This is pretty amazing.
Almost a year ago Georgia running back Sony Michel was in an accident involving an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) and in the process broke both bones (radius and ulna) in his forearm. The break was so bad that the bone penetrated the skin, requiring surgery.
Coming back from such a serious injury wasn’t a walk in the park but it was made easier by the Bulldogs biomedical engineering program.
In Georgia’s latest “Beneath the Helmet” video, head athletic trainer Ron Courson and members of the UGA biomedical engineering program take the time to explain exactly how they worked together to get the star running back on the field.
It’s easy to assume that if a player only misses one game due to an injury, it must not have been too serious. Maybe in the hands of lesser mortals than Ron Courson that might be the case, but we shouldn’t forget whom we’re talking about here.
