Welcome to Game On Physical Therapy:  When function meets medicine...

My goal with this blog is to keep you up to date with the wide wonderful world of medicine and relating it back to human function.  Movement and function are 2 of the keys we need that opens doors to a healthy, happy and successful lifesyle.

My specialty is Sports Medicine rehabilitation and specifically Post-Operative Rehab of the Shoulder and Elbow.  I'll be discussing with you common shoulder pathologies and why they happen in the first place.  You will learn how an Ankle sprain can cause shoulder impingement and you will also learn why I tight hip flexor can cause elbow injuries in a thrower.

I hope you all enjoy!
