Report of the committee on research and educationby Nicholas JA. - last modified 2013-05-21 08:22

The chairman would like to express a few words

about the philosophy that has prevailed in the

production of this rather substantial and difficult

type of work. In the first place, sports medicine

involves many disciplines of science, which study

not only how a human reacts to sports and their

demands, but also how athletic activities in their

various forms are composed and their challenges

to us as performers. Physical education, engineering,

and anthropology, mingled together with

physiology, the medical aspects of sports, and

trauma, are so intermingled that there is great

difficulty to get universal agreement on the factors

that the committee has undertaken.
