Recently there has been much attention given to longevity, burnout, and retirement in competitive esports which GosuGamers explored in depth. Coach Johnson, along with Dr. Caitlin McGee, a physical therapist with significant experience treating competitive gamers both reported then that the bodies and minds of players do take a beating and injury and burn out can be avoided with routine exercises targeting the areas most prone to injury or that are most used.
Being in seated positions for long periods of time can lead to overused injuries in the hips, back, shoulders, arms, and neck which can contribute to a decrease in the in-game performance of the players.”
