With Marc Rizzardo talking about some of his amusing experiences as a team trainer/physiotherapist when on-the-road, I thought I would go back in time to the "Good Old Days" with 4 short stories of injuries and the subsequent treatment (where the level of expertise was not quite as it is today). 

Getting treatment in the Old Days was a bit of a lottery.


Treatment the Good Old Days

by Tony Waiters

The good old days it may have been for some - myself included - but it wasn't all good, particularly if you were injured.  No player worth his salt ever likes to be injured.  Worse! Treatment systems in those times were based partly on science, but mainly on folklore and witchcraft.
