Pros to Joes: Elite Athlete Training for the Corporate World
by Dave Campbell
Kyle Rudolph's two most productive seasons for the Minnesota Vikings were also those in which he played every game, not coincidentally. After all the surgeries, crutches and rehab, Rudolph has found a training program to supplement team-supervised workouts that has contributed to the durability he's long sought to establish. The sturdiness of his body at age 26 has become equally important as the agility and strength needed to thrive as an NFL tight end in the prime of his career. "It's all about playing 16 games," said Rudolph, who found his happy place in downtown Minneapolis at the Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine Center through a joint venture with the specialized performance training firm EXOS … "The elite athlete is the beacon that gets all the attention, but those same principles trickle down to how we treat every athlete," said Dr. Ed Laskowski, the co-director of Mayo's sports medicine operation.

How Katie Ledecky Stacks Up Against Male Swimmers
by Peter Aldhous
Katie Ledecky blew away the competition in Rio de Janeiro, and was the standout racer of the 2016 Olympics. She won three individual golds, plus another gold and a silver in the relays. But it was her world records, and the margins of her victories, that really got people talking. Ledecky set world-best times in the 400- and 800-meter freestyle finals — winning that second race by more than 11 seconds. As she cuts through the water, Ledecky’s form is close to perfection. “I think her stroke is just really, really good,” Michael Joyner, an exercise physiologist at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, told BuzzFeed News. “Watch her hands: There are very few bubbles.”

US swimmer ignites interest in unusual chest condition
by Pete Scholz
It was June 2016, right after Cody Miller, 24, qualified for the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. It was then he shared with the world what he had been dealing with for the past 10 years or so. The pictures he posted showed his noticeably sunken sternum -- the telltale symptom of a condition known as pectus excavatum --"pectus" for short. From an operating theater at Mayo Clinic in north Phoenix, Dr. Dawn Jaroszewski pointed to a screen with two CT scans. "If you look at the normal chest, you have this rounded curvature," she indicated, "and on the pectus patient, you can see how the front of the chest collapses down," she added.

Context: Dawn Jaroszewski, M.D. is a Mayo Clinic cardiac surgeon. Pectus excavatum is a condition in which a person's breastbone is sunken into his or her chest. In severe cases, pectus excavatum can look as if the center of the chest has been scooped out, leaving a deep dent. Pectus excavatum can be surgically repaired, but surgery is usually reserved for people who have moderate to severe signs and symptoms. People who have mild signs and symptoms may be helped by physical therapy. Certain exercises can improve posture and increase the degree to which the chest can expand.

Washington Post, Is there a seasonal and geographic link to celiac disease? — Winter babies and people born in places with shorter days and less sunlight might have a lower risk of developing celiac disease than peers born in warmer regions or seasons, a Swedish study suggests…Among other things, global warming, variation in the type of spring weather and the timing of changing seasons might explain some of the differences in risk found in the study, said Joseph Murray, director of the celiac disease program at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn.
Sports Illustrated, Why hamstring injuries are so common in NFL players, during preseason training by Ian McMahan — Dr. Tim Hewett, director of biomechanics at the Mayo Clinic and a long time advisor to Ohio State football, speculates that while NFL players are at the top 1% of skill and athleticism, small deficits in critical areas can lead to injury. “The act of repeatedly practicing a sport creates asymmetry,” says Hewett. “With the amount of time professional athletes have spent focusing on their skill, I see as much asymmetry in them as I do anywhere else.” Hewett maintains that the NFL can learn from research in other sports, like soccer or rugby. “There is the belief among many in the NFL that their sports is different, but since most of the injuries in football are non-contact, sports medicine and injury research from other team sports can be applied to football.”
Forbes, The Must-Have 'Back-To-School' List For Leaders by Meghan M. Biro — Restart (or start) weekly meal planning. If the Mayo Clinic makes a suggestion, listen. Menu planning has myriad benefits for your health, but also for your wallet and your time. Instead of starting mid-morning wondering what you’ll eat for lunch or work through hunger because nothing is at-the-ready, meal planning allows you to focus on your work and your team; plus your brain will be able to function better from the nutritious food choices you’ll have prepared.
USA Today, U.S. Olympians taking part in health and wellness study by Rachel Axon — After they’ve finished competing here in the Olympics, some Americans will be getting another measure of their health and fitness. Some Olympians are taking part in a study conducted by Thorne Research and the Mayo Clinic, which will evaluate their overall health, identify deficiencies and give them an analysis of samples they submitted before coming to Rio…Paul Jacobson, CEO of Thorne Research, said Olympians are part of the 48-person study being run by the Mayo Clinic. Menke said at least one triathlete is taking part, but because of privacy laws he does not know which of the six Olympians might have volunteered for the study.

