This is not a comedy hour. This is not your social media jokes page. For that, by now, you know where to go. No, the matter of sports injuries is a very serious matter indeed. It is so serious that sportsmen and women could be visiting their local sports injury clinic in Mount Pleasant even when not injured. Why is this? Why would anyone in their right mind (it is assumed) want to visit a sports injury clinic when not injured.
Well, to make sure that they remain injury-free, would you believe. This practice is essential and critical for sportsmen and women who earn their wages from playing sport every other weekend to keep you entertained and riveted on the edge of your seats. Do note that these are not your superstar status sportsmen and women who get paid ridiculously obscene amounts of money, and still get to reap the benefits of multimillion dollar endorsements.
No, these are your handicapped sportsmen and women who simply do not have enough insurance coverage to cover them in the event that they should lose the use of their limbs in the event of a debilitating and long-term injury that could see them laid off by the wayside for months, losing their month to month incomes into the bargain. It has to be said for the benefit of those who aspire to such levels, the lot of the sportsman or woman is nowhere near as glamorous at it looks on their TV screens.
Apart from the months of sacrifice that goes into preparing for a new season that may not yield a championship but may well yield a survival, or a revival, the sportsman and woman has to work really seriously hard to stay injury free.
