A whole bunch of years ago, I was skiing with my snowboarding friends and was challenged by my guy friends to a contest on one of the jumps. Not sure if I won or lost but I ended up with a torn up shoulder! Dr. Jordan Metzl got me back on the volleyball court within a few months.
I’m a science dork and I ask a gazillion questions when I go to the doctor. Yeah, I’m sure they love me! Honesty, nothing makes me happier than when doctors get out the sketch pad and start drawing and labeling to show me what’s going on and how it can be fixed. Dr. Metzl did just that!
The point of my post is to share the news about his new book: The Athletes Book of Home Remedies: 1,001 doctor-approved health fixes and injury-prevention secrets for a leaner, fitter, more athletic body!
You can pre-order it on Amazon.com, which I already did.
