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.

Continued Education in a profession like this is an absolute must.

Gage Wesley's curator insight, January 6, 2014 3:56 AM

In this article, I learned that your clients or what some would call peers, need to trust and accept you in order to see the best results possible. Even though you may have a degree, continued research is still appreciated within the community of physical therapy. You also need to provide all the information necessary to a patient/client so that they can make an informed decision on what they want to do.

Dr. Andrews says RG3 was never cleared to re-enter game

Dr. Andrews says RG3 was never cleared to re-enter game | Sports Ethics: Hernandez, A | Scoop.it
Renowned sports surgeon Dr. James Andrews serves as one of the Redskins’ game-day physicians.  That relationship could now be in danger, grave or otherwise.

Angela Hernandez's insight:

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...
