Role of a Professional Orthopedic Surgeon in Today’s Sports Scene
In sports, people are pushing their bodies to extremes and so, injuries can be expected. However, an injury does not automatically mean the end of a sports career. In an article from the Herald Times, for example, it was reported that a player named Peyton Burke who just came back from an ankle injury was able to run her career best in the Northwest League meet. Her 17.8 100-meter hurdles run earned her third place, cementing a spot in the state meet, giving testament to her successful recovery. Risk of Injury in Sports Sports today have gone a long way from the competitions done in ancient times. Even combat sports, like boxing and the like, are nowhere near as deadly as the gladiatorial battles in Rome— safety measures and standards are put in place to prevent devastating injuries for players.
