Welcome to On The Shelf! This site was built to provide both insight and context behind some of the injury reports we hear in the media about our favourite athletes. I am a Physiotherapist who just happens to be a huge sports fan. My hope is that with my perspective I can make very technical-sounding injury terms and concepts not only easier to understand, but actually kind of interesting. I will try to stay up-to-date on currently injured athletes and their stories, address trends in sports injury and rehabilitation, and look back on some of the most notable athletes from years past and their stories, and how they overcame the challenges of their injuries. I hope you enjoy!
