That's Gotta Hurt : How Sports Injuries Are Transforming the Games We Watch and the Athletes Who Play Them Paperback / softback

Description

In That's Gotta Hurt, the orthopaedist David Geier shows how sports medicine has had a greater impact on the sports we watch and play than any technique or concept in coaching or training.

Injuries among professional and college athletes have forced orthopaedic surgeons and other healthcare providers to develop new surgeries, treatments, rehabilitation techniques, and prevention strategies.

In response to these injuries, sports themselves have radically changed their rules, mandated new equipment, and adopted new procedures to protect their players.

Parents now openly question the safety of these sports for their children and look for ways to prevent the injuries they see among the pros.

The influence that sports medicine has had in effecting those changes and improving both the performance and the health of the athletes has been remarkable. Through the stories of a dozen athletes whose injuries and recovery advanced the field (including Joan Benoit, Michael Jordan, Brandi Chastain, and Tommy John), Dr. Geier explains how sports medicine makes sports safer for the pros, amateurs, student-athletes, and weekend warriors alike.

That's Gotta Hurt is a fascinating and important book for all athletes, coaches, and sports fans.
