HOW A SPORTS-ORTHOPAEDIC SURGEON REALIZED THE IMPORTANCE OF BIOMECHANICS

  • Ejnar Eriksson

Abstract

During almost 50 years of sports medicine, I rapidly learnt to appreciate the importance of sports biomechanics but only slowly learnt to understand it. It has been said about us orthopods that we need to be twice as strong as an ox but only half as smart. What I will tell you in my lecture is how I gradually have come to realize that sports medicine simply cannot exist without sports biomechanics
