My mission is to educate you about the more common and complex sports injuries and how they affect you the athlete or weekend warrior. Or how they affect your Fantasy Sports Roster. Either way, I want to break it down so that you can understand what the impact of the injury really means! Not what these reporters or so called "experts" on TV or internet/radio/podcasts think it means. Want to hear it from an expert point of view? Then you are in the right place!
I'm hoping to reach the masses out there in the world of sports. Not because I want fame or fortune. No. I just want to keep it real and provide accurate information based on my personal and professional experience in Orthopedic Surgery and Sports Medicine! I hope to gain some sponsors along the way to keep things going onward and upward. So please help, not with money, but with sharing. Post and share to your social media pages and follow the Podcast!
You will be helping me more than you kmow!
