Book Description :

This is the first book of its kind to focus solely on the female athlete triad - its origins, its recognition, and most importantly, its management. Since the symptoms themselves cover a range of medical specialties, chapters are written by experts in a number of relevant fields - sports medicine, orthopedics, endocrinology, and pediatrics - with an eye toward overall care of the young female athlete. Additionally, each chapter includes suggestions on how to educate and communicate with young athletes and their parents, as well as trainers and coaches, on how to manage the illness outside of the direct clinical setting. The female athlete triad is often seen in sports where low body weight is emphasized, such as gymnastics, figure skating, and running, though it can appear in any sport or activity. The interrelated symptoms - eating disorders, amenorrhea, and low bone mass - exist on a spectrum of severity and are serious and potentially life-threatening if not properly treated. Psychological problems, in addition to medical ones, are not uncommon. The Female Athlete Triad: A Clinical Guide discusses all of these areas for a well-rounded and in-depth approach to the phenomenon and will be a useful reference for any clinician working with female athletes across the lifespan.

Book Description :

Of all the important factors that must be considered when assessing and treating an athlete, the impact of patient sex is perhaps the most critical, yet historically has often been neglected. The "same injury" in a male patient may present differently, sometimes in subtle ways, than in a female patient and may require a different treatment approach. The Female Athlete, edited by Dr. Rachel Frank, provides concise, expert coverage of the ways in which common sports medicine injuries present in female patients versus male patients, describing recent literature analyzing sex differences in injury patterns and available treatment options. Provides a comprehensive review of key areas of importance related to care for women in sports, including the differences in care and treatment for male and female patients. Covers many of the most common injuries female athletes face, including ACL injuries, shoulder instability, concussion, stress fractures, female overuse injuries, and more. Considers prevention strategies, nutritional recommendations, as well as exercise recommendations for women during pregnancy.

Book Description :

Since the 1970s North American women and girls have engaged in every sport that interests them and have become champions in their fields. One of the consequences of this success is ongoing criticism, not of how they perform, but of how they look. In Polygendered and Ponytailed, Dayna Daniels argues that the femininity-masculinity divide prevents women athletes from being taken seriously in their sports. As long as sports remains a male domain, girls and women who participate will be viewed as either masculine to begin with or masculine through their involvement. By embracing a polygendered way of being, which emphasizes the similarities between women and men, female athletes will be given the chance to achieve their full sporting potential and be judged for their performance, rather than their appearance.

Book Description :

"Introduction: The female athlete triad is characterized by disordered eating, menstrual dysfunction, and low bone mineral density (BMD). The triad affects many active females and can lead to long-term health problems if left untreated. Because collegiate athletes are especially susceptible to the triad, it is recommended that collegiate coaches be aware of prevention strategies, risk factors, symptoms, health consequences, and treatment procedures associated with the triad. The purpose of this study was to investigate the level of knowledge that NCAA Division II head coaches of female sports (basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, softball, tennis, track and field, volleyball) have regarding the female athlete triad. Methods: A 27-item survey was administered through an online survey service to all NCAA Division II head coaches of the most highly sponsored female sports. The survey included 15 statements about the triad to be characterized as either true of false. Coaches earned one point for each statement that was correctly identified as true or false to determine their knowledge score on a 15-point scale. The knowledge scores were compared by coaches' sex (male, female), sport type (lean, non-lean, both), and experience (limited, moderate, considerable). A 2 x 3 x 3 ANOVA was used to analyze these independent variables. Results: General knowledge of the triad among coaches appeared to be at a high level, but knowledge of its signs and symptoms was limited. Male and female coaches had similar knowledge scores. Coaches of lean sports had significantly higher knowledge scores than coaches of non-lean sports. Coaches with moderate experience had significantly greater knowledge scores that inexperienced coaches. Discussion and Conclusion: Regular, detailed education for coaches on the triad with an emphasis on recognizing symptoms is recommended. To ensure full comprehension, coaches should also be tested regularly on relevant material"--Abstract.

