Osteoarthritis of the Ankle and Foot Complex in Former Greek Soccer Players.
Armenis E, Pefanis NN, Tsiganos G, Karagounis PD, Baltopoulos P.
Foot Ankle Spec. 2011 Sep 30.
Quote:
Sports activities cause increased loads in elite athletes' joints. Current scientific knowledge highlights the importance of applied mechanical loads on the physiology and pathophysiology of the articular cartilage. Thus, it is possible that sporting activity has a role in the development of osteoarthritis (OA), a painful and damaging joint disease. The aim of the present study was to investigate and record osteoarthritic alterations in the ankle and foot complex in former Greek soccer players and also compare them with those in the general population. The study sample consisted of 170 male, former elite soccer players, aged between 42 and 55 years (mean = 49.8 years, standard deviation [SD] = 7.4). A control group of 132 men, aged between 42 and 55 years (mean, 50.7 years, SD = 9.9), with no regular athletic activity were examined. The development of osteoarthritic alterations was recorded through a questionnaire and clinical and radiological examination. Radiographic analysis of the images in former athletes group showed not only more signs of cartilage degeneration in comparison with the control group (P < .05) but also similar clinical manifestations (pain and impaired mobility; P > .05). Osteophyte formation is a frequent disease among former soccer players-with variations on radiographic images-but it does not appear in their clinical picture. However, it is likely that both spurs and subchondral sclerosis (main findings) are preclinical manifestations of OA.

When I see a set of radiographs from a man over the age of 40 that has played soccer all their lives, I am very suprised when I don't see signs of moderate OA or abnormal osteophytes in the feet and ankles. Soccer is very tough on the feet and ankles.

BTW - soccer = football

Need some new (again) terminology;

Soccer= bunch of softies wearing ridiculous haircuts running around like headless chickens earning stupid money

American Football = bunch of softies wearing ridiculous protective clothing running around like headless chickens earning stupid money

;-)

Risk and consequences of osteoarthritis after a professional football career: a systematic review of the recent literature.
Gouttebarge V, Inklaar H, Frings-Dresen MH.
J Sports Med Phys Fitness. 2014 May 14
Quote:
BACKGROUND:
The aim of the present study was to assess whether previous injury is a risk determinant for knee and ankle osteoarthritis (OA) in former professional football players and to explore OA-related activity and work limitations.
METHODS:
To retrieve the relevant recent literature, the Medline, Embase and Sportdiscus databases were systematically searched for studies published from January 2000 to May 2012. Included studies must be primary studies that are written in English, Dutch, French or German and involve former professional football players; injury had to be studied as an independent variable; and knee/ankle OA, work participation or limited activities had to be described as an outcome. The data from included studies were extracted using a standardised extraction form, and the methodological quality was assessed.
RESULTS:
No studies were retrieved about injury as a risk determinant for knee/ankle OA in former professional football players. Four studies about OA-related activity and work limitations were included (three of high and one of moderate methodological quality). Up to 17% of former professional football players with knee/ankle OA reported suffering from joint pain and discomfort during activities such as squatting, walking and climbing stairs. Former professional football players with knee/ankle OA reported that their conditions were very painful, chronically painful and affected their daily lives, while 28% reported work-related limitations.
CONCLUSION:
Knee and ankle OA in former professional football players causes joint pain and discomfort that has negative consequences for daily life and work activities. An OA health examination programs should be developed to empower the sustainable health and functioning of professional football players.
