THURSDAY, Sept. 21, 2017 -- Active middle-aged men are likely to stay active into old age, a new study finds.
The research included nearly 3,500 British men, aged 40 to 59 at the start of the study. The researchers followed the men's health for 20 years. Those who were physically active in mid-life were nearly three times more likely to be active at the end of the study period.
TUESDAY, Sept. 19, 2017 -- Athletes are dying from cardiac arrests that occur during play because teammates, coaches and other bystanders don't know how to best save their lives, a new study claims.
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) applied immediately can give these athletes a fighting chance, but onlookers failed to provide CPR in three out of five cases, according to a review of more than two dozen game videos.
TUESDAY, July 25, 2017 -- A new surgical procedure can help people with shoulder injuries once considered beyond repair, a small new study suggests.
Out of 100 patients who had the surgery in the study, all 26 of those who had played sports before the surgery were able to play sports again afterwards. Thirty-two patients who had jobs lifting heavy workloads were able to return completely to work. Another two -- a farmer and a manual worker -- were also able to return to work, but with reduced hours and reduced workloads.
