Written by Sports Medicine Team on 10/6/2014 8:00:00 AM

Before the puck drops at the first Indy Fuel game, we sat down with Dr. Joshua Kluetz, to learn more about the most common hockey injuries, and how they can be prevented.

Dr. Joshua Kluetz, sports medicine"At the professional level, the most commonly injured area of the body is the head, followed by the thighs, knees, shoulders and hands," said Kluetz, sports medicine physician at Community Physician Network at team physician for the Indy Fuel. 

Head injuries normally include concussions, lacerations, and tooth injures. Contusions to the thigh are seen often, as are MCL sprains to the knee. Shoulder injuries normally include AC joint sprains (separated shoulders), clavicle (collar bone) fractures, and shoulder dislocations. The most common hand injuries are fractures and contusions.

Marathon training: Nutrition essentials

Written by Jackie Dikos, RD, CSSD on 8/8/2014 6:30:00 AM

Jackie Dikos is a registered dietitian and a certified specialist in sports dietetics.

Jackie Dikos, Community Sports MedicineIt's officially training season for the Indianapolis Monumental Marathon and many Hoosiers are lacing up their running shoes. A key component in marathon and half-marathon training is nutrition.

Fueling your body for endurance is essential during training. Here is some advice:

Eat carbohydrates.
Your body turns carbohydrates into glucose which gives you energy and fuels long, demanding training sessions. Carbohydrates are an essential part of a good endurance diet. Try to include a source of quality carbohydrates with each meal and snack. Oatmeal, whole grains and brown rice are a few examples.

Limit fat excesses.
Meals that are high fat content, like wings, an 8 oz. steak, and creamy pasta sauce take a long time to digest and can contribute to gastrointestinal issues. These meals can also rob a carbohydrate-rich appetite. Instead of eating one large meal that's high in fat, spread out small amounts of healthy fat choices (nuts, avocado, salmon, and olive oil) throughout the day. continue reading ...

"A hamstring injury like the one Altidore experienced is actually quite common," said DaRosa. "Also seen often in the sport of soccer are ankle sprains, knee sprains and concussions."
