I might have missed it in TFA, but who pays for such surgeries? I would imagine that your ballclub pays for TJ surgery if you're Stephen Strasburg or Neftali Feliz. But it's gotta be expensive if you're Fred Nobody, and I can't imagine that Cal State Fullerton is going to cover it.
Maybe #1 is actually correct and TJ surgery for all is one of the socialist freeloader provisions of the ACA :)
Pitchers and coaches alike have become more reckless during practice and play, Ahmad said, because they wrongly believe that injuries can easily be fixed with surgery. According to his research, 30 percent of coaches did not believe that throwing too much would lead to injury.
Really? Because, in a sane world, the answer from the Dr/insurance company should be "Stop throwing".
50 percent of student athletes believed the surgery should be performed in absence of injury in order to improve performance
If they stop doing those activities maybe their medical expenses go up because they lose an enjoyable healthy activity and then their health begins to fail generally.
If it impairs daily life, it should be covered. If it just means you can't throw a ball very fast, or have pain when throwing, it shouldn't be.
Agree. I'm just saying the ability to play recreational sports isn't a big deal.
Wait a sec... Dickey is the guy from Cleveland who threw the pitch hr called "the thing"?
