Is more productivity worth taking drugs? I think not.  

Jamison Fausett's curator insight, February 8, 2014 12:12 PM

We now live in the world of, if you don't like it about yourself, change it! Not the old fashioned way through mental discipline, but through means of surgical and medication. I too, have been subject to practice through medication after my brain injury on active duty. Yes, it does make the symptoms less severe but what we know of long term use to the great human body, is unknown and could be under fire some time in the future years.

When I worked as PTA, the way we pushed patients through as if they were parts at a car factory, frustrated many of the other PT/PTA's alike. The way the Doctor pushed patients through, became scrutinized by insurance companies, quickly leading to its closing.

As athletes become a prized investment, the scrutiny is high when making a medical decisions that regard the future well being of these athletes. Just because they can redefine the laws of physical performance, does not mean we shouldn't take into a higher consideration when letting them heal.

Not only do therapist's need to clear a player, but the player and coaches need to respect the injury for what it is. If a player competes on an injury that is not completely healed they are in such a great risk of causing more damage and even ruining their career.
