Kara Logan's insight:

This article spoke well about what goes on in the brain of a athlete when they are injured. How they are afraid and will almost always have that conscious thought telling you to not do to much on your hurt leg. It's also mentions how most surgeons and orthopedic (specialist) don't recommend there athletic patients to see a psychological predictor, which in my opinion would do some good. Fears about reinjury, fears related to surgery, and lack of patience with recovery/rehabilitation were the 3 most common injury-related topics discussed with patient-athletes. The 3 most common non-injury-related topics discussed were stress/pressure, anxiety, and burnout". Both injury related and non-injury related psychological issues need to be attended too. Most athletic specialist base there patients rehab and treatment to the psychological issue.

Kara Logan's insight:
I believe that this method should really help improve athletes performance, because by looking back on DNA you can tell what kind of problems may have occurred in the later generation that may partake in the the earlier generation. Since it can also tell athletes weaker points and stronger points in the body, it can notify them what moves not to do so they won't damage weaker joints.

Kara Logan's insight:
Mental and physical stress can cause an injury. When athletes have had an injury, after healing when they begin to use that injured area again they tend to baby it. Not wanted to injury that area again or cause it hurt. When that happens athletes put all the weight and pressure on the non injured object when will then or may result in harming the other muscle or bone. To much physical stress will almost always create an injury.
