Play Forever

Kevin Stone

Why are some octogenarians competitive athletes while others struggle to walk up the stairs? It isn’t luck. It’s orthopaedic science. If you’re tired of doctors telling you that an injury will prevent you from playing the sports you enjoy, you’ll love Dr. Kevin R. Stone’s Play Forever.

All great athletes get injured. Only the best of them use those injuries to come back to their sport better—fitter, faster, and stronger than before. Through Dr. Stone’s revolutionary approach to sports medicine, you’ll discover how injuries can lead to a lifetime of high-performance fitness and athleticism.

Learn how the musculoskeletal system can be repaired through cutting-edge therapies, then honed and strengthened through semiannual fitness tests, preseason education and training programs, and regular in-season tune-ups. Backed by scientific outcome studies on orthopaedic treatments and implants, Play Forever will become your go-to health and fitness source, helping you play the sport you love to age 100 and beyond.

For many of us, participation in active sports is an important part of our lives. Unfortunately, as we grow older, our bodies become vulnerable to injury. Kevin Stone, a thoughtful and creative orthopedic surgeon, has written an extremely useful guide so that all of us are mentally and physically prepared to continue doing what we love for as long as possible. This is not a book for the lazy; it is a book for the inspired.

I appreciate Dr. Stone laying down some honest truths about competitiveness and mental focus in his new book. He takes on everything from participation trophies to stupid exercises to nutrition. As an action sports athlete, ortho, and dad, only Dr. Stone could cover all these subjects legitimately.
