How do injuries impact an athlete’s ability to earn income? If a college athlete turns professional, do the health risks outweigh the financial benefits? Who ultimately earns more money and lives a better life – the professional athlete or the high school math whiz? Athletes and Injuries combines 28 years of personal research and professional knowledge with empirical mathematical data from doctors, institutions, corporations and athletic associations of all tiers. We examine athletes from every sports level, from the pee-wee league to the professional league. The findings may surprise, shock, encourage, sadden and enlighten. Welcome to Athletes and Injuries.
