underlying mechanisms for the significantly greater PCS scores demonstrated by the Previously Injured group when compared with the Uninjured group. It remains unknown if the elevated PCS scores for those with a previous injury are related to insufficient rehabilitation, inconsistent return to play criteria

return to play. Further advantageous effects of cryotherapy are that it reduces edema, 3 muscle spasms, 4 muscle blood flow, 5 and muscle temperature. 6 These physiological effects combine to reduce injury-induced inflammation. 7 , 8 The application of cryotherapy may also have an immediate negative

The proposed mechanism underpinning such a strategy is that the increase in blood concentrations of the amino acids and related compounds found in collagen will support an

, 2018 ). In addition to this, it was clear that there is an urgent need for the design and implementation of return-to-play strategies for women after childbirth ( Elliott-Sale, 2018 ; Roberts & Kenttä, 2018 , Smith, 2018 ), no matter what level at which these women exercise or compete. Injury

. Current trends of ACL rehabilitation focus on regaining strength and functional movements for return to play goals. Clinicians tend to tailor therapy to patient-centered goals, such as being able to run, play a particular sport, or successfully perform activities of daily living. Unfortunately, 88% of

The only study to date examining the comparison between RT and PED used a single match split into quarters during an Australian Rules Football game, reporting HSR and SP as poorly valid during RT. 8 However, RT and PED

). This finding is in stark contrast to the recognition that 44% ( n  = 12/27) of the same IFs have sport-specific return–to-play concussion guidelines ( Mountjoy et al., 2018a ). The problems associated with RED-S resemble an iceberg: its true magnitude is largely hidden, and its devastating impact is
