If you are a team doctor, athletic trainer or student, I want to tell you about a great new app. It’s called Sideline Guidelines, and it walks you through all sorts of injuries, illnesses and emergencies that can occur covering sports. It’s available on the App Store, and it’s free! Check it out!
Also, remember to check out my new YouTube show – That’s Gotta Hurt with Dr. David Geier. This week I discussed Jimmy Garoppolo’s AC joint injury and Adrian Peterson’s bucket-handle meniscus tear. In This Week In Injuries, I covered some injuries important to football and baseball fans and people who play fantasy football. And in the YouTube Warriors segments, I showed some funny but painful fails in Parkour. Subscribe to my channel to get episodes delivered directly to you.!
