Spring Lake, NJ – Dr. Michael Rothman, in response to an article published in Sports Illustrated, explains the real reason behind the increase in ligament injuries, like ‘Tommy John’ injuries, as well as chronic diseases, such as diabetes. Dr. Rothman points out that the current increase in Type II diabetes, ligament injuries, dementia and many other chronic disorders is caused by a low saturated fat, low cholesterol, and high carbohydrate diet. His article, entitled “Your Diet Can Prevent Tommy John Surgery”, is available on his blog at http://www.mdwellnessmd.com/blog/post/your-diet-can-prevent-tommy-john-surgery/
“Is there some connection between the development an epidemic of various chronic degenerative diseases and the increased incidence of ulnar collateral ligament tears necessitating Tommy John surgery? The answer is a resounding YES!” – Dr. Michael Rothman, Holistic Physician, “Your Diet Can Prevent Tommy John Surgery”
The SI article, Cutting Edge: a look at Tommy John surgery and search to save ligaments by Dr. Matt McCarthy, is “well written and well researched.” Dr. Rothman acknowledges this increase in connective tissue disorders, along with a host of other chronic diseases. He notes that no one at any level is asking the most important question:
“…I have yet to hear any writer or so-called authority talk about a weakness of the ligaments causing the problem… The question then becomes, is there a common denominator between all of these chronic degenerative diseases and the increased incidence of ulnar collateral ligament tears?” – “Your Diet is the Prevention of Tommy John Surgery”
