Patient-oriented and clinician-oriented outcomes in athletes

Patient-oriented and clinician-oriented outcomes in athletes

The purposes of this study are to (1) assess performance of athletes on a series of corefocused exercises/functional tests and ultrasound imaging of muscles during the functional tests, and (2) assess patient-reported outcomes on health history, pain, fear-avoidance beliefs, health-related quality of life, athletic identity, and activity levels in athletes. These assessments are commonly used in athletics to evaluate for injury risk, activity levels, and performance.

We expect that you will be in this research study for two sessions in our laboratory with a twoweek (14 days) period of wearing an activity monitor on your wrist (like a watch) between the sessions. We ask that you wear the monitor for at least 10 hours each day during daytime hours and that you avoid bathing, showering, swimming, or any activity that would submerge the monitor in water. You may also wear the monitor all day and night, but wearing the monitor while sleeping is not a requirement of this study.

Inclusion Qualifications:

  • At least 18 years old
  • Classified as current athlete based on your response to the following question: “Do you currently participate in an organized sport at any level?”
