Injury is every athlete's dread - the instant hard-fought careers plunge from glory to gut-wrenching disaster. From the moment of damage, a small army of doctors, physiotherapists, surgeons, coaches and support teams swing into action. This programme follows the extraordinary real-life drama of trauma, surgery, rehab and, for the lucky ones, return to glory. The constant pressure for athletes to perform takes its toll. Bodies are pushed to the limit with no thought of self-preservation. Every damaged athlete has a personal story - the shock of injury, the brutality of surgery, the burden of rehab and the emotional return to doing what they live for: playing elite competitive sport.
