Despite various contributing factors, session rating of perceived exertion has the potential to affect a large proportion of the global sporting and clinical communities since it is an inexpensive and simple tool that is highly practical and accurately measures an athlete’s outcome of training or competition. Its simplicity can help optimize performance and reduce negative outcomes of hard training in elite athletes.

ROM, SEN, and AHI on dynamic balance. Conclusion This study demonstrates that foot characteristics may play a role in YBT-LQ CS. Altered SEN, weight-bearing dorsiflexion, and perhaps arch height, appear to be contributing factors to YBT-LQ CS. Future research could expand on these findings by focusing

Low back pain (LBP) is a multifactorial dysfunction, with one of the potential contributing factors being the hip joint. Currently, research investigating the examination and conservative treatment of LBP has focused primarily on the lumbar spine. The objective of this clinical commentary is to discuss the potential link between hip impairments and LBP using current best evidence and the concept of regional interdependence as tools to guide decision making and offer ideas for future research.

This thematic article is based upon personal reflections and tangible evidence that the emphasis in sport pedagogy has shifted away from doing research on instruction and toward doing research on teachers. Several contributing factors to this trend are discussed along with implications for continued change in the patterns of sport pedagogy. Suggestions are made that could alter these patterns and address how to conduct research on teaching that is both meaningful to practice and valued in the academy. Finally, there is a call to question the role of traditional sport disciplines and subdisciplines in the conduct of professional practice and the conceptualization of sport pedagogy.

Clinical Question: What personal and environmental characteristics are associated with burnout in athletic trainers, as measured by the Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI) and Athletic Training Burnout Inventory (ATBI)? Clinical Bottom Line: There is strong evidence suggesting that personal and environmental factors are associated with burnout in athletic trainers, as measured by the MBI and ATBI. While it is difficult to identify a single contributing factor that increases the athletic trainer’s perception of burnout, athletic trainers should be aware of the characteristics associated with the condition and take appropriate action to reduce the risk of burnout.
