"Catastrophic head injury three times greater in high school vs. collegiate football players"[edit]

Dr. Boden suggests that players should be discouraged from using their heads to tackle, since 81% of the injuries were caused by helmet-to-helmet collisions (16/37) and helmet-to-body collisions (14/37). [1] Brian Pearson 02:17, 4 July 2007 (UTC)

Effects of Sports Injury[edit]

In this section it would be a good idea to address athletes and what sports injuries can do to their careers. Will they fully recover? If not to what extent will they be able to play again? Percentages would best be able to aid in the answering of this question and some examples within sports. Onlybecauseihaveto (talk) 19:44, 8 February 2012 (UTC)

Types of Injury[edit]

I think overall the article is a good one. However i think that since the article is about sports injury that a diagnosis of the many different types of sports injuries would be relevant. This would have to be a continuous effort on the part of everyone to keep adding various injuries to the article and then the symptoms and treatment can follow also but i believe this can be an incredible article because of the amount of information that can be added.

I'm not sure if every feasible injury needs to be added, but at the very least it would be helpful to have a breakdown of the most common injuries by sport, their range of severity and the signs/symptoms that said injury has formed/is forming. With this it would also be nice to have the situations in which these injuries are most likely to occur such as: over-training, over-stressing of ligaments, head to head collisions etc. JB2794 (talk) 22:21, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

Sociological Impact of Injuries[edit]

Given that college athletes, especially in Division 1 programs, spend a great deal of time with their teammates and coaches, I believe it should be addressed how an athlete's relationship has the potential to change with a serious injury. If an athlete is used to the regimented lifestyle of a college athlete, how does he or she react to that change? Are they able to maintain the same relationships with teammates who are practicing and playing games together, while they are not playing? Do college athletes tend to come back stronger from injuries or do they regress? Are their social bonds effected, or can they usually maintain similarly strong bonds with teammates?
