Today’s New York Times Sports page had an article of the increase of hip injuries in sport.
This is a quote from the article: “Experts said other factors could be at work in addition to the overemphasis on leg strength.” Who are these ubiquitous experts? Have any of them ever been around training and truly understand the demands of the sport.
I believe the following quote from the article explains the increase of hip injuries in athletes today. Chris Powers nails it: “It’s not like workouts have changed all of a sudden; it doesn’t explain it,” said Christopher Powers, an associate professor of biokinesiology at the University of Southern California. “People and doctors are just more aware of it diagnostically. We’ve always had hip problems; now we are just finding it better.” I might add that we are finding it better because we are looking for it.