Book Description :

The Female Athlete Triad (Triad) is the three interrelated conditions of low energy availability with or without disordered eating, menstrual irregularity or amenorrhea, and osteoporosis, and is a health concern that affects active women of all ages who participate in physical activity. Although associations have been found between the individual components of the Triad, research is still limited on all Triad components occurring simultaneously in athletes. In addition, research on the college-age female population is currently limited. The purpose of this study was to examine Triad risk factors in the college-age female athlete population compared to the non-athlete population, specifically focusing on the risk factor of inadequate energy availably and eating disorders. A non-experimental cross-sectional study design was conducted during the spring semester to assess presence of the Triad risk factors among females attending a Midwestern university. A total for 1537 female students participated in this study. An online survey composed of the LEAF-Q questionnaire and the EAT-26 questionnaire was used to assess the risk factors for the Female Athlete Triad and risk for eating disorders, respectively. Independent samples t-tests and chi square tests were used to analyze differences in risk for low energy availability and risk for eating disorders between the two groups of participants. There were no significant differences between the athlete and non-athlete groups, in risk for the Female Athlete Triad as measured by the mean LEAF-Q scores. However, within the athlete group, associations were found in number of training days, age of first menstrual period, and amenorrhea for three consecutive months. Results showed no significant (p =0.74) differences between athlete and non-athlete groups in risk for eating disorders using mean EAT-26 scores. More non-athletes (20%) were associated with avoiding foods with carbohydrate content, while a higher number of athletes (4%) were associated with having the impulse to vomit after meals. Additionally, a significant (p = 0.01) difference was found between the athlete and non-athlete groups in their response to the question, "Gone on eating binges where you feel that you may not be able to stop?" Overall, there were no significance (p = 0.07) differences between the number of athletes who were considered at risk for both inadequate energy intake and an eating disorder compared to non-athletes. Associations between athletes and the Female Athlete Triad are evident, but the Triad components are not yet fully understood. Results of this study suggest a need for screening and monitoring female athletes for Triad risk factors.

Book Description :

The female athlete triad (FAT) is a syndrome of three interrelated serious health disorders which include low energy availability with or without eating disorders, menstrual dysfunction and low bone mass. All female athletes are at risk for the triad or any of its components. However, FAT can also occur in non-athletic females who are not training or competing in a specific sport. Inadequate nutrition in combination with high caloric expenditure of sport training result in a sustained low energy availability which results in metabolic and hormonal disturbances such as menstrual irregularity and low bone mass. Early detection of FAT components is essential to prevent further development and worsening of the triad symptoms especially in adolescence because it is a critical period for optimizing bone mineral accrual. The physical therapists are an integral part of the interdisciplinary team that is involved in the care of female athletes. They have expertise in exercise metabolism, exercise prescription and sport biomechanics.Furthermore, the physical therapists bring additional expertise in the assessment and intervention of athletic and orthopedic injuries.

This successful book, now in a revised and updated second edition, reviews all aspects of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries in female athletes, with the focus on complete, noncontact ACL injuries. The opening section discusses anatomy and biomechanics and explains the short- and long-term impacts of complete ACL ruptures, including long-term muscle dysfunction and joint arthritis. Risk factors and possible causes of the higher noncontact ACL injury rates in female athletes compared with male athletes are then discussed in depth. Detailed attention is devoted to neuromuscular training programs and their effectiveness in reducing noncontact ACL injury rates in female athletes, as well as to sports-specific ACL injury prevention and conditioning programs of proven value. Rehabilitation programs after ACL injury and reconstruction that reduce the risk of a future injury are explored, and the concluding section looks at worldwide implementation of neuromuscular ACL injury prevention training and future research directions. The book will be of value to orthopedic surgeons, physical therapists, athletic trainers, sports medicine primary care physicians, and strength and conditioning specialists.
