There are many reasons, medical and genetically, however it is possible to reverse.
By balancing and nutrienting the Body Cells
English Sport is years behind America in this regard
But as far as I know----and the England Rugby Nutritionist knows-------- apart from AFC Bournemouth, there are no top level Sportsmen in the UK with any knowledge or taking the products, , and certainly not yet at the Tigers....
Go on then... this ought to be good for a laugh.
Waiting............Just seen this, obviously you are a font of all Medical Knowledge !! If you have aspare half hour, google ''That Vitamin Movie'' and read Dr Michael Colgan'' The New Nutrition''..... Matt Lovell, England Rugby Coach is a firm believer and partaker !!
Firstly let's get this straight this isn't a question of medicine - it's a question of nutrition and sports performance. So whilst I am not a doctor, I am well informed on sports performance and conditioning.
I'm well aware of That Vitamin Movie and it's premise that you can treat certain (usually minor) illnesses with ultra-doses of vitamins - and also that the standard American/Canadian diet is vitamin deficient - the latter is definitely true, the former requires a lot more research but for some ailments is promising - though not to the extent that vitamin producing firms would have you believe.

Might be worth a read - it's 2013 dated but the research mentioned holds.
The idea of "balancing and nutrienting" the cells is jibberish in scientific terms and in particular with reference to sports performance. Whilst a balance micronutrient profile is important (and balancing this with your macronutrient profile) the idea that ultra doses of vitamins will be a preventative measure for physical injuries is at the best dubious and worst outright dangerous. Also worth noting the effects micronutrient profile would have on injuyr prevention are minimal given the forces at play playing rugby and the relatively advanced nature of the S and C and nutritionists working within the sport.
But if you want to believe that ultra-dosing vitamins could help prevent injury in any meaningful way... then be my guest.
