Sports Ethics: Ellis, A.
Physical therapy and athletic training go hand-in-hand. Physical therapy is traditionally post-injury rehabilitation and athletic training helps prevent those injuries from occurring. The ethics and moral that each profession shows is important for a patient and the care received. The articles in this magazine relate to those professions and sportsmanship by the athlete as well.

Legend, Yankees' Great Derek Jeter Retiring Succeeding 2014 Season - Empire Writes Back

Legend, Yankees' Great Derek Jeter Retiring Succeeding 2014 Season
Empire Writes Back
Not only is he class-personified, but his drive and sportsmanship is unrivaled in the game of baseball,” Ryan said.
Alexander Ellis's insight:

One of the classiest men to play baseball is retiring after this season.  He has always represented himself and the Yankees organization in a  professional manner on and off the field.  He has set an example for millions for emulate and may possibly become the first ever unanimous first-ballot hall of fame inductee.

Ethical issues and sports medicine

Ethical issues and sports medicine | Sports Ethics: Ellis, A. | Scoop.it

In today’s sports medicine arena, this definition is not so clear. The traditional physician-patient relationship now has become, at the least, a triad—doctor-patient-team relationship. In some cases, the financial “health” of the patient threatens to cloud the picture.

The priority in treating a child’s sports injury is pretty clear when the child’s physical health is the first priority of all interested parties. But what about the scholarship-level high-school athlete whose ticket out of an impoverished background or means to a college education is his or her athletic ability? What about the professional basketball player in game 7 of the final round of the playoffs? Does the Hippocratic rule—the basic tenet of all of medicine—change? When does the black and white of clinical sports medicine turn a shade of gray?

Sideline and locker room injections are routinely performed in the elite college and professional arenas to facilitate participation of the individual athlete. Where and how the line is drawn will be the ethical footprint for future sports medicine professionals. Should the relationship between the physician and the injured athlete become a team sport with multiple participants?


Via Simon Gonzalez, Luke Wichman
Alexander Ellis's insight:

The hippocratic rule/oath taken by physicians is at times neglected to help the athlete succeed when their health may be in jeopardy.  The oath is one that a physician swears to treat a patient as if they were treating oneself and being responsible for that patient at all times. Athletes will do anything to stay in competition and it is the physician's duty to make the right decision, no matter what following consequence may take place.

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

Dr. Andrews says RG3 was never cleared to re-enter game | Sports Ethics: Ellis, 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.

Via Matthew Hubbard, ALONZA ALEXANDER
Alexander Ellis's insight:

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...

Angela Hernandez's curator insight, February 17, 2013 1:04 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.

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.

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.

Bad Sportsmanship? Indiana Girls Basketball Team Blows Out ...

Bad Sportsmanship? Indiana Girls Basketball Team Blows Out ... | Sports Ethics: Ellis, A. | Scoop.it
I played girls soccer and situations like this would come up every year. Our team would be up 8-0 within 20 minutes and the our coach would switch us up. Defense would play offense. That's sportsmanship!

Via Quincy Richmond
Alexander Ellis's insight:

The Bloomington South coach said that not shooting baskets would have been more embarrassing, but could be true.  In hindsight, the game looks like it was an act of poor sportsmanship, but they were just playing the game.  Playing the girls who don't get as much playing time and playing loose defense was probably done, but there is only so much a team can do...

A Canadian Helped This Russian Finish His Race

A Canadian Helped This Russian Finish His Race | Sports Ethics: Ellis, A. | Scoop.it
Disaster struck for Russian cross-country skier Anton Gafarov while racing in the free sprint on Tuesday, Gafarov broke his ski during the race.
Alexander Ellis's insight:

Sportsmanship is not dead.  Some people get caught up in fame, glory, and money, but then there are those who are in it for the love of the sport and competition.  This Russian skier broke one of his skis and a Canadian ran on the course and gave him a replacement just so he could finish the race.  It is moments like this that make the Olympics special.

Personal and professional respect and courtesy is highly valued in this field because physical contact with a stranger is required at times.  If clients are not comfortable with their trainer/therapist, the business will fall quickly.

Physical therapy billing fraud case settled - The Spokesman-Review

Physical therapy billing fraud case settled - The Spokesman-Review | Sports Ethics: Ellis, A. | Scoop.it
A Spokane physical therapist has escaped a 52-count felony case that accused him of overbilling the state for patient care.
Alexander Ellis's insight:

Money will turn a good person bad! This therapist overcharged numerous patients for services that weren't even provided and added himself as a supervisor over an athletic trainer just so he could get some extra money. 

It is about always patient care until money comes into the picture.  This therapist got off easy with paying only $22,000 dollars in restitution and losing his license for five years...

Seattle Seahawks' Richard Sherman needs to learn what ... - Allvoices | Sports Ethics: Ellis, A. | Scoop.it
Richard Sherman needs to learn what sportsmanship is. The guy is being his usual cocky and annoying self. He's rubbing his victory in the noses of the Denver Broncos.
Alexander Ellis's insight:

I think Sherman does know about sportsmanship.  He has been hooked up to a microphone on may occasions, and he has always shown respect toward his opponents.  He is very passionate and gets carried away, like his newly famous rant after the NFC championship game, but he actually is a good sportsman.
