The Treatment

The Treatment

By Feelings & Co.

Rachel Haines is really good at gymnastics. And when you're really good at a really demanding sport, you eventually deal with injuries. At age 12, Rachel hurts her hamstring. At age 15, she fractures her spine.

Both times, Rachel is immediately taken to the team physician, a man named Larry Nassar.

Yes, that Larry Nassar.

Rachel's story is one of strength and survival — and, despite everything, a continued love of gymnastics. You can buy Rachel's book here.
