Football players can beat the summer heat by getting ready now
Houston, TX - 5/5/2011

Getting acclimated to the heat now, before two-a-days begin in August, will help football players avoid cramps, dehydration and other potentially serious injuries that could put a damper on the upcoming season.

"Spending all summer indoors is not a good idea, even if you are lifting weights and getting stronger," said Dr. David Lintner, an orthopedic surgeon and chief of the Houston Methodist Orthopedics & Sports Medicine. "A big part of the summer conditioning process has to take place outside. Whether it's basketball, running, or working outside, the body needs time to get accustomed to the heat. If players don't get used to the heat, they open themselves up to serious heat illness and, in more serious cases, death."

Patient Stories


Patient Stories - Sister Angelica Menta

Sr. Angelica Menta - Patient StoryDaily mass is Sister Angelica Menta’s sanctuary. Every day for more than 65 years, she’s attended church to give thanks, ask for forgiveness and find peace through prayer. But when it comes to living a healthy, pain-free life, that peace has eluded her.

As a farm girl growing up in upstate New York, Menta was tough and very athletic. She could hit, throw and catch a baseball as well as any boy in the neighborhood. But unlike those boys, she had a serious health problem. She was born with a dislocated hip that left one leg shorter than the other, and when it slipped out of place, it caused excruciating pain. At times, even a slight movement caused pain. As she got older, kneeling in church became a big problem.
