Should we consider skate-boarding a 'risk behaviour'? If it takes place in skateparks with adequate protection it is very safe...

Agree but was trying to bring in a published paper and on a topic that was loosely linked and part of the LO's. Also just trying the whole thing out.

Sure, an important step for the 'curator' is to state why they think the resource is relevant and to critique it. Learning how staff verify content in resources will be very useful for students developing information literacies.

Common Skate Related Knee Injuries and How to Avoid Them

Common Knee Injuries for Skaters

 

The most common parts of the knee that skaters injure during the execution of tricks are the anterior cruciate and the meniscus. More than 70% of those types of knee injuries typically occur when a skater lands from an aerial maneuver or changes direction rapidly. The impact of the landing, and the twisting motions inherent in changing directions while on your skateboard, are what can cause the ligaments and cartilage to tear away from your bones. The second most common parts of the knee that skaters injure are the posterior cruciate and the medial collateral. These injuries typically occur when you land on your knees during a fall or hit them against another object like a grinding ledge or metal coping. If the impact is severe enough, it could even cause your femur, tibia and patella to fracture.

Skateboarding injuries of today -- Forsman and Eriksson 35 (5): 325 -- British Journal of Sports Medicine

Skateboarding injuries of today -- Forsman and Eriksson 35 (5): 325 -- British Journal of Sports Medicine | Jake's Knee | Scoop.it

Background—Skateboarding injuries have increased with the rise in popularity of the sport, and the injury pattern can be expected to have changed with the development of both skateboard tricks and the materials used for skateboard construction.

Objective—To describe the injury pattern of today.

Methods—The pattern of injuries, circumstances, and severity were investigated in a study of all 139 people injured in skateboarding accidents during the period 1995–1998 inclusive and admitted to the University Hospital of Umeå. This is the only hospital in the area, serving a population of 135 000.

AnneMarie Cunningham's insight:

This is a research study publised in 2001. It looks at the skate-board related injuries of people who attended a Swedish hospital over three years. How common were knee injuries?

Skateboarding Safety-OrthoInfo - AAOS

Skateboarding is an increasingly popular recreational activity among teenagers-especially young males. Practice skateboarding safely and use protective equipment. It is a fun and healthy sport that can give you a low-impact aerobic workout.

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons encourages physical activity as part of an overall health and fitness plan. You can have fun, but it is always important to be safe!

AnneMarie Cunningham's insight:

Info from the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons on who is most likely to get an injury when skate-boarding and how they can be prevented. But can you identify the research where these statistics came from? Can you find a link to it in the document? Is a reference given?
