Sports Physiology Mini-Project with Eric Porter and Lamier Howard
In this project, me, Eric, and Lamier have studied to see how Football can impact your own body. This is a project for Anatomy class, and the whole journey has been surprisingly interesting. We found out how our tissues in our body are affected negatively and positively as a result of playing Football. Throughout researching on many scholarly sources like ncbi, we learned that Football injuries sustained from playing can affect the nervous tissues, muscle tissues, and connective tissues. Scraps will be noticeable on the connective tissues because an important joint, the kneecaps, usually take the first blow when a person falls down from running. Nervous tissue damage can result from head first collisions, and in Football, this can be similarly to the effects of a car crash. Finally, the muscle tissues are affected from this because these tissues drastically affect a player's performance. A player would need to be muscular in the lower body and upper body in order to be protected from injuries and run fast.
We will be doing an Arm Wrestle activity in which this shows how the easy it is to damage your brain. More information will be given during the presentations in class.
