Paul Larson's insight:

In this article it talks about how injuries are a big problem for all young athletes. I have learned that the cause of most injuries is from bad technique with stretching during warm-ups and pre-game. The prevention of injuries is simple. Just work on the little things like stretching and that could save you from tearing your ACL or pulling a muscle or whatever it may be. Young athletes don't see the importance in this most of the time and thats why they are getting injured. This has to do with my topic because all this technique and stretching can be helped by physical trainers and therapists.

This article is basically what physical therapy is. "A physical is a specialist trained to work with you to restore your activity, strength and motion following an injury or surgery."

Jamison Fausett's curator insight, February 9, 2014 2:16 PM

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.

Alexander Ellis's curator insight, February 16, 2014 11:17 AM

Dr. James Andrews is known as the best orthopedic surgeon in sports and America.  He is also a physician for the Washington Redskins.  His career could have been in jeopardy if he had given RGIII the go-ahead to play when initial reports said he did after sustaining a nasty knee injury.  It is his duty to protect players from playing when they shouldn't be on the field.  He may be the best doctor, but he won't be if he ever loses his license...

In this article it talks about injuries that have already occured to someone and they basically start working on getting it back to strength tp early. I think that like it said in the article young athletes need to take more pre-cautions after an injury before they return, meaning that they should do physical therapy, slowly work into it and maybe have more frequent visits to your doctor before you fully return back to sports. A lot of kids don't take these pre-cautions and end up re-injuring themselves and basically burning it out. This has to do with my topic because it gets into sports medicine and the importance of rehabilitation.

This article is about a personal trainer who loved sports and found a career in training athletes to their prime. This job is similar in a lot of ways to being a physical therapist because both invlolve getting people as strong as possible- whether it be after an injury or getting them in a condition that was better than ever before. Also, both careers require good people skills. They need to have uplifting and exciting attitudes because i have learned that ultimately, that is what draws people back to you.

These classes are very important to be involved in. A Bachelor degree is required to get involved in a lot of the physical therapy programs/career schools.
