Hello! I am a sports medicine doctor in the Boston area where I have been lucky enough to take care of thousands of patients with sports injuries over the past ten years. Sports are a very important part of my life so I love getting patients back on the field, court, or ice as quickly as safely possible. I started this blog because I spend a good part of my office hours talking to patients about their injuries and often use current professional athlete injuries as a comparison. As a result I get tons of questions about professional sports injuries not just from patients but also from friends and family. I thought that this blog would be a great place to discuss recent injuries in the professional sports world. I hope this blog can be a resource for other bloggers and members of the media and for water cooler one-upmanship.
I am not participating in the care of any of the professional athletes I discuss in this blog. I have never examined any of these athletes and therefore cannot make any diagnoses. I only have videos of injuries, press reports, and other clues from the locker room and practice field to go by. I really hope that you enjoy reading my posts and learn a little bit about sports injuries along the way. If there are any injuries that you think I should consider, PLEASE let me know!
