    Injuries & Other Ills

    Various things have made me wonder lately, if it mightn't be a good idea to have a thread dedicated to injuries & illnesses? A place to easily get updates on skaters' conditions, and keeping up with who's injured, recuperating &c? The info is otherwise spread all over the forum, on a dozen different threads, and it can be difficult to keep track.

    So, starting off; Plushy's recently had surgery, which renders his participation in the NRW Trophy highly doubtful.

    I guess everyone's having his or her surgery this year to get it over with before the Olympic season. And of course, sometimes the problem is unforeseen, like Evan's hernia. Gaak! Reading this thread is going to make us think that skaters are dropping like flies. But it's helpful to know what's what, so thanks for starting this thread.

    Yes, I know - I'm hoping there'll be some "doing great, rearing to go" news/updates to balance things a bit.

    Apropos dropping like flies...

    Poor, poor Daisuke Murakami! Does anyone know what exactly happened, and how he's doing? I felt for him so.

    There really needs to be a list somewhere so we can keep track.

    The PBR used to have a list on their website listing the Bull Rider, the injury, date of injury and how injured, date expected back on circuit /or if still competing while injured.

    For example:

    Lysacek, E unspecified groin injury during training, Oct 2012, Hernia Surgery Nov 21 2012, Not competing until after Jan 8, 2012
    Abbott,J unspecified back injury at Skate America, Oct 20, 2012, competing
    Weir, J ACL injury and unspecified hip injury, Nov 10, 2012 at Rostelecom Cup practice, out of TEB, competition status undetermined

    Daisuke Murakami partially dislocated his shoulder.
    Also, Jorik Hendrickx broke his ankle at TEB

    Thank you, all of you! With such an international forum such as ours - and varied fanbase - I think we have a great resource to tap into, to keep us all up to date with the latest developments.

    I just saw this:

    http://en.rsport.ru/other_sports/201...632846601.html

    So, Plushy won't compete at NRW. About the surgery itself, from a Plushy-interview (posted elsewhere on the forum by plushyfan):

    "I recently returned from Germany, where I had scheduled medical examination. I had a little surgery - they put the catheter in my back, cleaning the spine. So now I need to control... "

    What about other injuries? Does anyone have any recent (or recent-ish) updates on - for instance:

    Narumi Takahashi?

    Sui Wenjing?

    Alissa Czisny?

    Aliona Savchenko - is she recovering/recovered from her illness?

    Julia Lipnitskaia - her ankle?

    Any updates on Song Nan - hopefully his competing at TEB hasn't had any ill-effects?

    Anyone else?

    And lest anyone feels that this is a terribly depressing thread - a thought: I think that there is something good to be got of it; namely that we can truly come to appreciate the skaters and the struggles they go through, to achieve what they achieve. They are the reason we all love figure skating, and congregate on forums - and can share our love for the sport, and apppreciation of the skaters, and the joy and excitement they bring us. So - to the skaters!

    Don't forget that Todd Eldridge also had hip replacement surgery in 2012. Hips and skaters are not friends!

    IIRC, Todd had congenital issues as well--one leg was slightly shorter than the other, so he wore a lift in his skate. Don't know if that had any bearing on his hip issue, though.

    This is totally pie-in-the-sky, but . . . maybe the next era of sports medicine should be high-tech preventative medicine. Routinely checking high level athletes every year for developing weaknesses and compensating with exercises to strengthen those areas; reducing the number of repeats of skills that affect those areas until the weakness is dealt with; checking for congenital issues that can either be compensated for or, if unfixable, signal that the athlete might be better off pursuing other activities. A high-tech version of "train smart, not hard," in other words. Technology is used now for monitoring athletes' conditioning and training, so why couldn't it be used for injury prevention?

    I understand Johnny Weir and Rachel Flatt are out but what about Evan is he competing? Is he well? I haven't heard a thing? anyone want to make any odds or predictions - hopefully based on knowledge?

    ^ Well, Evan took time off from his training to attend the Golden Globes Awards last night.

    Here he is on his way to the after party thrown by movie moguls the Weinstein brothers. Lookin’ good, Evan!

    And hardly looking like someone who's off to Omaha in a week's time...

    If he turns up, I will be VERY surprised.
