Sports, Pain and Injury

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Liston examines the main areas of development in the study of sports, pain, and injury, highlighting the presence and normalization of risk. She discusses a paradox where, as sports people move up the competitive sporting ladder, their bodies begin
to break and wear down through health-compromising behaviors such as the acceptance of pain and injury. Liston uses the example of concussions and their effects on National Football League (NFL) and rugby union athletes to illustrate the risk associated with and accepted in sports.
