Dating professional footballers

Retired professional footballers are far more prone to develop knee pain and osteoarthritis and face problems with their knees earlier in life than the average person, a study has revealed.

In 2001, she married former Jacksonville Jaguars running back Chris Howard.

After divorcing him in 2005, she moved on to NFL safety Darren Sharper and Miami Heat shooting guard Dwayne Wade (above, whom she married in August 2014.)Turns out Sharper was a bit of a foul anyway: In 2014, he was arrested and charged with sexual assault and battery.

Dr Stephen Simpson, Director of Research & Programmes at Arthritis Research UK, said: “Osteoarthritis is the most common cause of joint pain and affects over 8 million people in the UK.”“Studies that focus on elite athletes, such as professional footballers, are useful in understanding the long-term impact of specific movements on musculoskeletal health, especially those associated with sports.

Ultimately, this can help pinpoint links and risk factors for osteoarthritis leading to effective ways to treat it and to prevent its development.“It’s worth reminding people who take part in regular sports or physical activity, such as football, that regular exercise is important for all ages and the long-term health benefits are immense.“If you are injured, we would advise that you take care and consult a health professional as soon as possible, to get advice to enable the best recovery.”The Football Association, Professional Footballers’ Association, Premier League and EFL, said: “We welcome Arthritis Research UK’s study into cases of ex-professional footballers affected by osteoarthritis and have collectively and collaboratively supported them in this research.

The study concludes that the ‘repetitive microtrauma’ of professional football, regardless of significant injury, is likely to be the main cause of increased risk of knee osteoarthritis.

The reported degree of increased adjusted risk (at least doubled) is in the order required by many national bodies to recognise knee osteoarthritis as an industrial disease for professional football.

Maybe they're attracted to the athletes' fame and money, or maybe they like their rugged personalities.
