Not sure why you have quite the attitude. The club are clearly hopeless at rehabilitating soft tissue injuries, especially chronic conditions, and I would have thought the suggestion to rehab an injury properly - something clearly beyond them - was both appropriate and sage advice.

What would be your advice to them re;hamstring rehabilitation - Askling, Aspetar, Mendiguchia, Opar/Hickey, or something else?
I have missed you. Pies' medicos must be doing something ok when a bloke with a BF account set up solely to criticise them has had to wait until after Rd 8 to make his first appearance for the year.

You clearly aren't a Pies supporter. Maybe try the Tigers board and have a go at them over Cotchin's hammy?

No need for a break with correct rehabilitation. Unsure why this is such a difficult concept to grasp, even for the medically illiterate like you.
I'm picturing you in a lycra suit wearing a cape. With the initials BC on your chest above an image of a stethoscope. Do you picture yourself similarly?

I did. But then I received another one back asking what "fascicle" was, so I'm thinking a workshop might be needed, along with a medical encyclopedia.
Perhaps they would have listened if you hadn't have started the letter you wrote to them with: "Hey morons, You guys have no idea. Just to show how much smarter I am, here's some medical terms I know: fascicle, etc.."

Anyone who would ask a question like that to someone with very little knowledge about the individual case study, really has no idea. Anyone who claims they know the answers to Elliott's situation without having studied his case closely, really should be a mystic medicine man, with no need of the vocabulary that you are so proud of. Study the individual case. Then once you have a decent understanding of the individual case, consider a treatment course, consider footwear, lifestyle and posture issues and then consider a series of activities to strengthen and rehabilitate the area and any other areas that may be contributing. Anyone who thinks they can diagnose and prescribe a course of rehabilitation without knowledge of the patient's particular case is a fool.

No, it's because engaging in discourse with stubborn illiterates is quite depressing, and best done only in small doses. As per:
Interesting use of "illiterate" so close to a flawed use of "as per" ("for example" would have been closer to the mark). Less time spent in the medicine books and more on the humanities may have given you a better grasp of English.

We've had an issue with dealing with soft tissue injuries since Nathan Buckley was playing. If we were more competent at rehabilitation, he'd probably still be hitting up Sean Rusling out of the square on the weekends instead of sitting in the coaches box.

What is considered the correct rehabilitation? Is it universal for all injuries, what about muscle specific? Are two hamstring injuries the same? Is there a universally "correct" form of rehab? Are ideas on rehab static, or are they constantly shaped by recent research literature?

Same goes for all teams in all sports. Medicine has advanced enormously, but there's still a heap of trial and error involved.

Whilst i like your post, it was an interesting use of the word interesting to point out something that was not interesting.

No way, it's a a Collingwood thing. Rusling would've played 300 games if Richmond recruited him
And I'd still have my old name! :(

This thread has made my train ride home.

Jamie Elliott gets injured. This should surprise nobody.

But somehow some kent gets triggered, like fully triggered, like a fully triggered kent. So triggered in fact that he wrote a letter with the word "fascicle" in it. I'm not even making this **** up!

This triggers some otherwise not triggered kents.

This triggers the originally triggered kent to get even more triggered, to a point where he insults the medical literacy of the other triggered kents that he triggered.

The triggeredness of the medically illiterate triggered kents then rises further, to a point where they insult the overall literacy of the originally triggered kent, thereby implying that he is not only a triggered kent, but also a dumb kent.

How much more can this escalate?

It's a war zone in here, and I'm triggered.
