Background: Hamstring injuries frequently occur in sports involving explosive movement patterns and can cause lengthy downtimes. Data on hamstring injuries in Taekwondo is completely lacking. In a case study with four top Taekwondo athletes we describe the specific characteristics of this type of injury, the resulting downtimes and the athletes’ performance following conservative treatment, for the first time.
Methods: In a retrospective study, the hamstring injuries of four top international athletes were examined. Injuries were diagnosed by means of MRI. All injuries were classified according to severity and given an MRI score (min. 3, max. 19 points). Performance parameters for assessment included the number match points achieved in the 12 months prior to and following injury, tournament participation and downtime. Recurrent ruptures and contra lateral injuries were also taken into consideration.
Results: Athletes were aged between 16 and 25 (average age 20.3 years).Injuries were exclusively proximal ruptures. The MRI score was between 5 and 9 (mean value 6.5 points). All injuries involved the semi membranous muscle. Ruptures did not extend significantly into the cross-section of the muscle. Manifestation of all injuries in the MRI was without retraction. The average downtime before returning to competition was 69.2 days. The number of match points gained in the 12 months following injury dropped by an average of 19.8. Two athletes suffered recurrent ruptures and two had contra lateral ruptures.
Conclusion: The most frequent form of hamstring injuries in Taekwondo appears to be the stretching type. They result in downtime and a considerable decline in performance. The high incidence of ruptures and the contralateral ruptures within the subsequent year emphasises the extreme biomechanical strain on this muscle group. Parameters are needed to determine the best time to return to the competitive level following conservative therapy.

Effectiveness of Health Education Programmedon Knowledge regarding Management ofOrthopedic Appliances among Fracture Patients at RLJalappa Hospital, Kolar by G Vijayalakshmi in Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Open Access Journal (OSMOAJ) in Lupine Publishers 

Introduction: Effectiveness of health education programme was evaluated among forty patients diagnosed as having fracture and admitted at RLJH and RC with different types of orthopedic appliances. 

Methodology: Using quasi experimental one group pre and post test design, patients were assessed for their knowledge followed by a health education programme was administered on management of orthopedic appliances among fracture patients. After seven days, a post test was conducted. 

Findings: The results showed that structured health education programmed was effective in improving the knowledge score among fracture patients on management of orthopedic appliances. 

Conclusion: Health professionals should spend some time with fracture patient to educate regarding orthopedic appliances and its related complications. So that, future occurrence of complications related to orthopedic appliances can be prevented.

No Fact Check, Pharmaceutical Instituionsfrom Reputed Pune University and SociallySituated and Socially Constituted Agency by Rahul Hajare in Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Open Access Journal (OSMOAJ) in Lupine Publishers

The behavioral view of corporate governance has derived from the behavioral view of the firm, which arguably rests on more realistic assumptions than the economics rooted positive agency theory with regard to the heuristics of managerial action. In addition to the bounded rationality condition, the principle of satisfying and the assumption on routinisation in the decision-making process, the behavioral view treats organizations as complex social systems. They constitute venues of power battles among the coalitions of corporate actors realizing often conflicting goal agendas. It is therefore probably the most explicit about the existence of phenomena of power and politics in the corporate settings among all theories of the firm.
