#FOOTBALL IS MEDICINE ⚽️🏃🏽 A biopsychosocial therapy

The idea that football can be used as therapy and as a high-intensity and literally breath-taking training regime goes back centuries. To take one prominent example, the French philosopher
Voltaire describes in the Book of Fate (1747), how a patient is cured by playing with a sacred football: “…You must kick this Bladder, Sir, once a Day about your Hall for a whole Hour together, with all the Vigour and Activity you possibly can”,
“Ogul, upon making the first Experiment, was ready to expire for want of Breath”, “In short, our Doctor in about 8 days Time, performed an absolute Cure. His Patient was as brisk, active and gay, as One in the Bloom of his Youth.”
