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...

Paul Larson's curator insight, April 24, 2014 7:17 PM

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.

The future of ethics in Physical Therapy

New theories in law can have a profound affect on what is considered ethical treatment as well as clinical practices.

brandon hockenbarger's curator insight, April 26, 2015 12:58 AM

This is more of a lengthy read, however it breaks down the basis of a lot of questionable practices.