Manchester Evening News, Parents putting babies at risk of SIDS with unsafe sleep habits — A new study has found the use of blankets, bumpers, pillows and stuffed animals is still creating unnecessary risks .Many are creating unnecessary risks by using blankets, bumpers, pillows and stuffed animals.… Dr. Robert Jacobson, a paediatrician at the Mayo Clinic in America, says: "Babies need to be placed on the back for every nap and every night until the baby is one year old. "No blankets, no bumpers, no pillows, no stuffy animals, but always on a firm, authentic baby crib mattress."
Everyday Health, How Hot and Cold Weather Affects Your Blood Sugar by Beth Orenstein — Stay hydrated: Lori Roust, MD, an endocrinologist at the Mayo Clinic in Arizona, explains, “The problem is that in the heat, people tend to get dehydrated easily. When you’re dehydrated, you have higher concentrations of blood sugar because less blood flows through your kidneys. With less blood, your kidneys don’t work as efficiently to clear out any excess glucose (blood sugar) from your urine.” When it’s hot, be sure to drink plenty of water or sugar-free drinks. Don’t wait until you are thirsty to replenish fluids.
Tampa Bay Times, Mayo Clinic Q&A: Painful golfer's elbow isn't limited to golfers — In many cases, golfer's elbow requires only self-care at home. Rest from golf and other repetitive wrist and hand activities. Ice the painful area for 15 to 20 minutes at a time, three to four times a day, for several days. Take an over-the-counter nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug, such as ibuprofen or naproxen sodium. If pain is persistent, though, imaging tests may be necessary to assess the injury. A musculoskeletal ultrasound study or MRI can be used to evaluate if there's a tear in one of your muscles or tendons…Bryan Ganter, M.D., Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Mayo Clinic, Scottsdale, Ariz.
WXOW LaCrosse, Mayo Clinic unveils strategies to develop drugs that would target aging processes — Researchers believe an accumulation of senescent cells (those that no longer divide) leads to age-related ailments. “They promote inflammation and a lot of other processes that can accelerate the development of a number of age-related diseases," said Dr. Jordan Miller, a member of Mayo Clinic's Division of Cardiovascular Surgery. ”Attack multiple diseases almost at the same time, "said Dr. Miller. "So if we can delay the onset of these diseases -- ideally, just compress the time that you have the illness toward the end of life -- then you’ll have a much greater quality of life and a longer quality of life.”
DOTmed.com, Will computers replace radiologists? by John W. Mitchell — In the next ten years, computers could be reading the majority of routine diagnostic imaging tests such as mammograms and chest X-rays. This could allow radiologists to spend their time sorting out abnormal findings, conducting invasive procedures, and spending more time with patients. That’s the prediction of a physician expert who presented a webinar titled “Deep Learning: How It Will Change Everything”, organized by the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) and attended by nearly 300 people on Wednesday. “Deep learning is the hot area,” Dr. Bradley J. Erickson, M.D., Ph.D., professor of radiology and associate chair for research at the Mayo Clinic told HCB News. “Physicians may say they have information that may not be computable ... but deep learning allows imaging reading by computers that see more than we see.”

Kay, MD, professor of medicine, Mayo Clinic, discusses the genetic investigations being conducted in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), and more specifically, monoclonal b-cell lymphocytosis (MBL), which resembles CLL but does not meet the same criteria. Large cohorts of patients with familial CLL, who have at least one first-degree blood relative with CLL, are currently being studied in this space because their families have increased incidence of MBL.
Infection Control Today, Mayo Clinic Expert Explains 10 Things You Should Know About Antibiotic Resistance — Concern about a superbug gene with resistance to an antibiotic of last resort surfaced this summer among some health and infectious disease experts. A recent study in Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy, a journal of the American Society for Microbiology, found bacteria resistant to colistin in a second patient in the U.S. Though rare, resistance to colistin may leave health providers with few options for fighting bacterial infections in affected patients. What should you know? Audrey Schuetz, MD, a clinical microbiologist in the Mayo Clinic Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology, shares her insights in this Q&A.
Post-Bulletin, Mayo Clinic-funded firm sells for $225 million by Jeff Kiger — The $225 million sale of an Ohio biotech company could be a financial boon for Mayo Clinic.
