Rough Introduction of Final

Each year it seems as though a new topic unveils itself within the area of health. This is especially so when the topic of health is interconnected with that of sports. Usually these ideas have to do with ways in which athletes can gain an edge on their competitor, or how new equipment has been designed to protect an athlete. The one topic that is usually under discussed is what happens when these programs and equipment fail, and the real impact that this can have on an individual’s life. As to why this information is “swept” away is unknown, but these thoughts and ideas need to be discussed in order to save the well being of individuals in the future. This particular area of injury within an athlete is probably the most overlooked, and under exaggerated injury that can occur. It effects close to 500,000 children up to the age of 14 each year, with 85 percent of them occurring within the realm of sport.
