contrast, the role of physical activity in adulthood is primarily geared toward maintaining bone mineral density. The evidence for a protective effect of physical activity on bone is not as solid as that for younger individuals.

Conclusions: The effect of weight bearing physical activity is seen in sites that are exposed to loading. There also seems to be a continuous adaptive response in bone to loading. Additional randomized, controlled studies are needed to evaluate the effect of physical activity in the elderly.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of the present study was to investigate the influence of different types of weight bearing physical activity on bone mineral density (BMD, g/cm(2)) and evaluate any residual benefits after the active sports career. Beginning at 17 years of age, BMD was measured 5 times, during 12 years, in 19 badminton players, 48 ice hockey players, and 25 controls. During the active career, badminton players gained significantly more BMD compared to ice hockey players at all sites: in their femoral neck (mean difference (Delta) 0.06 g/cm(2), p=0.04), humerus (Delta 0.06 g/cm(2), p=0.01), lumbar spine (Delta 0.08 g/cm(2), p=0.01), and their legs (Delta 0.05 g/cm(2), p=0.003), after adjusting for age at baseline, changes in weight, height, and active years. BMD gains in badminton players were higher also compared to in controls at all sites (Delta 0.06-0.17 g/cm(2), p<0.01 for all). Eleven badminton players and 37 ice hockey players stopped their active career a mean of 6 years before the final follow-up. Both these groups lost significantly more BMD at the femoral neck and lumbar spine compared to the control group (Delta 0.05-0.12 g/cm(2), p<0.05 for all). At the final follow-up, badminton players had significantly higher BMD of the femoral neck, humerus, lumbar spine, and legs (Delta 0.08-0.20 g/cm(2), p<0.01 for all) than both ice hockey players and controls. In summary, the present study may suggest that badminton is a more osteogenic sport compared to ice hockey. The BMD benefits from previous training were partially sustained with reduced activity.
